Extremely popular, long-running series (1986-1992) that made it cool to be a clever problem solver. This was also back in the day that it was OK for kids to take apart small appliances. Many episodes feature guest stars who later became famous, like Terri Hatcher and Cuba Gooding Jr.

Rather than watching the inferior modern reboot, jump in and enjoy all seven seasons of the classic episodes on Prime!
