The Edison Twins was a Canadian television program which aired on CBC Television from 1982 to 1986; the Disney Channel also picked up the rights in the mid-1980s; 6 seasons were produced by Nelvana.

It starred Andrew Sabiston and Marnie McPhail as Tom and Annie Edison, Sunny Besen Thrasher as their mischievous little brother Paul, and Milan Cheylov as their bumbling friend Lance Howard. The show focused on the adventures of the main cast as they stumbled onto one problem after another, using the science wits of fraternal twins Tom and Annie to solve the situation.

Each episode ends with a short animated sequence illustrating a key scientific principle demonstrated in the preceding live action story.

The last name of 'Edison' is an homage to the inventor Thomas Edison.


  • McPhail spent childhood summers in Portsmouth, Ohio. She was later honored by the people of southern Ohio by signing a star painted upon the floodwall that protects the city of Portsmouth from the Ohio River.
