Small Wonder was a science-fiction sitcom aimed at kids that ran for 96 episodes from 1985 to 1989. The show starred Tiffany Brissette as a robot named VICI, Jerry Supiran as her brother Jamie, and Emily Schulman as her annoying neighbor, Harriet.
Before diving into the pilot and Thanksgiving episodes, we talk about the unusual syndication of the show and the show runner’s other robot-themed ventures. Megan talks about her robot obsession, Steve talks about his childhood school plays, and we both try the Aerobar, the lesser-known candy made by the same people who brought you the KitKat.
