classic rarity from my childhood, 23 March 2004
Author: gilbynziggy ( from Sumner, Iowa USA

i remember when this show was on the air along with other grand shows like "hi, honey i'm home", and "clarissa explains it all". the golden oldies of nickelodeon... *tear, how i miss them so! this show lived longer than "hi honey..." and about, if even, half of the time "clarissa..." i remember the merv, safety advice, because merv was a little runt, and grant was the smart black guy who wore a lot of white and light lime green, and walter was a gross, white trash kid, i believe alex was really popular, and possibly a cheerleader, and erin was the good-girl that was very nature-friendly. mr. lippman, was a nearly bald skinny principal whose boss-man was always breathing down his neck. i can't really remember the begining song like most people usually always remember, but i do remember that this group of people were considered the under-classmen, hence the name, and were looked down upon and teased by the upper-classmen. they also always sat around this little indoor tree thing with steps around the sides, it was their hang-out place. a very good show, i miss it greatly even though i was only in 2nd grade when it was on.
