The 1997 TV adaptation of the 1989 Disney hit of the [[Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids same name.]]

It continued where the first movie left off and follows the misadventures the Szalinski family as Wayne's inventions would usually cause some sort of incident that had to be resolved by the family. Later episodes introduced more and more supernatural elements in an attempt to compete with shows like ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', much to the annoyance of fans of pure science fiction.

Lasted for three seasons with 65 episodes under its belt (as it was a Disney show, that was the allotted number of episodes a show could have back then, despite this show being mostly syndicated). Peter Scolari was also praised for his portrayal of Wayne that some fans prefer him over Creator/RickMoranis.

!!This show provides examples of:

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Wayne, even more so than in the movies.
* AIIsACrapshoot: Happened to F.R.A.N., the home security system Wayne created.
* AlphaBitch: Tiara (played by JewelStaite).
* AlternateContinuity
* AmusingAlien: Ar'Nox and his species.
* AnimatedCreditsOpening: Only in the first season.
* ArtifactTitle: The ShrinkRay was rarely ever used, aside from a 3 storylines and a few cameo uses.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: At the beginning of season 2, Quark, the family dog, eats Wayne's special vegetables and grows into a huge monster. The solution was for the Szalinskis to use the ShrinkRay and bring Quark back down to a smaller size to begin with, making him look more like his movie counterpart.
* BaseballEpisode: Season 2's "Honey, I'm Rooting for the Home Team". Ironically, Nick is playing the sport, despite the fact that in the movie, Wayne clearly says that Nick doesn't play baseball.
* BigBad: Averted, but the closest thing to a Big Bad is Morpheus, the Lord of All Dreams.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: One of these nurses Amy's sprained ankle in "Honey, He's Not Abominable".
* BittersweetEnding: In "Honey, You Drained My Brain", Diane was all nervous about a court case because she fears that she's not smart enough, and used the Thinky Ring to make her seem smarter by sapping intelligence from others. In the end, she loses the case, but everything's back to normal... [[spoiler:except that [[ItMakesSenseInContext Quark is abducted by super-intelligent ants]]]].
* BizarreAlienBiology: Ar'Nox's species eat food ''with their butt'', predating ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' by a few years.
* BizarreAndImprobableGolfGame: Played in one episode.
* CaliforniaDoubling: The TV series was set in Colorado even though in reality, it was shot in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
* CatsAreMean: Averted with Bianca's cat Persephone, who switches minds with Diane in one episode. In Diane's body, Persephone acts playful and naive, and learns English by watching TV at the Szalinskis' house.
* ClipShow: "Honey, It's a Blunderful Life." Wayne gets knocked unconscious and finds himself put on trial by Morpheus to decide if he's worthy of ever waking up again.
* ClothesMakeTheManiac: The Thinky-Ring from "Honey, You Drained My Brain", which turned the wearer into a psychic vampire that grows smarter by draining the intelligence of other people, not to mention addictively evil. Diane went so far as to call the ring her "precious," a reference to ''The Lord of the Rings'' (the novel; this was years before the movie version), and when Nick wore it he dressed up in a black robe and used the shrink ray to enlarge his cranium.
* ContinuityNod: To the first movie only.
** "Honey, She's Like A Fish Out Of Water" acknowledges Amy's SuperDrowningSkills that occurred in the original movie. She fixes that by using an experimental cream Wayne made, unaware that the side effects [[spoiler:turn her into a [[FishPeople rather fish-like mermaid]]]].
* CucumberFacial: Diane and Amy use what they think was facial mask in the beginning of one episode, but was really a concoction Wayne made for peeling coconuts. As the mask [[AteTheSpoon dissolves the wooden spoon]] used for mixing, they scream in horror as they hurry to rinse it off.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Okay, while the original movie had blood in a couple of scenes and one instance of the word "hell" being used, the TV series has a bit more swearing and innuendo.
* [[DeathbringerTheAdorable Deathbwinger The Adorable]]: In "Honey, The Bear Is Bad News", when Wayne is coerced into tweaking the Fwuffy Bear toy, he gives him updates such as voice recognition, and finally downloads everything he programmed into Fwuffy, but unfortunately, the Legion virus was downloaded into Fwuffy along with the data, making him evil.
-->'''Fwuffy''': [[BabyTalk Destwoy! Destwoy!]]
* DenserAndWackier: Compared to the movies, or at least the first movie.
** Seasons 2 and 3 manage to be [[UpToEleven even wackier]].
* DoesNotLikeMagic: Wayne, but he gets better over the course of the series.
* ExcitedKidsShowHost: Wayne's brother Randy is one, with a predilection for fart jokes. Wayne somewhat resents him for presenting science in such a lowbrow fashion.
* FantasticComedy
* FantasticVoyagePlot: The first episode, "Honey, We've Been Swallowed By Grandpa", has Wayne, Diane, and Amy shrunken and ending up in Diane's father's body.
-->'''Diane''': Where are we?
-->'''Wayne''': Your dad's stomach; he drank us.
-->'''Amy''': Funny, I don't ''feel'' drunk.
* FieryRedhead: Amy, in contrast to her blonde counterpart from the movies.
* FunWithAcronyms: F.R.A.N. -- Felon Repel-er and Accident Neutralizer
* GetAholdOfYourselfMan: Wayne does this to Carter in "Honey, The House is Trying to Kill Us", after [[{{Yandere}} F.R.A.N.]] puts him in a box.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: For a Disney show, there was a lot, such as the ColdOpening of "Honey, You're Living In The Past", where Wayne's new invention allowed anyone who used it to remember something from the past, which was shown on a screen, and when Nick uses it, Wayne accidentally punched in the time that was [[{{Squick}} 5 minutes before Nick was born]].
** Season Three's "Honey, We're On TV!" has the in-Universe LeaveItToBeaver pastiche where its kid main character named "Cooter Cleavage."
* GroupHug
* HereWeGoAgain: [[spoiler:The SeriesFinale.]]
* HollywoodHacking: Very blatant in TheTeaser of "Honey, The Bear is Bad News" where Nick's destroying of the Legion computer virus is treated more like a video game. Then there's the virus itself, which is apparently [[InstantAIJustAddWater self-aware]] and immediately adapts to the architecture and programming of a robotic teddy bear.
* HomemadeInventions
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every episode title begins with "Honey".
* IncredibleShrinkingMan
* InstantAIJustAddWater: Wayne built a home security system with self-aware AI. Why? Because he's Wayne Szalinski.
* InterspeciesRomance: In "Honey, I'm in the Mood for Love", the effect of the pheromone that got spilled on Wayne's hypoallergenic chocolates has this happen in two cases:
** Gladys, the helper chimp at Jentech, falls for Wayne after tasting some chocolate.
** Mr. Jennings accidentally steps on a South American Lantern Fly and [[BodyHorror gets fused with its DNA]], and Diane falls for the mutated Jennings after she ingests a piece.
* LogicBomb: Mercilessly skewered in "Honey, The House is Trying to Kill Us." Wayne calls F.R.A.N. out for violating her prime directive, resulting in her violently self-destructing, complete with ExplosiveInstrumentation... and then Wayne calls her on the obvious trick, pointing out that computers sputtering sparks and shutting down after violating their prime directive only happens on cheesy sci-fi shows, before using the opening her fakery offered to shut her down for real.
* LoveDodecahedron: In "Honey, I'm in the Mood for Love", it's caused by a...
* LovePotion: A pheromone accidentally got spilled on Wayne's hypoallergenic chocolates (Diane is allergic, and the chocolates tasted like earwax according to Mr. Jennings), causing those who eat them to fall in love with the first person of the opposite sex they see. [[spoiler:The antidote happens to be vanilla. Just perfectly ordinary vanilla, in any form. Mints, cream soda, whatever.]]
* TheMenInBlack: Somewhat malevolent, often after Ar'Nox. [[spoiler:[[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy Actually aliens responsible for a conspiracy that goes all the way back to the all-seeing eye (the pyramid with the eye on the dollar bill)]].]]
* MesACrowd: In "Honey, I Got Duped", Wayne accidentally clones himself, and the clones are given names such as Slappy and Scabby.
* NothingPersonal: At the end of "Honey, I'm Dreaming... But Am I?", Morpheus reappears to tell Amy this, saying he was only trying to protect his realm.
* ParanormalEpisode: Started popping up quite a bit in season two. Apparently magic and science coexist in this universe.
* PointyHairedBoss: Mr. Jennings.
* PopularHistory: The 1976 visited in "Honey, We're Stuck in the 70's" absolutely reeks of TheSeventies. It looks more like a modern-day '70s-themed party than anything.
* PutOnABus: In "Honey, It's the Ghostest with the Mostest," Mr. Jennings is shown replaced by a relative. He's back in Season 3's "Honey, It's a Billion Dollar Brain."
* ProWrestlingEpisode: "Honey, I'm Wrestling with a Problem... and the Chief"
* {{Retcon}}: Where to start? The Szalinskis originated from Denver rather than Fresno, Amy has red hair, Nick is at least a year younger than in the first movie and plays baseball, Quark is a border collie instead of a terrier (until season 2), and they changed Wayne's brother's name from Gordon to Randy for some reason.
* SequelEpisode: "Honey, It's No Fun Being An Illegal Alien". It even starts with a recap of "Honey, They Call Me The Space Cowboy", stating that Ar'Nox will someday come back when Wayne least expects it.
* SequelHook: At the end of "Honey, It's No Fun Being An Illegal Alien", [[spoiler:the Men in Black want revenge on the Szalinskis]], but the writers never got to make an episode as such since.
* ShowSomeLeg: In "Honey, It's Doomsday", Diane does this to distract a general planning to blow up an asteroid headed toward earth (which Wayne had discovered was inhabited). In "From Honey, with Love", Wayne develops a fez that hypnotizes any onlooker into thinking the wearer is an attractive woman in a negligee.
* {{Slapstick}}
* TakeThat: TheGrimReaper does not like ''Film/MeetJoeBlack'' starring Creator/BradPitt.
* TimeMachine: In addition to the shrink ray, Wayne also has a time machine in the attic that has been used in several episodes.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Several characters would have at least one episode where they do this, but Amy is more prone to this in the show than anyone else.
* VanityLicensePlate: The family car has one reading "PAT PEND".
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: In "From Honey, with Love," secret agent Dalton Pierce contracts Wayne for this very purpose.
* WorthyOpponent: In "Honey, I'm Dreaming... But Am I?", Morpheus admits he is impressed with Amy's abilities in the dreamscape and her passing his test.
* {{Yandere}}: F.R.A.N. becomes obsessed with Wayne, who created her, and was jealous of Diane, so much that [[spoiler:she tries to kill her!]]
