Question: Who asked her sisters Irlene and Louise to share hosting duties on a 1980 variety show?
Last Question: What sitcom starred an 11-year old robot named Vicki, short for “Voice Input Child Identicant”?
Answer: Small Wonder
Before the Kardashians, there was another television show about a female robot manufactured by a parent.
Small Wonder was a sitcom that ran from September 7, 1985 to May 20, 1989. It was about a robotics engineer who, after he secretly creates a robot modeled after a real human girl, tries to pass it off as their daughter.
V.I.C.I. (“Voice Input Child Identicant” or Vickie) was an android in the form of a 10-year-old girl, built by Ted Lawson. She had superhuman strength and speed. The Lawson family tried to keep the robot’s existence a secret, but their annoying neighbors, the Brindles, would pop upat the most unexpected moments — especially nosy next-door neighbor Harriet who’s dad just happens to be Ted Lawson’s co-worker.
Here is the opening theme of the show:
