Life as seen through the eyes of a sassy and adventure-
some 13-year-old, '90s style. Though the youngest of the
three Russo children, Blossom was mature way beyond her
years. Her family was distressingly modern: dad was divorced,
eldest brother Anthony, a recovering Alcoholic, and Joey, a
teenage Lothario. In an early episode Nick, her studio musician
dad, was served with final divorce papers which the kids tried
to keep from him--hardly the sort of comic situation viewers
would have seen in the 1950s! Joining the family in Fall 1991
was Grandpa Buzz, a man undergoing a delayed midlife crisis.
Blossom herself was not the prettiest girl on the block. She
dealt with life and the fracturing of her family partly through
spunk, and partly through fantasies in which she got hilarious
advice from celebrities including Phil Donahue, Little Richard,
Sonny Bono, and ALF. Her thoughts were related each day to
her "video diary." Six was her teenage best friend and Vinnie
her hip, streetwise boyfriend. Rhonda was Anthony's girlfriend
for a season. During the 1993-1994 season Anthony, who
worked as a paramedic, began dating a black girl named Shelly,
whom he eventually married and they had a baby, Nash, born
during the November 1994 ratings period. For a time they
lived in a garage apartment, but in March 1995 they moved
back east. Close on the heels of the marriage of his oldest son,
Nick began seeing a British woman named Carol. They were
married in the fall of 1994, whereupon the household gained a
new youngster in Carol's six-year-old daughter, Kennedy.
In the series finale, dumb Joey abruptly proposed to girlfriend
Melanie, who said yes. Carol announced she was pregnant,
and Nick arranged to sell the house so that he and Carol
could move into a place of their own. Blossom, seeing the
family as she knew it coming to an end, at first tried to
sabotage the deal, but realized it was about "moving on."
