In only the first few seasons of the series (including the pilot), during the opening credits there is an extra, unspecified kid in the Lambert/Foster clan. He can be seen as the family enters the amusement park and scatters to different areas, during Peggy Rea's credit, and another instance with Suzanne Somers later in the sequence. This actor is Jarrett Lennon, originally cast as Mark Foster, and later replaced by Christopher Castile. It's been theorized that the original actor's mismatched hair color caused test audience confusion about which family he originated from. See more »
In the opening credits the amusement park is intended to be in Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Michigan. However at the end of the credits the body of water can be see to have rather large waves on a calm day. These waves are much too large for Lake Michigan in the absence of a storm. See more »
I've been watching this show since the first episode and have always loved it. I hate when shows get cut off with so much going on, mainly Dana's relationship with Rich. That was a great move by the producers of the show, because, seriously, who saw it coming? The only thing that was bad was that some of the show's magic was lost when Cody left. He was without a doubt the funniest character on it. Of course, they tried at one point to replace the comic relief with Flash, who was entertaining at Disney World, trying to break the visiting record. But, he never did live up to the Code-Man. It was also cool seeing Bronson Pinchot as a Frenchman for a season (he brings over a good character from his star performance on Perfect Strangers).
