Wednesday YouTube: Small Wonder

Small Wonder was a syndicated TV ‘sitcom’ that ran from 1985-89 and concerned the trials and tribulations of a girl robot named VICKI (Voice Input Child Identicant). BoingBoing so graciously points us to the opening credits:

You can get cancer just by listening to that saccharine theme song, yikes! And I have to say, despite the seeming lack of male gigolo robots, I get very strong A.I. Artificial Intelligence vibe from this. I’m guessing there’s no post-robot ‘beings’ that show up at the end and allow Vicki to ‘be’ a little girl again.
