Trivia for the TV Show Facts of LifeDuring the last season of Facts Of Life, David Spade was in an episode that was supposed to be spun-off into a series called "Big Apple Blues" about college roommates living in New York City, but it never happened.
The original idea for Facts Of Life was that Edna Garrett, (the housekeeper on "Diff'rent Strokes"), would become the headmistress at the school that Kimberly Drummond (Dana Plato) attended. But after the pilot was shot, the producers decided to keep Plato on "Diff'rent Strokes".
On November 18, 2001, ABC aired The Facts of Life Reunion, in which Mrs. Garrett, Natalie, Blair and Tootie reunite.
The Facts of Life theme song was written by Alan Thicke, Gloria Loring and Al Burton and sung by Charlotte Rae (Season 1) and Gloria Loring (Seasons 2-9).

A Heads-Up to TV Land
Hey TV Land- those of us who grew up in the 80's would love it if you'd start showing episodes of "Facts of Life". We've seen enough of I Love Lucy and Mister Ed...we Gen X'rs want our 80's fix!!

a new line-up
All of us Gen-X need to come together and bring back our hit shows. The "Facts of Life" should be the number one series to come back. If it wasn't one of the greatest why was it such a big hit for so many years. It's time to put Leave it to Beaver, The Munster back in it's vault and bring out the late 70's to the 80's. Thank You.

It would be awesome if you could put it back on the air. It would be even more awesome is you could put it back on with Jo as the star, and she has a family of her own. And it could be written by Clarinda Bergen.

Facts of Life series
One of the best series for young people to watch. The story line, the moral of that was remembered forever. This program could be emulated by todays writers to provide decent, smart programing that all ages would enjoy. Bring it back!!!!!!! In the meantime, where can we buy the whole series?
