I didn't watch this show as religiously as the others I've blogged about, but I feel obligated to do an entry about it, since I did one about Small Wonder and so many people tend to confuse the two.
If you remember the theme song, you might recognize it as Bing Crosby's "Swinging on a Star". It's funny how an old standard is so often associated with a short-lived syndicated series by members of my generation. I'm sure this makes pre-Baby Boomers want to tear their hair out.
So this story had your basic Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch formula:
- Evie discovers she's half-alien
- upon coming of age, Evie receives supernatural powers
- Evie abuses said powers, all while trying to keep her identity a secret
- wacky hijinks ensue
Evie's father (who we never saw) was voiced by none other than Bandit. Additionally, her uncle was Plucky Duck.
Here's a full episode, split up into four parts. Enjoy!
