Should have been on longer than it was, 22 August 1999
Author: JennLynn from Asheville, North Carolina

This show, a spin-off of The Torkelsons, was great. But all Disney sitcoms never seem to last long. And some are actually good (a few though). A big primetime producer (ex. CBS) should have had this show on their network, with Disney the producer. Something like that. We need shows like this. Where are they?
