The Brady Bunch was a smash hit with NINE characters. And, ironically, in the later seasons of FOL, the show was ADDING characters, so go figure.
We are going too miss CHARLOTTE RAE SHES THE BEST IN DIFFRENT STROKES AND THE FACTS OF LIFE REST IN PEACE
I use to wish I was an Eastland girl.
It's not Facts of Life without Jo.
This isn't the pilot opening the episode featured the cast of Diff'rent Strokes their names rolled in the opening credits.
Dana Plato really got skewed over, the only episodes she in on this show are the ones Gary Coleman makes appearances, her fucking character attended this school and there are a lot of episodes of Different Strokes where Dana's character Kimberly isn't on this show and they explain her away by saying she's away at Eastland. I always felt that every episode she wasn't in on Different Stokes, she should've been on the Fact of Life. You've seen Arnold at Eastland more then you've seen Kimberly. I think the show would've been more interesting if they had explored the relationship between Miss Garrett and Kimberly Drummond...
King Mojo in the Brazilian dubbing it’s said she’s studying in Europe🤔
This was not the pilot (that was actually a Different Strokes episode entitled "The Girls' School", and some of the girls did not even appear in that one). What is shown here is not even the first episode, as the opening credits do not feature Jenny O'Hara, who played the teacher Miss Mahoney.
R.I.P Charlotte Rae we are going miss you
i like season 2 song better
i like the theme i the first season most with Charlotte singing, Ive met 4 girls from the show, Lisa, Nancy, Kim and Molly
kind of an odd show about a bunch of rich brats living at boarding school. I saw myself in this show as Jo and always had a Blair in my life. Ms Garret looks like the fairy godmother in sindoorella
I liked Charlotte Rae's high falsettos at the end.
It's so sad how this brilliant show went out, fer SHURR, because it was like Mrs. Garrett and / or the actress who portrayed her became more and more of a cantankerous, grouchy BLEEP (What I'd like to know is weather or not the ACTRESS was becoming so grumpy that they had to work her attitude into that of her character...) , so that she wasn't even the least bit FUN anymore...Sad...just sad, because she was one of the coolest characters when the show began!
Peppermint Snowdrift it's whether not weather that only pertains to the climate outside. Good grief! Every adult or anyone past 5th grade should know the difference.
that is my favorite theme!!
It was much funnier with seven girls and Mr. Bradley. Poor ratings equal salary cuts. 13 episodes was never a fair barometer for success.
Holy Cow o
Unfortunately those girls who were shafted each only appeared in a handful of episodes. I believe just four, the Nancy character was in six and Molly only appear in one. Best decision Molly made was not going back. In an interview, the Nancy character, and Sue Ann character were very disappointed in the downsizing. The show was surprisingly not sophisticated enough for a mostly teenage audience. 13 episodes, scattered around different dates and times, late summer replacement never gave season one a chance.
I love season 1, but overall I'm glad they made the changes they did. Jo is a really great character, and the other girls still attended the school and made appearances, they just lived in the dorms while the main four lived with Mrs. Garrett, so it wasn't like those characters were completely given the shaft.
This first season was special so sad 😢 only 13 episodes together. And the girls fired just too cute especially my favorite Julie Anne Haddock aka Cindy Webster..
This is NOT the pilot episode! The pilot was actually called 'Garrett's Girls' and feature Geri Reischl, not Lisa Welchel, as Blair Warner. The first episode broadcast of a show isn't always the "pilot" episode!
What are you guys talking about: Lisa Wheelchel (as BLAIR) was definitely on the pilot and you can see her being rude to MRS G while smoking cigars & playing music lol! (She is actually the one who made the show!)
Micahcareyfilms how do you know that lisa wheelchel was not in the facts of life pilot that another eActress played Blair
Minahcareyfilms how do you know that on the pilot of the facts of life was called garrets girls and that lisa welchel was not in the pilot but another actress was playing Blair warner
While the theme song is the one used in the first season, the opening is the one used when the show returned to the schedule in the spring of 1980 to finish the first season. The first 4 episodes, which aired in the summer of 1979, had the same song but different visuals.
But what about Diff'rent Strokes - Season 1 Episode 24 in which it was the first appearance of Garret's Girls school, in which Blair was played by Lisa Welchel.
does anyone remember what other diffrnt strokes character was suppose to be a regular on facts of life but wasnt?
Being apart of the Facts cast would've geared her more in the right direction and developed her character even more. I heard even off the set Charlotte Rae was like a mother figure and very no nonsense and had a tight reign on the girls and all of the girls grew up to be outstanding adults.It seems as if the Diffrent Strokes cast was given way too much freedom and leeway and they were spoiled.
I am not sure Dana was supposed to be part of the Facts of Life cast. We (the viewer) DO know that Kimberly is/was a student at Eastland and thats the only connection aside from Mrs. Garrett going to the school to begin this show.
Dana Plato (Kimberly Drummond) was supposed to be added to this show but remained on Diff'rent Strokes.
What happened to most of these girls! this seems funnier that the real show with just four of them
there were too many girls. they cut back for season 2.
I followed the link to your video, thanks for the info on them.
I like Julie Anne Haddock and Julie Piekarski, too. According to this video: watch?v=y72fTKZTWk4 Julie Anne went into fundraising for non-profits. Julie Piekarski was the entertainment reporter for KPLR-TV in St. Louis for a few years. They're both married now.
i was just thinking that the other day watching it
My faves were julie anne haddock and Julie Piekarski. Where are they now?
Hard to believe that Blair will be 50 next year.
I'm watchin this right now on the hub you know what's funny you never see roger Nancy's boyfriend they always spoke on the phone only he was invisible like the gooch on the Different strokes lol
And i don't mean like a man literally (just to clear that up)
Cindy was one hot tomboy man :)
The there was an episode when a Japanese girl went the Eastland school. Her name in the show was Meko
@sierria64 I knew that. Someone fought with me about it too. Please instead of the FACTS OF LIFE. GET A LIFE.
I REMEMBER THIS AS A KID ... I FORGOT MOLLY WAS ON THIS
Molly my girl "Sixteen Candles" The days. 💪
Another thing that I miss about my childhood.American tv shows always had those cheesie freeze frames.
tootie in a trainer!
