Storyline

Sitcom about the antics between two twins, Kate and Allison (played by real life twins Liz and Jean Segal). Allison was always the serious outgoing sister, while Kate was more fun and laid-back. In the first season, the twins lived in Des Moines with the father Art, who ran a health club/dance studio. In the second season, the twins headed to New York City to live with their aunt Margo (who wrote children's books). Allison enrolls in design school trying to win points from hard-to-impress Mr. Arrechia, while Kate tries to break into acting. Written by Pat McCurry <laraspal00@aol.com>

not sure if i saw this, but i liked something like it
30 June 2006 | by mimser1See all my reviews

i am not sure whether i had ever watched "double trouble" or not; and I am not sure whether it was a television series or a movie, but if it was a television series in 1984, then I would have to say "yes, i have seen it." i can remember watching something that had twins on it, but i am not sure if this is the show that i am thinking of. of course, for a 28 year old to remember that far back, which seems like a long time ago, is very strange that i can remember something like that. i have to say, though, that if it was the television series that i am thinking of, i enjoyed watching it very much as a 6 year old. it makes me very sad when you fall in love with a show, then they suddenly decide to take it off the air.
