Hi Honey, Im Home!
Fresh, perceptive, yet short-lived series. Inspiration
for Pleasantville? hmmm. Told the story
of the Nielsens, a B&W, wholesome sitcom family.
However, something happens and they get stuck in the real
world. Via the aid of a machine called the Turnerizer
(hehe) they can switch from being in color to being
in B&W. Wacky adventures ensue. Ran from 1991-1992. CBS would air the episodes first, then at night they would air on Nick. 13 episodes.
were once a sitcom family on your black and white TV.
Now we're off the air, been pulled from there and dropped into reality.
Life was once much duller, they put color in our monochrome.
Still, she gabs all day and spends my money. I find the situation funny
Doesn't life seem so re-runny? Hi honey Im home! Hi honey Im home!
