One of the cutest shows I've ever seen!
I never got a chance to see Small Wonder in my youth until I saw it on the net last year. After watchin' the first episode, "Vicki's Homecoming", I fell in love with the show. After watchin' it lots of times, I think Small Wonder is one of the cutest shows I've ever seen! Vicki and Harriet are my faves. While Harriet may be a sneak and a pest, she's a cute and adorable sneak and pest! Seriously. I've seen most of the episodes. This ranks as one of the 3 cute shows of the 80's in my book. Punky Brewster and Webster are the other 2.moreless
It is not because something was a part of our childhood that it means it is good.
Small Wonder was a terrible, terrible, terrible show. Ignoring the fact that the protagonist was a robot (what is not a problem at all), the acting was awful, and the stories unfunny. If you haven't watched the series, but want a good children's sitcom, I recommend you Punky Brewster!
A sci-fi that laid foundations and inspirations to cartoons and movies.
Hehe, my level reminded me of this show! It's about a robot girl, Vicky, invented by his father. It's actually family oriented and displays good messages. It's quality shows how retro it is, which makes it more good. *sighs*. I miss this show. Good to watch. Worth your time. Notice the cartoons and other shows, movies today used this to make one. Ex. My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Arificial Intelligence.
The Small Wonder Experience- the band named after the show
Small Wonder has a special meaning to me that influenced a major part of my life in a way its creator could never imagine personally. It reflects a time in my history that got the ball rolling on my creativity. The musical band I play in is named The Small Wonder Experience in honor of the one show that defined my growing years and also the immortal guitar legend Jimi Hendrix. We have played a psychedelic blues rock version of the theme song often.moreless
i'm SO glad i found some of the episodes of this show on youtube.com
i was very young when i started watching this show. I was surprised to see that it began earlier than i thought. This was one show i enjoyed watching and wish they played on cable tv or on the tv channel Antenna TV. I miss this show alot and when i saw Tammy Brissette on Dancing with the stars, i almost didn't recognize her. That show was entertaining and funny, unlike half the comedy shows on today.
It's a Small Wonder...
Small Wonder is truly a wonderful, clean and entertaining TV show that lasted for four seasons 1985-1989. It features a typical family with a robot sister named Vicki (VICI). Ted Lawson (the father figure) invented the robot daughter. Very few people know about the secret of Vicky.
I love most if not all the episodes. Absolutely hillarious and entertaining. They do not make shows like this anymore. I know the special effects and the story line can be quite cheesy but that is part of its charm. I am truly proud to own Seasons One and Two on DVD. The condition of these episodes is simply amazing. Very few glitches but that is to be expected from a show that is at least 25 years old.
I hope Seasons 3 and 4 will be release sooner than later. It is truly an awesome TV Show.moreless
This show may seem cheesy by today's standards, but back then it seemed like the best thing on TV. Later it would be termed as one of the worst shows on TV. But when I watched this as a kid, I had still not developed a critical eye. I was hooked from the first episode. It would have been great if they had produced more episodes. The characters were funny and almost all the episodes were great. It's really sad that this show is not available on DVD yet. But there are rumors that it will be released next year. It would truly be nostalgic to watch Small Wonder again. I may not enjoy it as much as I used to, but it's sure to bring some childhood memories back.moreless
An engineer invents a robot to become part of his family.
I remember watching this as a kid. Now looking back, it's easy to see its flaws, but at the time it was a semi-popular show. The shows is all about the Lawson's living with Vicki whose a robot. It seems that Ted wanted to advance his career so he made Vicki. He had a small rival in the evil nerd known as Brindle. The Brindles were very annoying. They are truly the neighbors who look like losers, whom you don't want to know.
This show clearly had a young audience. We see Vicki trying to live like a kid, but we see her abnormal actions (such as her strength) which leads others to try and discover her secret. Other times like "Three's Company" is a show about the chaos that happens when things get out of hand.
Acting-wise, the acting was average, very average and noneo of the actors really had long TV or Movie careers except maybe William Bogert (who already was a couple of movies). It's an ok show, I've seen worse. For fans who liked it, it's a sign of some of the more enjoyable, but off the wall shows of the 80's.moreless
I love this show, I think they should make new seasons for it!
This is a really fun show I used to watch in my old country when I was little. It actually showed originality in someone inventing a robot and labeling its name! One episode shows the robot has feelings and that is great too.
This show is really funny sometimes, I like Vicky's way of talking and I have a great time watching it.
This show should have new seasons and they should start airing it again so we could all have more good times and remember those times of childhood we had while watching it.
They should also make a movie about it for a return or something! But well that's Life!moreless
