Stick With Me Kid

One of my favorite TV experiences was my time as a writer/producer on an obscure little detective series called STICK WITH ME KID back in the early ’90s. It was created by Peter Jay Hume and executive produced by Daniel Petrie Jr, two of the nicest and most talented writers I’ve ever worked with, and was shot in London for Disney. The show was about a teenage, deductive genuis who is brilliant at solving crimes…but no one will take him seriously…so he convinces a pompous, out-of-work actor to be his “front,” the great detective Grant Logan. The series aired in Europe but, as far as I know, never aired in the United States. Now someone has posted beautiful transfers of most of the episodes on YouTube. Take a look at them now before the studio finds out and has them pulled. They are great fun…but ignore the summaries, they contain huge spoilers.

  1. looks like it was fun but aimed at the younger crowed , maybe why it was never aired in North America , still ashame think the young adults would of enjoyed it.

  2. Wasn’t Leigh Lawson the guy who was married to Twiggy?

    Now that this series is (almost) twenty years old, I suppose we can rule out a belated DVD release …

      • Just back from IMDb.

        Best info: Twiggy and Leigh Lawson are still married.
        Have been since 1988.

        And I just found out that Twiggy is about one year older than I am.
        In September, she’ll be 67.
        (And Leigh Lawson is now 71.)

  3. We watched this tv series at 1994 in Spain and we enjoyed it very much. It was called The little detective and became a cult show between some young-at- that-time spanish tv fans.

    A very good series, well played, well written, well adapted and well shooted.

    We still manage to rewatch the episodes from time to time and it keeps being funny and very pleasant despite the passing of time.

    Thank you for contributing to this little piece of art and joy.
