My impressions of "The Wizard"
31 January 2002 | by MuldernscullySee all my reviews

I was ten years old when "The Wizard" began. It was a favorite new show of mine. I remember it being a show about a little person who makes inventions and has all sorts of adventures. This web site is the only place I have found that has made mention of this show. At least now I know I wasn't imagining "The Wizard". Too bad it didn't last. It was an exciting show that not many people remember.
