  • The Neighbors features both Bonnie and Brandon Brindle. The annoying neighbors next door.

    This is the 2nd episode of Small Wonder called "The Neighbors". We all pray that we don't get nosy neighbors like them. Brandon Brindle played by William Bogert and Bonnie Brindle played by Edie McClurg are featured for the first time. Both of them are very nosy, annoying, and borrowers of the Lawson's personal possessions. Despite this, this particular episode is hillarious and introduces these new characters on the show. Rodney the Robot created by Brandon was made for Harriet. Little do they know that the Lawson's have the perfect robot Vicki. I love the part where Rodney introduces himself to Vicki and shakes her hand. Unfortunately Vicki goes berserk because of the magnet that is attached to rodneys hand. Absolutely funny!!! Funny that the Brindles don't suspect Vicki as a robot. But that is part of the charm of his hit show.moreless
