109 Pineapples for Child Sit-Com Stars Rumored To Be People They're Not. Yea. Hmm.

vicky the robotToday I was thinking about that-show-from-the-80s-with-Vicky-the-Robot. Upon quickly googling "Vicky the Robot Show," I remembered: Small Wonder. Oh yes, yes.

Oh, I loved that show. A girl with a plastic back hiding lots of buttons and wires! Hmm? Cool!

The funny thing? Checking out imdb, neither Vicky nor Jamie (the bro) did shit after the show got canned.

How could such a brilliant show be a career-ender?

Although... Brian Austin Green and Devon Odessa did a few episodes, and they both went on to score mild fame in teen dramas... so hey, all is not lost.

ALSO: weird rumor that I'd like to bring back: the one that posits that the kid who played Jamie was actually Billy Corgan.

Come to think of it, wasn't there another rumor that the older brother from Mr.Belvedere was actually Marilyn Manson? Or did I just think that?

Update: The Marilyn Manson/Rob Stone from Mr.Belevedere thing... a "real rumor."

What's up with this rumor motif?
I mean, whatever, fine. Spread this one: Simon Cowell was actually the little brother, Albert, on Little House on the Prairie.
All true.

Being a child star must suck when your show gets canned.. You get used to being a star and then it's over.. And finding another job when you get older is impossible because your always remembered as that kid who was on that show

Well how's this for incest. OK, not really. But the boy who played Willie was Melissa Gilbert's (Laura's)brother, AND the boy who played Andy Garvy was Albert's brother. Yeah. No stage moms there.
