We can't solve problems of the human race, but if you want to have fun, this is the place!" CHARLIE: "During the next 30 minutes, these three children will entertain and surprise you with their unrehearsed reactions, as we present, NIPSEY RUSSELL'S JUVENILE JURY!

Juvenile Jury was the program for kids where a panel of five kids solve people's problems.


The Juvenile Jury was a panel of five young children 10 and below. They were presented problems sent in by the studio audience and/or home viewers (usually they were problems of other kids). Occasionally, celebrity guests would come by and present problems of their own.
