I was just barely reminded of a show that I used to watch when I was a small child and I can't remember the title of it. It is driving me crazy! Maybe one of you can remember.

It was a show akin to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Just an average sitcom about a growing up and going through grade school. The biggest thing I can remember about the show is that the intro featured the song Swinging on a Star.

Not the same recording, but this is the song:

Any help?

Was it the one where the lass was half-alien and could freeze time and stuff, with hilarious consequences? That show had Swinging on a Star as it's theme I believe, and was called Out Of This World. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_of_This_World_%28TV_series%29)

That's it. I guess I associated the time freezing with witch craft instead of alien super powers. Man, what a terrible show.

Oh man...I think I remember this. Did the dad talk out of some weird glowing crystal diamond cube thing? Or was that some other horrible show?

I totally remember this show! And "Small Wonder" with the robot girl! And there was this show, with these alien brothers, where if you hit one the other felt it instead...no one ever remembers that one.

But out of this world was awesome in a horribly campy way.
