The best show ever!
9 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was one of my alltime favorite television shows, yet I had to use iMDB because I forgot the title! Anyway, I absolutely loved this show! I remember many things from it.

1. The time the borther waned to revolutionize travel by suspending people in mid-air and letting the Earth's rotation bring their destination to them.

2. The time the brother was watching "Your Voice is Changing Charlie Brown" and Charlie Brown could be heard switching over to the womp-womp sounds that the Peanuts cartoons used for adults talking in mid-sentence.

3. The time the little sister ate to much chocolate and went crazy running around the house.

4. In the first episode, the little sister 'adopted' (sponsored) a large number of children with her mom's credit card so she wouldn't be lonely while her sister was away.

This was and still is the greatest show ever made!
