* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Season one got a DVD release and is even popular enough that 7 episodes of it are on UsefulNotes/PlaystationNetwork. The other 4 seasons? Not so much.
** Subverted recently for Seasons 2,3 and 4. The first four seasons are now avaliable to stream on Hulu. Played straight with most of season 5, as only the first three episodes are on Hulu.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Michelle Trachtenberg as the little girl Clarissa babysits in "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Babysitting]]".

** Interestingly, that was almost the exact same career path that Melissa Joan Hart's next character, [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Sabrina]], did follow after high school. This has led to more than a few people joking that they didn't know it was two separate shows, and just assumed that ''Clarissa'' woke up and discovered she was a witch.

* UnintentionalPeriodPieceUnintentionalPeriodPiece: Good God. The intro alone could easily date the series to the 90s and ''that'' isn't even getting into the the characters clothes, the style of the house, and Clarissa's old 90-something era computer.

** Backstage Edition: And would you believe that SuzanneCollins (the same one who is now famous for ''TheHungerGames'' trilogy) used to write for the show?
** Another Backstage "HeyItsThatGuy" (albeit a more obscure one): The show creator was Matthew Laurance, a one-time feature player on ''SaturdayNightLive'', during its [[SeasonalRot critically abysmal sixth season]]. Laurence's only claims to fame on the show at that time was (a) his celebrity impression of mafioso Jimmy "The Weasel" Fratianno, and (b) he had a twin brother (Mitchell) who wrote for the show.
