Growing Pains

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Growing Pains, 1985-92. Theme song “As Long As We’ve Got Each Other”. Alan Thicke wrote the theme song for this show & many others.
Alan also starred as Dr. Jason Seaver, a psychiatrist working out of his home & taking care of the kids while his wife, Maggie (Joanna Kerns), worked as a reporter. They had 3 kids at the beginning of the series, played by Kirk Cameron, Tracy Gold, & Jeremy Miller. Another baby girl was played by twins, inexplicably aging from toddler in season 5 to 6 years old by season 6. The family also took in a homeless boy, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, in the last season.

Show me that smile again. (Show me that smile)
Don't waste another minute on your cryin'.
We're nowhere near the end (nowhere near)
The best is ready to begin.

As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin right in our hands.
Baby, rain or shine, all the time
We got each other, sharin' the laughter and love.


Trivia: in the show, Tracy Gold, as Carol, was teased about being fat. Later, Tracy successfully sought treatment for anorexia.
