Regarding your trivia.....are you sure Missy Gold was on Growing Pains? I know her sister Traci starred in it but don\'t recall ever seeing Missy.

Missy Gold Wasn't In Growing Pains
Jeffspreecur comments are right on the money. It was her older sister, Tracey Gold, who was in Growing Pains. Missy didn't even guest star in the series.

Although Tracey Gold did guest star in an episode of Benson
Maybe that was the intention of the trivia item. The names were just mixed up.

My 2nd Favorite Show of All-Time
In 1984 I organized a letter-writing campaign to ABC to request that Benson not be cancelled. (This was, of course, before the Internet.)
I got over one-hundred people to write in, yet all I received for my trouble was a form card thanking me for my input.
The show did air one additional season (1985-1986)!

Traci Gold did appear on Benson at least once, although I don't recall any more times (but there could have been). Missy was in pretty much every episode, so the trivia item obviously referred to Traci.
