Answer: Small Wonder

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.
