Lime Street is an Action-Adventure drama series starring Robert Wagner that aired on ABC during the 1985 television season. It starred child peace activist and budding actress Samantha Reed Smith as Elizabeth, the elder daughter of Wagner's character, and Maia Brewton as her younger sister, Margaret Ann.

This series provides examples of the following tropes:

  • The '80s: Characteristics of the decade are very visible in the styling of the sisters and the female guest stars. Samantha Smith's updo and blue satin dress in "The Mystery of Flight 401" are particularly noteworthy.
  • Character Outlives Actor: Had the series continued, Samantha Smith's Elizabeth would have lived on off-screen in Paris.
  • Non-Actor Vehicle: The series is largely remembered for starring Samantha Reed Smith, the child peace activist who became known as "America's Youngest Ambassador" for building bridges with the Soviet Union.
