About halfway through the October 16th, 1987 broadcast of "I Married Dora", ABC News broke in with live coverage of the rescue of "Baby Jessica". She had captured the hearts and attention of the entire nation after having fallen into and becoming trapped in a deep hole in her home town of Midland, Texas. The balance of the episode was never seen by the home audience. See more »

User Reviews

Funny Show with a memorable final scene.
3 July 2002 | by Billy-25See all my reviews

"I Remember Dora" was one of those great shows that nobody watched. Elizabeth Pena was funny and beautiful. I also remember the last episode having an extremely jarring ending. It had one of the characters leaving the family to take a job in another country. He goes through the door to the plane, leaving the family in tears. He comes back a moment later. "what's wrong?", he is asked. "It was canceled," he replies. "What, the flight?" "No, our series!" At which point the camera pulls back, revealing the sets, lights and crew, and everyone turned and waved good-bye to the camera. I was 13 and remember this being EXTREMELY disturbing, but a brave wink to the few fans the show had.
