Trivia

The show was never originally intended to be a full-blown series - it initially was a one-time special. However, the popularity and high ratings from it led to it becoming a full show, which of course, lasted for several years. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end of the credits features a "Arnold Shapiro Productions" bumper that has a comical "Mr. Shapiro, step out of the car please" voice over, as if he is being arrested. See more »

A show that just freaks me out!
6 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I haven't really seen this show a very long time. I remember watching it on the Family channel which is now ABC Family, and then it moved on to CBS. I remember the part where a daughter and a father go on some picnic and when they were on the road. They were driving in some red two-door car, and then a dump truck fell on them! And all the sand covered the car. The next one I remembered is when the litte girl ask her mom if she could bathe her little brother and her mom said no but she did it anyway. The little girl said she was testing to see if the water was hot or cold. She felt the cold water and decided to turn it all the way to hot! Then her little brother said it was too hot and his skin started to melt. Her mother came in the bathroom and just completely freak out. And the next thing I remember is when those kids where in the basement with their father. Their father was looking at this heater and then light up a match, and then it just EXPLODES. The two children were badly burn that they had no hair and had to wear like protection on their bodies. I'm telling you. This is one scary show!
