The Mowry siblings definitely made '90s kids laugh out loud from the mid-to-late '90s. "Sister, Sister" premiered in 1994 and lasted for six seasons until 1999. Tia and Tamera Mowry gave Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen—of "Full House" fame—a run for their money as America's favorite twins. But Tia and Tamera weren't the only Mowry siblings who became TV stars in the '90s, but their little brother Tahj became a breakout TV idol in his own right starting on "Full House" before leading "Smart Guy." "Smart Guy" only lasted for three seasons, but the sitcom definitely had an impact on '90s pop culture and even featured a young Destiny's Child. Which Mowry sitcom remains your favorite?

Below is the synopsis of "Sister, Sister," per Rotten Tomatoes.

Twin sisters Tia and Tamera were separated at birth, then reunited under one roof 12 years later. The girls clicked immediately despite very different personalities: Tia was studious and low-key, while the outgoing Tamera's favorite subject seemed to be boys. The high-energy sitcom moved in the fall of 1995 from ABC to the WB, where it ran until May 1999.

"Sister, Sister" was the epitome of '90s teen culture and remained a hit in reruns on Disney Channel. Tia and Tamera are proof that there's no chemistry like the chemistry of twin sisters. That's why they acted together again in Disney Channel's original movies "Seventeen Again," "Twitches" and "Twitches Too."

The sitcom featured an array of hilarious character: bookworm Tia, party animal Tamera, annoying next door neighbor Roger ("Go home Roger!"), Tamera's uptight and strict father Ray, and Tia's impulsive, but loving mother Lisa. 

Millennials cross your fingers because there's talk about a revival.

Below is the synopsis of "Smart Guy," per Rotten Tomatoes.

A 10-year-old prodigy named T.J. Henderson makes the leap from fourth grade to high-school sophomore and finds the social adjustment far tougher than the academic one.

There's no denying Tahj's adorableness on "Smart Guy," but the boy genius character was got himself into some hilarious situations. Like any kid, he was involved in some misadventures, but the difference being his adventures involved him trying to fit into high school alongside his older siblings Marcus and Yvette, and his brother's friend Mo. 

Though "Smart Guy" only lasted for three seasons and is underrated compared to "Sister Sister," the sitcom will forever be cemented into both '90s kids and teens popular culture. Like who doesn't remember that iconic Destiny's Child episode?!

And let's not forget that this was the '90s and a sitcom featuring a 10-year-old Black boy genius was quite progressive too. There may not be any talks to revive "Smart Guy"—showing T.J. all grown up and how being a boy genius impacted his life—but here's hoping for another crossover episode if "Sister, Sister" actually gets revived.

Fun fact: Tahj played three different characters on "Sister, Sister" including T.J. Henderson on a "Smart Guy" crossover.
