Little Miss Shopping Mall1st Aired Week of 2/7/87

The Lawsons take up the Brindles' snobby challenge and enter Vicki in a mall pageant against Harriet.

This was a fun episode that showcased Brissette's real-life pageant winning talents as she plays a caramel-dipped fiery flamenco. To some her looks and performance appeared a little too “sexy for her age” (nearly 11, she was the size of most 8-year-olds) and for the producers' taste, so she never played anything this seductive again. Notable: Brissette actually lip-syncs with an aria soloist offstage and it wasn't dubbed. This was the only episode without Jamie, due to Jerry Supiran's illness.
