Get Smart for Kids
11 December 2000 | by hillariSee all my reviews

Beans Baxter was one of the first shows offered by the FOX network, and it was a quirky little show with hints of satire. I loved how Baxter's mother was totally clueless about her son's adventures, as well as that of her missing husband (Dad was a spy). The show should have been given a better chance. FOX decided to push Married With Kids instead.
