* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The very first episode has Lori Singer's character, Julie Miller, learn that she's supposed to dress differently to fit in at a new school, rather than expect other students not to pick on her for trivial things. Only Bruno points out that picking on her for being different is unfair. To make matters worse, part of the reason she changes school is because her parents divorced, not because she really wants to go to that performing arts school in particular.

* EarWorm: ''All over the place.'' That many of the songs were written by at least one person who also wrote original songs for fellow MGM musical series ''Series/KidsIncorporated'' should tip you in.

* HilariousInHindsight: The Season 5 episode "Self Defense" (focusing on several of the girls wanting to learn karate after the School of the Arts is repeatedly vandalized) becomes this to a degree considering Nia Peeples' other major role saw her get plenty of opportunity to use her karate skills on ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger''.



* RealLifeRelative: Debbie Allen's husband, then-San Diego (now [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Los Angeles]]) Clippers guard Norm Nixon, appeared in the Season 3 episode "Heritage").



** "Tough Act to Follow", even moreso when you consider that [[RealitySubtext the actor playing Mr. Crandall had just died.]]

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series proved far more popular in UsefulNotes/{{Europe}} and especially the [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} United Kingdom]] that it did in the home market UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates; to the point that it played a role in Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer and LBS Communications partnering to [[{{Uncanceled}} continue production in first-run syndication]] after the series was canceled by Creator/{{NBC}} in 1983.
* {{Narm}} : On occasion. Some episodes are available on YouTube. Some of the actors veer into LargeHam territory, and on occasion the vocal performances are cringe-worthy. Plus TheEighties.

** The song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6pEcaIsOgE "Come What May"]] (not [[Film/MoulinRouge that one]], an original song composed for the show) in particular is also heartbreakingly gorgeous.
