An inventor accidentally shrinks his own and his next door neighbor’s children to a quarter of an inch with his electromagnetic shrinking machine and accidentally throws them out with the trash, where they must venture into their backyard to return home while fending off insects and negotiating hazards.
Wayne Szalinski is a preoccupied inventor who just can't seem to get his electromagnetic shrinking machine to work. But when he accidentally shrinks his kids down to 1/4-inch tall and tosses them out in the trash, the real adventure begins. The kids face incredible dangers as they try to make their way home through the jungle of their own backyard. Hurricane sprinklers! Dive-bombing bees! A runaway lawn mower... and much much more!
The Szalinski family is back, this time hilarious disaster strikes when an experiment causes their new toddler son to grow many stories tall.
Eight years after the events of the Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, ten-year-old Adam just wants to be a normal boy and go to baseball camp. However, his interest in sports seems almost alien to Wayne and Diane, as Amy and Nick, who are currently living away from home, were a Actor and genius, respectively. Wayne has started his own lab, Szalinski Labs, with his brother, Gordon, and they receive tickets to witness a shuttle landing, but Diane interrupts Wayne's message, reminding him that he needs to watch Adam and his cousins, Jenny and Mitch, while she and Patti go on vacation. She also reminds him to get rid of the Tiki Man that she sees as an eyesore, though he considers it a good luck charm (not to mention something that could earn him a fortune one day).
Wayne Szalinski, the show's protagonist, is the husband of Diane and the father of Amy and Nick. The well-meaning Wayne constructs a variety of inventions, including the Shrink-Ray, Neuron Nudger and Brainiactivator among others, that create predicaments for his family. His wife, Diane Szalinski (Barbara Alyn Woods), is a lawyer. Diane supports Wayne and is very loving, but gets fed up with his antics. Amy Szalinski (Hillary Tuck) is the only daughter of the Szalinski's. She displays normal teenage angst, but comes to love her family more than anything else. Her younger brother, Nick (Thomas Dekker), is very much like his father. Nick likes to invent things and even looks like Wayne. He and Amy generally get along with each other.
