Trivia

  • Burt Reynolds asked that his name be left off the series’ credits, since he was doing it as a favor to the producers. At the time, he was busy with Evening Shade (1990).
  • Christina Nigra was the original choice for the role of Evie, but the producers changed their minds at the last minute. The role of Lindsay was created especially for Nigra, at the eleventh hour.
  • Joe Alaskey’s role as Uncle Beano, the food-obsessed relative who knew about Evie’s secret, was his longest-running live-action role.
  • The old standard tune, “Swinging on a Star”, was the series’ theme song.
