ABC had recently been bought by Disney, who at the time were planning to open their Animal Kingdom theme park.

I miss this show
27 January 1999 | by sk8skiSee all my reviews

I think that this show was cool and I wish that they hadn't taken it off the air. It was so sweet the way that Ricky took care of Ben knowing that it was really his son. Just another victim of the ratings war.
