If anyone remembers this show, tell me it wasn't the best thing, ever. 

Small Wonder was a show about an inventor who invented a robot that looked and acted like a human kid.

I've heard it called the worst show ever.  It may in fact be, but I still liked it and watched it quite often in syndication in the mid '90s.

Ten seconds of this show was all it took to plunge my mind into the very depths of madness and despair. Needless to say, I never watched it again. Wink

I'd rather watch Small Wonder than ALF any day.

Yes indeed I remember this show.  It was on at an odd time on Saturdays in my local area.  No one ever thought it was odd this girl spoke in a robot voice for several years.

When Andrew was considering a seperate television category I mentioned this show and the bloody, gaping wound in inflicted on me many, many years ago.

So, presenting another installment of

THE BEST OF RAFFINE:

I like the idea of a television thread.

The best example of a truly bad series I can think of was a 80's sitcom called Small Wonder. It was all about a "wacky" scientist who invented a robot that looked just like a little girl. For some reason it was all a big secret.

I have a special hatred for this series: at the time it was on I was commuting  weekly a long way through rural Alabama (in my Datsun B210 Honeybee mentioned in another thread). The crappy radio only picked up one station: a local ABC TV station radio simucast.  My commute coincided with the broadcast of Small Wonder.  I spent many Friday nights driving through dark, deserted Alabama countryside with only the gang from Small Wonder as company.

I can still her that girlbot's monotone, droning voice when I close my eyes...  Buggedout


Oh. So that's what they looked like.


Some wounds never heal.

I loved Small Wonder.

It's still a horrible show, nonetheless.

But yeah, I loved the fact that like, she never ate or drank, but then the actress went through puberty, so the dad "Made some modifications" so she could age, eat and drink. 

No Charles in Charge, but it was fun. TeddyR

I hated the kid who played the brother.  Just something about him that was disturbing.

No.  The annoying neighbor was a girl.  She was in Troop Beverly Hills.  Clunker that was too.  Only good part of Troop Beverly Hills was Kellie Martin.

I remember the episode with Jesse Ventura in and he didn't believe she was a robot until via the miracle of dodgy special effects she carried him across the room  TeddyR

This show was on ALL the time. Typical 80's syndicated sitcom. Lots of bad jokes and tons of canned laughter. This had to be the single most annoying cast in TV history. The brother, the neighbor, the parents, all of them were ANNOYING!




I tried to find some pics of Tiffany all grown up but I could only find this one. Whats with the creepy uber-nerd next to her?



And this is just classic. I would love to see this episode.

Ah, the smoking/drug episode.  Fun times that was.   BounceGiggle

I don't think anybody in that cast has worked again.  I think just the red-headed mom in that picture.  I've seen her in stuff.

Edie McClurg who pops up here and there in movies.  My favorite, when she was the secretary in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

She still acts.  The rest disappeared.  She was great in Ferris Bueller.

I loved that there was a rumor that Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins was the brother on this.  He was like, 17/18 years old at the time.
