1 thought on “Diff’rent Strokes Spun Off Mrs. Garrett for The Facts of Life Very Quickly

  1. Like a lot people, I only started watching The Facts of Life after it was revamped to just focus on four of the girls, and I believe I never saw Diff’rent Strokes during the Edna Garrett season, so I honestly didn’t realize TFOL was a spinoff until years later!

    I wonder why they made the Eastlake/Eastland switch. It’s such an arbitrary change. Did they find a real school by that name, maybe?
