The show involves the Chesterfields, a wealthy family who, after a "mix-up at the adoption agency", adopt three new house-guests: Charlotte, a pyromaniac; Shawn, a drunken hobo; and Jimmy, an investment banker with a growth-related disease, starring Claude Maginot, a wealthy, classically-trained actor, as the trio's foster father. Amy Sheckenhausen, the host of the radio station K-Chat, is a fan of show, and during her interview with Maginot, brings up his and Jimmy's role in the show.
By 1992, the show has been canceled and replaced by My Five Uncles. During a radio interview on WCTR News in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that plays a while after unlocking Las Venturas, Jimmy is featured being arrested after being found with drugs during a child-actor conference he was attending at the Four Dragons Casino in Las Venturas. He appears to still look like a child, even though he is now 51, and still maintains the rude attitude he had on the show. Annoyed by Richard Burns' interview, he beats him up and steals his microphone, imitating him in the process.
On the Rockstar Games teaser website, Kent Paul's 80s Nostalgia Zone, in the Television section, Kent Paul talks about the show, although Paul's description of the show is unreliable due to the fact he was not paying much attention, such as the part in which he refers to Jimmy as a 35-year-old bond trader, when he actually was a 42-year-old investment banker. Also, it stars the Chesterfields, not the Dawkins. These errors are pointed out by contributor Jeff Johnson.
- The show's logo and title is a homage to the real-life 1980s sitcom, Just the Ten of Us. The adoptive father being wealthy may also be a parody of the sitcom 1970s-1980s sitcom Diff'rent Strokes.
- Jimmy, with his growth-related disease and his childlike look, is an obvious reference to Gary Coleman and his Arnold Jackson character from Diff'rent Strokes.
- It may also be a reference to the 1981 R&B song "Just the Two of Us" by Grover Washington, Jr. and Bill Withers.
- By 2013, during the events of Grand Theft Auto V, a Weazel News headline (during Jay Norris' presentation) reports that in Vice City, one of the show's stars overdosed on cocaine. It is also mentioned that Frank Mathers was the TV producer behind this show in the HD Universe.
