Smart Guy was a 30 minute dramatic comedy series on the WB Network (later becoming the CW Network) about a 10-year-old genius who gets to skip six years of education to attend high school. It concentrates on his problems with the jealousy of and consequent lousy treatment from his classmates and siblings.

Smart Guy Trivia
T.J.'s older brother and sister had to deal with having their much younger brother attending their school. His sister Yvette was very smart and studious didn't really seem to mind. On the other hand, his brother Marcus was a "so-so" student and wanted to be with the "In" crowd wasn't too happy about the situation.
The sets for the school and the Henderson's home on the first episode of Smart Guy were the same sets used on the series, "Boy Meets World".
Marcus and T.J. bonded a bit towards the end of 1998 when they formed a band called, "Mackadocious". Marcus was the lead singer, T.J. was on keyboard, and Mo played bass guitar.
Smart Guy was nominated for seven miscellaneous awards but, unfortunately, didn't win any. Most of them were for excellent performances by Tahj Mowry. One of the awards won by the series itself was a "Young Artist Awar" in 1999 for "Best Family TV Comedy Series" but "The Hughleys" won that one.
T.J. eventually became the high school's mascot as he was the only student small enough to fit in the penguin costume.
Tahj Mowry is the younger brother of Tia and Tamera Mowry who (among other credits) starred together on the series, "Sister, Sister".
