** A double inversion in season five's "There's a Girl in My Ficus": Tiffani(-Amber) Thiessen plays a girlfriend of Charles in that episode. Thiessen however, was 16 when that episode was broadcast in 1990, Scott Baio was almost 15 years older[[note]]It's particularly puzzling when you consider that at the time episode aired, Thiessen was playing high school student Kelly Kapowski in ''SavedByTheBell'', and also the fact that by ''Charles in Charge's'' fifth season, Charles was still supposed to be a college student[[/note]]. * DirectedByCastMember: Scott Baio directed 36 episodes, using most of which were during the fourth and fifth seasons; in these instances, he is credited as a director under his (partial) full name, Scott Vincent Baio.
