THE CHARMINGS (ABC, 1987-1988) was a short-lived sit-com updating of the
Snow White fairy tale, in which Snow and Prince Charming fell asleep in the
Enchanted Forest and woke up in 20th-century California. Caitlin O'Heaney
(of TALES OF THE GOLD MONKEY) played Snow in the first few episodes. She
was replaced by Carol Huston (later of MATLOCK). Christopher Rich (of REBA)
was the Prince. The series also starred Judy Parfitt (as Queen Lillian), dwarf
Cork Hubbert as Luther (a dwarf, what else?), Paul Winfield as the Mirror,
and Brandon Call and Garette Ratliffe as the Charmings' two children. Dori
Brenner and Paul Eiding were the perplexed neighbors, the Millers. Not a
great show but not terrible, either. I taped a couple of episodes.

This show doesn't sound funny was this produced by Disney.I be really surprise if this ever came out on DVD when plenty haven't or finished their complete series.

I personally loved this series. Have watched my full series tapes a number of times and I'm also hoping it comes out on dvd someday. If even shorter, lesser-known series can be released these days why not The Charmings? :)

I remember this show vaguely. I remember Chris Rich (from Another World and Reba) being on the show, and Brandon Call (Step By Step) was one of the children. Mainly I remember Paul Winfield as the Magic Mirror...and he had some of the best lines. :lol:

Yup, I think this show deserved a longer run. It was kind of sharp and biting in its satire and I loved the bickering between the mirror and the queen. :)
