Introduction

Blossom is an American sitcom that aired for five seasons on NBC. It debuted as a pilot preview on July 5, 1990, and premiered as a mid-season replacement on January 3, 1991, and aired until May 22, 1995. Don Reo created the series, which starred Mayim Bialik as Blossom Russo, a teenager living with her father and two elder brothers. It was produced by Reo's Impact Zone Productions and Witt/Thomas Productions in association with Touchstone Television.

Brazilian Airing

In Brazil, it aired both daily and weekly for four years on the open-air TV channel, SBT. After the series was withdrawn in February 2001, it returned to the air in May 2002. It aired at 1:00 pm on Saturdays, until the transmission was interrupted by polictal obligatory advertising that occurs near elections in August 2002.

In 2004, the series began to be shown again by SBT at 5:30 pm. However, it was taken off the air again and El Chavo del Ocho got its place. It returned to the air again in June 2005 at 5:30 am, and stopped airing in March 2006, replaced by the series Clube do Chaves (brazilian name for 1990s season of El Chavo). Since then, it never aired again in any TV station or streaming service in the country.

Missing Episodes

Of all five seasons, only the first four can be found on the internet, and the first episode of the fifth season.

Weirdly enough, episode S02E19, 'Wake up, Little Susie', is missing. It is unknown if this episode actually aired in Brazil, since it is a crossover with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, with a cameo from Karyn Parsons, playing Hilary Banks from the aforementioned show.

Trivia

Since both shows aired in Brazil around the same time and both were dubbed in Rio de Janeiro, there's a chance that Karyn Parsons was dubbed by the same voice actress, Guilene Conte.
