Editorial Reviews

Small Wonder confirmed the age-old adage: If it looks like a ten-year-old girl and talks like a robot . . . it must be a ROBOT!

When genius cybernetics engineer Ted Lawson (Dick Christie) brings home his top-secret invention, a Voice Input Child Identicant or V.I.C.I. (Tiffany Brissette), life becomes anything but mechanical for the Lawson Family. With his boss and his nosy family (the Brindles) living next door, Ted, his wife Joan and their son Jamie must pass Vicki off as a real child. It is easy for Joan (Marla Pennington-Rowan), who cannot help doting on her like a daughter, but harder for precocious Jamie (Jerry Supiran), who uses Vicki to do his homework and to ward off Harriet (Emily Schulman), the annoying redheaded girl next door.

Small Wonder aired for five seasons in syndication and often reran out of order, to the chagrin of fans (not to mention the writers). All 24 original episodes are included here in their intended order. Small Wonder has withstood the test of time to emerge as a classic laser beacon of 80s culture.

Customer Reviews

Shout Factory needs to buy this show and release it!
Television Addict
This is a show I can watch with my own daughter since it was a great family show.
D. Loayza
In other words, it goes without saying that the show was bad.

Small Wonder is a goldmine waiting to make the company who releases it on DVD money. The children who grew up watching it are now the adults who would spend money to buy it. Small Wonder ellicits a strong feeling of nostalgia and the mention of the shows name brings back happy memories of days without mortgages, bills, jobs, and the real world. I'm willing to spend money to feel that way again, and I think the Small Wonder DVDs can be a bridge to those happier times.

As a huge fan of "Small Wonder", '80s TV and just silly family sitcoms in general I can't tell you how excited I am to have the Season 1 DVD set of this classic series.

"Small Wonder" revolved around the Lawson Family and Vicki; a Voice Input Child Identicant that was raised as a child. Vicki could get into mischief every once in a while which ended up being very funny only because it was so foolish. Also the series included lots of talented special effects which rarely (if ever) have been seen in a sitcom of this type. And, although Vicki had superhuman powers (she could lift a grown man off the ground with 1 hand), she was also very relatable because somehow she was always able to do something sentient in every ep.

The star of the show was Tiffany Brissette, in the title-role. Tiffany played the robot-child perfectly because she was so real, or should I say unreal in each and every ep. Dick Christie and Marla Pennington were the parents, and Jerry Supiran was their son, Jamie. Rounding out the cast is Harriet (Emily Schulman), the Lawson's annoying neighbor and William Bogert and Eddie McClurg played her parents, Bonnie and Brandon Brindle.

After watching this entire season I have some very important questions:
Why does Joan's hair change from bob to cotton candy in every other ep?
Why doesn't anyone ever notice that Vicki speaks in monotone?
Why didn't Ted ever tell Brandon and Bonnie to bug off?
Why does their house have 2 fireplaces yet only 2 bedrooms?
Didn't Jamie ever get creeped out by having Vicki sleep in his cabinet?
Did Reggie grow up to be the first black president?
Did Harriet and Chrissy Snow share the same hairdresser?
How happy was Edie McClurg when she left this show and got the "Valerie" gig?

Small Wonder was a good show when it was on television in the 1980's. It was a show that was fun and entertaining. It was always fun to tune in every week to watch the program to see what the Lawson's were up too. It would be nice to relive thoes fun memeries of this excellent program again. I hope the studio will release it soon.

Pros:
Only once in a lifetime does a televised production come along that changes the way people think. The way people live. The way people view life in general. This televised production in which I am speaking of is of course, Small Wonder; the title being misleading because there's nothing "small" about this audio/visual masterpiece at all. Everything it did, it did in a big way. Quite frankly, it is the televised equivalent of "American Beauty", "Catcher in the Rye", Pink Floyd's "The Wall", or anything else at the top of its class in their respective medium. Luckily, in regards to Small Wonder, and thanks to the humanitarians at Shout Factory Inc. LLC, the medium for Small Wonder is no longer old, illegally recorded VHS tapes or Betacam masters in Fox Studio's warehouses: the medium is now Digital Versatile Disc (or a some people refer to it, DVD).

As anyone who had the benefit of experiencing Small Wonder during the mid 1980s already is aware of the plot: a lonely but extremely intelligent father incapable of producing a female zygote of his own opts to go the artificial intelligence-route (in vitro fertilization was illegal at the time of the show's taping). His desire for a female offspring is further reiterated by the fact that Mr. Lawson has named his firstborn son "Jamie". Mr. Lawson creates a robot that not only has an acronym for a name, but also shows love, compassion, intelligence, and once in a while, a sense of humor to lighten up the otherwise overly serious subject matter of scientists "playing God".

The show taught us that not only is man capable of creating a machine so intelligent that it can actually learn and feel emotion, but that the machine, despite its vast intelligence, will not turn on man and begin a confrontation or even worse, a tech-war.

Undoubtedly the finest TV show ever produced or aired in the history of television. The fantasy of every American family is to own a robot that looks like a 10 year old girl. This becomes REALITY for the Lawson family! Sadly, only 96 episodes were produced.
This MUST OWN DVD set belongs in every home.
