'Smart Guy' is a sitcom that aired for three seasons from 1997 to 1999. The show is about the misadventures of kid genius T.J. Henderson, who skips elementary school and moves up to high school. He must adjust to life with older but not necessarily wiser high school teenagers - including his brother Marcus.
At last, this hilarious sitcom is available to own on a DVD set containing every episode of Smart Guy ever made!
T.J., played by Tahj Mowry, is the title character and the youngest child in his family. He's 10 years old in seasons 1 and 2, and, as the title suggests, is smart, with an I.Q. of 180.
He skipped from 4th grade to 10th, knows several different languages and has a photographic memory. Outside of the occasional moments of awkwardness that are bound to occur when a child interacts with high schoolers, T.J. has a peaceable existence in the school, and is eager to be involved in school functions.
So much so, that he becomes the mascot for his school basketball team, which leads to bullying. He spends a fair amount of time at school with his older brother, Marcus, and Mo, Marcus' best friend. Although they have some tense moments, it is obvious that the two brothers care for each other deeply. T.J. plays keyboard for Marcus's band in several episodes after the other member broke his finger from an accident.
