Jerry Supiran -- the guy who played V.I.C.I.'s wholesome brother Jamie Lawson on the classic sitcom "Small Wonder" -- says he's ready to be famous again ... and now he's officially campaigning for a spot on the next season of "Dancing with the Stars."
 
Jerry ... (how do we put this delicately?) ... has "changed" a lot since his younger days after falling on some pretty hard times.

In fact, Supiran says he spent time living in a homeless shelter after a stripper ex-girlfriend stole his trust fund money. 

But now, at 39 years old ... and after various restaurant jobs ... Supiran tells TMZ he wants to make a TV comeback and thinks he would be a perfect fit for "Dancing."

"I'm hoping there will still be interest since people are all about nostalgia these days ... hopefully producers will give me a chance."

Supiran says he hasn't heard back from the show ... yet ... but if he does make it, he's GOTTA DO THE ROBOT!!!!!!

They were the cutest kids on tv. Just adorable. I remember watching it when I was little but I couldn't tell you any scenes. Maybe I was too little but I remember the kids
