* BillingDisplacement: Gradually happened over the course of the series, as the new additions to the cast were added to the roster in the order they joined the show[[note]]Except for Matthew Lawerence, who received a "With" credit[[/note]]. By Season 6, this meant that Betsy Randle was billed prior to everyone ''except'' Ben Savage & William Daniels, and Lindsay Ridgeway was billed prior to Maitland Ward & Trina [=McGee=], despite their severely reduced roles in the final seasons.
