Smart Guy is an American sitcom centering on the exploits of child genius T. Henderson (Tahj Mowry), who moves from being an elementary school student in the fourth grade to a high school student in the tenth grade, attending the same school as his two elder siblings Yvette and Marcus. exhibits exceptional intelligence with an IQ of 180, knows several different languages and has a photographic memory.

Created by Danny Kallis, the series ran for three seasons on The WB from April 2, 1997 to May 16, 1999. Henderson (whose full first and middle name were never revealed) is the youngest child in his family, portrayed as 10 to 11 years old in seasons 1 and 2, and 12 in season 3. He skips six grades from fourth to tenth grade due to his intelligence, after his teachers at his previous school discovered that T. was not feeling challenged enough by a fourth grade curriculum. Mo is discovered to be an excellent chef, due to the tutelage of Yvette (who helped him learn how to cook after Mo signed up for a cooking class on the spur of the moment – simply because the class was cooking bacon at the time), he plays bass guitar in Marcus' band Mackadocious, and is also a (semi-)talented barber.

Episodes in which her character dates a fellow Piedmont High student feature Yvette sometimes overthinking the relationship, such as when she dated a dimwitted swimmer whom she had mainly a physical attraction to in the episode "Big Picture" or when high school senior Yvette dated a sophomore in the episode "T. Played by John Marshall Jones, the character of Floyd Henderson is a widower and the single-father of sons T. After the loss of his wife, he would eventually start dating once again: such as in season two's "Dateline", when T. sets Floyd up with a woman named Jamie (Jackie Mari Roberts) through an online dating service, whom T. eventually gets jealous of after Floyd spends less time with him; and in the season three episode "Beating is Fundamental", when he dates a woman whose son T. dislikes (and later punches), though many of the women that he is seen dating in the series are usually not seen for more than one episode.

He is frequently a comic foil to most of the main characters, including T. He also gives good moral advice to all of his children (and sometimes even to Mo).

He is a fairly popular student at Piedmont High and reacts remarkably well to his younger brother sharing nearly every one of his classes, although tensions do arise from time to time (this is especially true in the pilot episode, to the point where he tells T. that he wishes that his younger brother would disappear from his life).

You can turn that around by making HER have to win your approval and YOUR affection.
