Growing Pains Appreciation #9 - Don't waste another minute on your cryin

Growing Pains Appreciation Thread


Summary
The show's premise is based around the fictional Seaver family, who reside on Long Island, New York. Dr. Jason Seaver (Alan Thicke), a psychiatrist, works from home because his wife, Maggie Malone (Joanna Kerns), has gone back to work as a reporter. Jason has to take care of the kids: troublemaker Mike (Kirk Cameron), honors student Carol (Tracey Gold), and rambunctious Ben (Jeremy Miller). From 1988 on, Chrissy Seaver became a part of the family. She was played in her infant stage by twins Kristen and Kelsey Dohring (who alternated in the role). Beginning in the fall of 1990, Chrissy's character's age was advanced to six years old, whereupon Ashley Johnson took over the role. The show was relevant in the mid-1980s, as women going to work was becoming more and more common, as were stay-at-home dads.

Thanks Barry. It must have been a smart person's idea.

Hehe!

I bet it was fun for the cast to film that ep where Chrissy wanted to stay up late. They got to act silly and play with toys.

Of course it gave Chrissy more reason to pout. That was annoying.

I didn't like Chrissy too much. Well, I didn't mind her as a baby.

I just wrote it down to add to my TV show list. The episode that I saw was ok but it has been awhile since I have seen that episode.
