Broadcast in 1992 in its initial run, the syndicated soap opera was aimed at the pre-teen and teen market who, it was hoped, would also shell out their allowance and baby-sitting bucks for the line of dolls based on the characters. Swans Crossing revolved around the lives of middle-school students living in a wealthy East Coast town (which gave the show its name). Chief among them w
