Oddball sitcom that dealt with a 1950's sitcom family (The Neilsons) who were on the "Sitcom Relocation Program" that relocated to suburbia, 1991. The Duffs were their (almost as strange) neighbors.Written by

The Nielsens are able to change their world from color to black-and-white and back again with their "Turnerizer" remote control. This is a dated reference to media mogul Ted Turner, who became a 1980s punchline for his efforts to have old black-and-white films converted to color. See more »
Early Nickelodeon comedy reminiscent of 1998 film "Pleasantville" concept
"Hi Honey, I'm Home" was an interesting member of the set of shows such as "You Can't Do That On Television" that characterized some of Nickelodeon's programming in the late 80's (or early 90's).
In retrospect, it seems as if this show, where 50's black-and-white T.V. and modern life meet, could have been the inspriation for concept of the 1998 film "Pleasantville."
Somewhat entertaining, moreso today. Now it serves as a pleasant look back to the earlier shows of Nickelodeon. Others of the era include the aforementioned "You Can't Do That On Television", "Today's Special", "Don't Just Sit There--Do Something!", "Belle and Sebastian", and "Pinwheel".
