  • Summary: Silver Spoons started as a series built around the idea of Ricky Stratton teaching his father Edward to grow up while Edward taught Ricky to be a kid. In the series opening twelve-year-old Ricky arrives at his unsuspecting father's mansion to introduce himself and move in. His mother Evelyn had placed him in military school after she remarried and thought Ricky would be in the way. Edward Stratton III was the epitome of the words "overgrown child" never having taken responsibility for anything in his lifetime. His lifestyle was that of a ten-year-old going as far as having video games and a scale freight train in the livingroom. Needless to say, he was surprised to discover that his seven day marriage to Evelyn Bluedhorn had produced a son. After originally sending Ricky back to boarding school, Edward changed his mind and brought his son home.

    Throughout the five years Silver Spoons, many changes occurred in the Stratton household. Ricky became a carefree, fun loving teenager while Edward became a responsible, loving father and husband. Edward courted and married his personal assistant, Kate Summers, and she provided them both with a loving, stable environment. The shows were filled with quality family entertainment while sharing messages about values, morals, the problems of growing up in the 1980s, along with a few very touching moments.

    The series success can be attributed to its very talented cast. Ricky Schroder was still riding high on the fame gained from his appearance in The Champ for which he won a Golden Globe Award. Erin Gray was and still is remembered for her role as Colonel Wilma Deering in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and Joel Higgins had just finished Best of the West the season before. With guest stars that included Joey Lawrence, Matthew Perry, Sharon Stone, Sydney Penny, Mr. T, Gary Coleman, Whitney Houston, and the legendary actors John Houseman and Ray Walston, Silver Spoons ended with thousands of fans reaching from Canada to New Zealand and everywhere in between.

    TV Theme Song: "Together"
    sang by Bob Wirth and Rick Howard


    Here we are face to face
    A couple of silver spoons
    We're hoping to find
    We're two of a kind
    Making a go, making it grow

    Together, we're going to find our way
    Together, taking the time each day
    To learn all about those things you just can't buy

    Two silver spoons together
    You and I together
    (We're going to find our way)
    You and I together
    (We're going to find our way)
    You and I together
