* 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]]".
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: 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.
* 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 Creator/MelissaJoanHart'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.
