Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Made for television, Return of Hickey is the sequel to 1987's The Prodigious Mr. William Hicks. Both films were based on Owen Johnson's turn-of-the-century "Lawrenceville Stories." Zach Galligan returns as William "Hickey" Hicks, prep-school prankster supreme. Back at Lawrenceville after a period of suspension, Hickey intends to resume his agenda of elaborate practical jokes. This time, however, he is challenged by a imaginative new student (Nicholas Rowe), who has vowed to out-Hickey Hickey. Return of Hickey was originally telecast February 3, 1988, on PBS' American Playhouse.
