While growing up as kids, television programs invariably become an integral part of our lives. The colorful images permanently get registered in our memory. There are certain shows that we really adore while there are others which we don't.
As we grow into adults we gradually get distanced from our favorite programs and characters. Sometimes when we are taking a break from our busy schedules, a feeling of nostalgia gets hold of us as we are inexplicably reminded of some of our fondest childhood memories. We end up reminiscing about our beloved shows and characters. One such television show that I am often reminded of is the American sitcom, Small Wonder. The show was aired on television from 1985 to 1989. I was fortunate enough to catch it during one of its reruns years later. Of all the show's character, it's the character of V.I.C.I. aka Victoria that has remained my favorite. For the uninitiated, V.I.C.I. is a robot modeled upon a real human girl. The memorable character was played by child actor Tiffany Brissette. By the virtue of essaying the character of V.I.C.I., Brissette immortalized both herself as well as the character, at least that's what I like to believe.
Tiffany Brissette's showbiz career began at the young age of 2, all thanks to her mother's efforts to get her enrolled in various pageants and talent competitions. Brissette subsequently appeared in various television commercials including the ones for IBM, Care Bears, and Florida Orange Juice. Brissette first major appearance was in the 1983 movie Heart Like a Wheel. She then made a guest appearance on Webster before taking up the pivotal role in Small Wonder.
After the series went off the air in 1989, she continued to make television appearances. She starred in Parker Lewis Can't Lose and was also a part of the failed television pilot Beanpole. Her last acting assignment was in the 1991 television series Equal Justice. Brissette eventually decided to give up her acting career in order to pursue higher studies. She subsequently completed her bachelor's degree in psychology and took up nursing as a profession. She has not returned to television in over two decades.
Brissette may have bid adieu to showbiz but her colorful characters remain permanently etched in our memories. Today, we will look at some of the rarest Tiffany Brissette's photographs available on the internet.

While we all know that she started out very young, this click would come as a surprise to most of us. Smile has been Tiffany Brissette's USP. And she has an entire repertoire of different kinds of smiles.
As far as I am concerned, this is one of the most memorable clicks of Tiffany Brissette's from Small Wonder. The beloved V.I.C.I. is actually not a human being, after all. She is actually a robot modeled upon a real human girl. As soon as the wig is taken off, her bald head is revealed. Cruel, isn't it?
Tiffany Brissette is a little angel ready to take off. But, why is she so sad? It appears she is having a bad day. Perhaps, she is feeling lonely. Or, maybe she is angry. I dare not come close to her. There are a few things more alarming than the wrath of a pretty little angel.
This is one of my favorite clicks from Small Wonder. Disguised as a blonde, Tiffany Brissette is dressed to kill. The poor kid is just drolling. But one can't really blame him. Can we? After all, young Brissette's magnetic charm can drive anyone crazy, especially when she is dressed to kill.
Once again it is Tiffany Brissette's contagious smile that is the highlight of this picture. That expression on her face says it all. She is simply oozing with confidence. The mere mortals around her can bask in her reflected glory.
This is one iconic picture from Small Wonder. We have not one but three robots. Since V.I.C.I. is a robot she cannot sleep like normal human beings. During the night, she retires to her cupboard. Isn't it cruel on the part of Ted and Joan to subject the poor little robotic unit to such bouts of claustrophobia? This picture serves as poetic justice with both Ted and Joan getting a dose of their own medicine.
Tiffany Brissette quit her acting career at a very young age. All her popular work has been as a teenager. But how she looks in this picture would blow anybody who has seen her as a teenager. She is barely recognizable and looks stunningly beautiful.
Some people, wherever they go, are always the center of all attraction. This holds true for Tiffany Brissette. There is a certain enigmatic charm about her that makes her a difficult person to ignore.
Here is another picture of Tiffany Brissette's which will drive you crazy. Here we get to see a very different side of Tiffany. Once again she looks ravishingly pretty.
This one happens to be the most recent picture of Tiffany Brissette's available on the internet. Although, she barely looks recognizable here, her charisma is still pretty much intact. It is a real pity that she gave up on her acting career at such as young age and never thought of making a comeback.
This picture is taken from the special 700 Club episode of Thanksgiving 1991 which Tiffany Brissette co-hosted. During the telecast, she also sang "Just Say Yes" in her mellifluous voice.
