Day-O is a 1992 American made-for-television fantasy-comedy film about an imaginary childhood friend, "Dayo", played by Elijah Wood, of a woman played by Delta Burke.[1] The film aired on NBC as a presentation of Disney Night at the Movies on May 3, 1992.


The return of an imaginary childhood friend, Dayo, helps a woman named Grace Connors through various crises, Grace struggles against her timidity to save her grandfather's restaurant. The arrival of her imaginary childhood friend spurs her on to success.



Carole Kucharewicz of Variety magazine wrote: "Acharming, well-done telepic revolving around a frazzled Delta Burke, "Dayo" is full of Disney "magic" and above-average performances. Telefilm is enjoyable for adults who want some escape from "60 Minutes," but it's doubtful if children will glean much from the well-written script."[2]
