Trivia

One of the favorite plot devices is to send children away to boarding school or out of town to live with former characters only to have them return a short time later as teenagers. Among those involved in this type of plotting were Victoria Newman (age 10 returned a year later as an 18-year-old), Nick Newman, Billy Abbott, Lily Winters, Noah Newman, and Abby Newman/Abbott.
Jeanne Cooper who plays Katherine Chancellor is the only member of the cast who has been with the show since it first premiered in 1973 - although she didn't join in until 6 months after it premiered.

In 1976, ABC's "Wide World of Sports" used "Cotton's Dream", the theme song of "The Young and the Restless", as a musical background for a montage of Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci in action at the 1976 Olympics. Although Nadia never actually performed to this tune, it became associated with her; eventually, the song's writer officially renamed it "Nadia's Theme".
