Storyline

Nine-year-old Amy has decided that klutzy neighbor Arthur is the one she's going to marry.

So she comes up with what she thinks are foolproof schemes to get him to succeed, which will give him more time to spend with her. Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

About as charming as abdominal cramps!
6 March 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Little Amy" is apparently a pilot for a TV series that fortunately was never made! I say this because the show was pretty dreadful--with bad acting, an unappealing star and a creepy script.

Amy is a child who appears to be about 7 years-old. While her family thinks it's cute, she's in love with a boy who appears to be about 16. Apparently, folks at the time didn't think this was creepy--but her and her dad talking about this just made me feel a bit ill at ease!! This episode consists of of Amy trying her best to make this boy the new star of the school's football team.

In practice, this show appears to be a reinvention of "Dennis the Menace" but with a little girl. A big difference, however, is that Amy has none of the charm of Jay North from "Dennis". While I hope Debbie Megowan has had a great life, she also was terrible in the show and had all the appeal of a stomach virus! And, given the lousy script, you can't help but cringe at every moment. Terrible but fortunately the TV executives in charge realized this and didn't pick up this show!
