Plot change

The show is about the Duncan family, which is made up of Teddy, PJ, Gabe, Bob, Amy and Charlie Duncan. In each episode, Teddy records a video diary about her everyday life; it also gives advice to Charlie for when she grows up. At the end of the diary Teddy states the show's name (Good Luck Charlie) after a problem or situation happens or is solved. However, the original idea of "Good Luck Charlie" was "Love Teddy".[5]
