Amie’s Top 10 All Time TV Shows: #10 – SILVER SPOONS

Daemon's TV - Top 10 All Time TV Shows Countdown


Silver Spoons

When I was a kid I believed Ricky Stratton (12 year old Ricky Schroder) had it all: a mansion, break dancing skills, a wealthy toy inventor for a father and the friendship of Alfonso Riberio. Don’t even get me started on the toy train he could ride through his living room. Combine all this with what could be the best TV theme song of all time and you have Silver Spoons.

Cast: Rick Schroder, Erin Gray, Joel Higgins, Jason Bateman, and Alfonso Ribeiro.

Plot: Edward Stratton III, a wealthy toy inventor, is surprised to find he has a 12 year old son (Ricky Schroder) when Ricky turns up on his doorstep. The result is a unique father-son comedy in which Ricky teaches his young-at -heart father something about being an adult and Edward shows Ricky a little bit about being a kid.
