* HeyItsThatGuy: Melissa Joan Hart, who would go on to star in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''.
** And a boy Clarissa liked was Series/{{Dawson|sCreek}}.
** And little brat Elsie Soperstein was [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Michelle]] [[GossipGirl Trachtenberg]].
** And would you believe that SuzanneCollins wrote for the show?
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Season one got a DVD release and is even popular enough that 7 episodes of it are on PlaystationNetwork. The other 4 seasons? Not so much.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In 1995, a spin-off called ''Clarissa Now'' was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6is-eKWSRgg pitched]] to Creator/{{CBS}}. It would have shown Clarissa as a college student in New York, working as an intern for a newspaper.
** 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.
