Another song shared by both shows was "That's Dancin'", which appeared in the ''Fame'' episode "The Rivalry" and the ''Kids Inc'' episode "The Wallflower".

* OutOfCharacterMoment - Season 4's "Now Appearing" has this set up the main plot when Kid is the only member of the band not excited to see an upcoming Patti [=LaBelle=] concert despite being a big fan of the singer. It's later revealed that the opening act, a comedian named Billy Blaster, [[spoiler:is the Kid's estranged brother; who he hadn't seen in five years]].

* SesameStreetCred:
** Ruth Buzzi, Florence Henderson, David Hasselhoff, boxer Ray Mancini, Shabba Doo, Barney Martin and Paul Rodriguez all guest starred at one point or another.
** The trope also applies to series director Gary Halvorson. After ''Kids Incorporated'' ended its run, Halvorson went on to direct ten episodes of ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', the film ''Film/TheAdventuresOfElmoInGrouchland'', and several editions of the UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade (and later, the Ride/DisneyThemeParks' annual Christmas parade).

* SnapBack - Like you cannot even imagine. For instance, one episode was built around Renee having to get new glasses. She becomes very self-conscious about it and the gang try to cheer her up. She grows to like her eyewear -- which of course [[BrokenAesop she is never seen wearing ever again]].
**There is a season 4 episode where Renee uses her glasses as reading glasses...she probably uses contacts and uses her glasses for reading

The show's longevity (it predated the Disney Channel's policy of imposing a 65-episode limit), despite being aired during a period when the Disney Channel was a commercial-free premium station, is taken by fans as evidence of the quality of writing and acting, in spite of the crazier episodes being prime SnarkBait. The show launched the careers of Stacy Ferguson (aka Fergie, of the BlackEyedPeas), Mario Lopez (of ''SavedByTheBell''), Scott Wolf (of ''Series/PartyOfFive''), Eric Balfour (of ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'' and ''Series/{{Haven}}''), and (Jennifer) Love Hewitt. Note that the cast swapped people in and out nearly every season. So by the time the show ended, the titular fictional band was an entirely different group of people from where they started!

* SesameStreetCred: Celebrity guests like Creator/DavidHasselhoff and Florence Henderson fit this trope. Actual ''Series/SesameStreet'' cast members Ruth Buzzi and Alaina Reed guest starred as well.
