    Talking Remembering a very old Disney Channel Show...

    Hey Does anyone remember that old show from the mid 90's where the single mother with like 5 or 6 kids lived in a house, and then one of her daughters always used to sit on the windowsill and talk to the moon? I have asked almost 15 people and they remember the show, they just can't remember the name of it. Someone please help, it would be great. I have been trying to remember the name for about 2 months now (cuz i have no life) Thanks

    OMGosh!!! I actually found it!!!

    It was called The Torkelsons and later Almost Home. The teenaged girl was named Dorothy Jane and she was in love the older neighborboy named Riley Roberts!!! The mom's name was Millicent. Check out the listing for it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Torkelsons/Almost_Home

    YAY!! (it only took me most of the day!!!)

    I remember the Torklesons and the way the mom said "Dorothy Jane". That was a good show.

    Unhappy Re: Remembering a very old Disney Channel Show...

    Hi i have an extremely bad memory and i can't remeber much about this show but i used to love it so very much. It was between 1989-1993. The show had 3 cowboys or maybe 4 but they played insturments and sang and told stories. It looked old western. But i am not to sure but i remember it on disney. Hopefully someone might know what show im talking about. There was one cowboy that had glasses and played a stand up bass and they wore big cowboy hats. What is strange is that show i feel in love with i now live where their are cowboys everywere. I want to find out so i can share it with my children.

    Oh gee! I remember it, I would remember not to watch it when hubby was around, being as I am certain he would have teased me, it is enough to be teased about the Wizard of Oz all my life, then they go and have a tv show, not one, but two. Woe is me with this cursed name!
