It Was a Thing on TV: Episode 185 – The New Adventures of Beans Baxter

This week on It Was a Thing on TV if you think you know a lot about Early FOX in the Late 1980’s then you don’t know beans. 

If you thought a high schooler couldn’t also double as a secret agent trying to find his father, you don’t know Beans.  Come for the Beans, stay for the plethora of references to HBO’s Encyclopedia Brown from the early 90s and the clip from Mac & Me.
