Jennifer Love Hewitt was not the original actress cast as Robin. Partway through the filming of the 1989 season, the original actress was released and Hewitt was given the role (perhaps explaining why she was one of the few characters to not share their name with the actor playing the role.)

Yeah I remember the show some anyway. I do sort of remember watching it on Saturdays or in syndication or something back in the mid 80s, then later seeing it on the Disney Channel previews. (How long did Kids Inc. run, a decade?)
I remember those corny kids and their pop songs, especially the boy who called himself "The Kid"...and who I thought was the person Michael Jackson was referring to in the 1983 song 'Billie Jean'. You know the lyric: "...She said I am the one, but 'The Kid' is not my son..." (although 'The Kid' seemed to act like he was, Jacko. lol)
Anyway what happened to some of the kids after the show? I know Jennifer Love Hewitt went on to 'Party of Five' and other teen/young adult movies, etc. Stacy went on to pop trio 'Wild Orchid', which the only thing I ever saw them do was host this show called "Great Pretenders" (Sat. mornings on ABC Family from 1999-2001) where kids under 18 could lip sync to their favorite pop/rock/or oldies tune, and even dress the part. Someone else mentioned Matinka, and I even noticed Mario Lopez was a dancer on 'Kids Inc.' before he was 'Slater' on 'Saved By The Bell', but what did happen to everyone else? (Obscurity obviously.)
