Cool 1980s Family Adventure Series From the Disney Channel
19 September 1999 | by RHW5000See all my reviews

Chaos, adventure, romance, speed boats, two likeable kid characters, a nice looking female lead, and an animal doctor for the star amounts to 30-45 minutes of fun. Unfortunately, as soon as I started liking this series, it went off the air. I hope some episodes are on video one day. The theme song rocked!
