* One episode of ''KidsIncorporated'' revealed that the character who had previously been known only as "The Kid" was embarrassed by his traditional African first name, Ras'san (Also the actor's first name; with two or three exceptions, every character on the show was TheDanza). After a VerySpecialEpisode taught him not to be ashamed of his heritage, everyone started calling him Ras'san. Right up to the end of the episode, after which it was [[SnapBack never mentioned again]]. The guy left the show shortly afterwards.
