whizkids2Richie (Matthew Labyorteaux from Little House On The Prairie), Ham (Todd Porter), Jeremy (Jeffrey Jacquet) and Alice (Andrea Elson) are teenagers living outside Los Angeles.

They are also computer hackers (with a talking computer called RALF and what looks like $20,000 worth of high-tech gadgetry in Richie’s attic clubhouse) who work as amateur detectives in their spare time.

Llewellen Farley (Max Gail) is a reporter who is a source for the kids and sometimes asks them for help on stories he is writing. His brother-in-law is Lieutenant Quinn (A Martinez) who also provides the kids with help.

Richie was always threatening his 7-year-old sister, Cheryl (Melanie Gaffin) that he would burn her dolls or stuff her in a coffin.
