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.

DVD producer lets the cat out of the bag on the studio's official message boards
Posted by David Lambert
One of the cult favorite syndicated TV shows of the '80s was the 1985 series Small Wonder, starring Tiffany Brissette (who later appeared in an episode of Parker Lewis Can't Lose and several epsiodes of Equal Justice). Brissette played "Vicki", a robot made up to look like a little girl, and who's proper name was actuall "V.I.C.I." (Voice Input Child Identicant). Other stars included Dick Christie (Days of Our Lives), Marla Pennington (Soap), Jerry Supiran (Galactica 1980) and Emily Schulman (Christy). Schulman twice won a Young Artist Award for her work on Small Wonder.
The series, which ran for 4 seasons and 96 episodes, is among the top thirty most-wanted series that are unreleased on DVD, according to our site's registered members who vote for which shows they want to see on home video. Apparently the large following hasn't gone unnoticed, because our friends at Shout! Factory seem to have picked up the rights to this release. At least, that's what one of Shout!'s DVD Producers, Brian Ward, told fans yesterday at the studio's official message board! In a thread where fans were requesting that Shout! put out the program, Ward responded, "Oh, all right... Because it's you guys, we'll release it. Expect the first volume sometime early next year. - Brian"
Excellent news! Our thanks to all the readers who e-mailed us to make sure we saw that post, beginning with "Christopher H."; we appreciate the heads-up! We'll get everybody an exact release date and other details about this long-awaited release, just as soon as Shout! finalizes everything. Stay tuned!
I find this TV series enjoyyable to watch. I dont remember it when it first came on TV. Some people like
this kind of humor/acting and some dont. So it is what you like. If not sure about this, go to youtube and
watch some video clips or watch Antenna TV which is currently showing the series at this time The quality
of the DVDs are very good. The DVDs came very quickly after I ordered it. Thats about it.
