Should have been on longer than it was
22 August 1999 | by JennLynnSee all my reviews

This show, a spin-off of The Torkelsons, was great. But all Disney sitcoms never seem to last long. And some are actually good (a few though). A big primetime producer (ex. CBS) should have had this show on their network, with Disney the producer. Something like that. We need shows like this. Where are they?
