Season four of the ABC Afterschool Special series gets under way with this sensitive, and sometimes hilarious, story of puppy love. Alfred Lutter stars as Eric, a moony-eyed 13-year-old who develops a crush on Lisa (Vicki Dawson), a popular and somewhat stuck-up cheerleader. Eric spends most of the story trying all manner of methods (from spray-painting to dancing the "bump") in hopes of impressing the girl -- or, at least, to get her to notice him. Alas, our hero fails to utilize the most effective strategy of all: simply to be himself. And, of course, he also fails to notice that there's another girl in school who has been the "right one" all along!
