September 8, 1984 - February 9, 1994
NBC & Disney Channel Children's Series 154 Episodes
Jennifer Love Hewitt
The series revolves around a group of children and teens
who performed in their own rock group called Kids Incorporated.
They struggled to deal with issues ranging from schoolyard
crushes to peer pressure to child abuse, while performing
regularly at a local former musical club called The P*lace.
It had originally been named The Palace and had been a
theater where, supposedly, the biggest names in
entertainment, including Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra,
had once performed. But the first "a" in the neon sign
burned out and was never replaced throughout its run.
It was never explained how the group funded or profited from
their performances, but the show did not aim for strict realism.
The action took place on abstract "stagey" sets and the plots
involved many fantasy elements, such as the group meeting
a robot, a runaway princess and even a wise-cracking bicycle.
In addition to their performances on stage, the group would
break into song when they were off-stage like a stage musical.
The city in which the P*lace was located was never disclosed.
Kids Incorporated began life as a Saturday-morning TV series
on the NBC Television Network, where it spent its first 2
seasons. After NBC's cancellation, Kids Incorporated was
picked up by The Disney Channel, which aired new episodes
for the next 7 years until its defacto cancellation in 1994.
