A show on TGIF in the 80s that made me very very happy to see each week.
25 July 2016 | by PrincessMoon3See all my reviews

I loved this show when I was a kid! I loved their " work to do" song. For years I couldn't find anything on it and thought that I was crazy. Did I make this stuff up? It was heart warming and fun. Hello, it was on TGIF for goodness sakes. It didn't last, but at least we got it at all.

The best thing about this show was that everyone enjoyed being around each other. You just wanted to go to the beach with them all and have fun when they said " hey does anyone want to go to the beach?"

I can't remember a plot to save my life, but everything about this show had that fun sitcom feel to it. It won me over right away. I was just a kid, but I loved it.

It makes me happy to know that someone out there remembers this show. It makes me feel young again. I really wish a lot of things like this streamed or were on DVD.
