Small Wonder was one one of the greatest shows of the 80s. Watching that little robot girl try to pretend to be a real kid was always super entertaining, even though it was a bizarre concept.

When inventor Ted Lawson brought home a robot for his family to help mature, they weren't expecting her to become such a big part of their family. But after 4 seasons, the show ended and it left us wondering, what happened to the Lawson family?

After creating Vicki, Ted Lawson had to bring her home to help her acclimatize to family life. He has to try to keep her existence quiet, but it's hard when you build a super strong child who just happens to have appeared in your house.

Christie went on to act in a few parts, but in 1999 he stepped away from acting for a full ten years. He came back to do a part on Breaking Bad and has since joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful.

She was the one who always treated Vicki the best, acting like she was a real person. After the show wrapped, she realized that while she was happy to have been on the show, she didn't think it showed off her talents. She decided to leave acting behind and instead focus on her family.

What about the kids, how did they turn out after leaving the show?
