Child stars in pop culture are like pet alligators. They're cute when young, but they often get flushed before they grow big.

VH1 counts down the top kid stars of the past two decades in the five-part special "100 Greatest Kid Stars," a nostalgic look back at the biggest names in TV, music and entertainment who burst onto the scene as kids. Hosted by Catherine Reitman -- daughter of "Ghostbusters" director Ivan Reitman and once a child actress herself -- the special includes old and new interviews and early performance footage from when the stars were kids.

The countdown begins Thursday, Nov. 29, and concludes Sunday, Dec. 2.

It includes such recent stars as Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and Dakota Fanning as well as Candace Cameron, Michelle Williams, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna Paquin and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who grew up on-screen during the '90s. It's also a nostalgic look back at the shows »
