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.

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.

This show was out when I was in elementary school. I remember watching it a lot when I was in kindergarten-2nd or 3rd grade. I wanted to purchase it not because I remembered much about it (I only remembered Vicky and Jamie but couldn't recall much about the episodes themselves) but simply because it was a show I watched a lot in my childhood. I recently bought the first season and not only am I starting to remember having watched each episode, but I am also laughing my behind off at them even though I am now an adult. The humor is cute, witty and clearly aimed at both children and adults. I think it's also cool to see just how '80s everything was (including the antiquated technology). I think this is definitely a feel good show that children and adults of today will love! I plan on getting copies of subsequent seasons.......when they get a little bit cheaper.

The 1980's had it's fair share of silly, yet kid-friendly sitcoms! For example, Punky Brewster, Down To Earth, Alf, Silver Spoons, etc. With that being said, parents didn't have to worry about screening what their children were watching on television!
Currently, the majority of ALL sitcoms are profane! Additionally, they could care less about offending people and they care absolutely nothing about teaching morals and values through this medium!
Give me the silly, kid-friendly shows with heart over the trash on current tv ANYDAY!
Okay, it's a child playing a robot and the series revolves around the issues that having a robot in the family can cause!
Throw reality out the window and have fun watching this series! It's silly, but it's good, clean family entertainment!
