5. Small Wonder (Syndication, 1985-1989)
Starred: Tiffany Brissette, Jerry Supiran, Dick Christie, Marla Pennington, Emily Schulman
Talk about a series telling the same joke week in and week out. The members of the Lawson family adopt inventor patriarch Ted's (Dick Christie) secret robotic creation, Vicki (Tiffany Brissette), the humanized version of Voice Input Child Identicant, as one of their own. She has all the classic robotic trappings: removable panel with protruding wires, stilted mechanical speech patterns, and super strength, and each episode features zany human-robot relations while the nosy neighbors come thisclose to discovering "Vicki's" true nature. Wash, rinse, repeat, unplug the TV.
