Good show

I used to watch this show when I was a little girl. Although I don't remember much about it, I must say that it was a pretty good show. Also, I don't think I've seen every episode. However, if you ask me, it was still a good show. I remember the opening sequence and theme song vaguely. Also, I vaguely remember the episode where Miles (Jacob Gelman) gets pulled up to the ceiling of the mall when he's holding a big bunch of balloons. In addition to that, everyone was ideally cast, the costume design was great. The performances were top-grade, too. I hope some network brings it back so I can see every episode. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I don't think I've seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, if some network ever brings it back, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
