The dad was an accountant at a Los Angelos corporation, not a musician, and his pet name for Blossom was "ace". Joey Lawrence's name in the pilot was "Donnie." And the theme song was "My Prerogative" by Bobby Brown, not "My Opinionation".

Though the original concept of the show was for Blossom to have a hip, single musician dad the executives insisted she have two parents in the pilot. After a great deal of fighting with show producers the network caved and the show went back to the original idea, casting Ted Wass as Blossom's single musician dad.
