Frequently Asked Questions __
Here is a spot where all the question's (or at least
most) you e-mail me about can be answered. If there is a question you want
answered that is NOT listed here, please e-mail me
here. Again, please make sure you check to
see if your question is here before you e-mail me.
1. When is Kids Incorporated coming on DVD?
This has been asked over and over again. I am not quite sure when Kids
Incorporated is coming on DVD. The main thing that would hold this show back
is the music licensing. It costs big bucks to get licensing for music. It
may be hard to get the rights to certain songs. One instance is the hit
show, Fame from the early 80s. Some of the music had to be replaced because
the license was either too expensive or not available. So we just have to
wait and see what happens.
It was said back in
September of 2005 by Fergie (Stacy Ferguson) that we would be able to see
all her terrible outfits relived, but MGM said they haven't heard anything
and that it would be difficult for music licensing as said above. Someone
could have the international rights to it, but no one knows for sure.
2. Who owns Kids
Incorporated right now?
That's a good question. Currently, MGM owns the rights to the domestic
release of the show, whether it is on TV or DVD. The KI archives
(video footage) is owned by Disney right now. Thomas Lynch has no ownership
of the show anymore as far as I have been told.
3. Does Kids Incorporated have any albums or video releases?
Yes! Kids Incorporated released 4 albums: Kids Incorporated (1983 - A
special made before Rahsaan Patterson [The Kid] joined); Kids Incorporated
(1984 - Season 1); The Chart Hits by Kids Incorporated (1985 - Season 2);
New Attitude by Kids Incorporated (1985 - Season 2). They also released 3
VHS specials: Kids Incorporated - The Beginning (1983-84; Chartbusters
(1985); The Best of Kids Incorporated (1985)
After Kids Incorporated was
aquisitioned by the Disney Channel, the records and VHS stopped being
4. Why did Disney do that?
I have no idea. It's a shame really, they sold like hot cakes from what
I remember, my Mom in 1985 went to about 10 stores to find them and they
were always sold out because they were so popular.
5. Did you make the show? If not, who did?
No, I didn't make the show nor do I have any affiliation with anything
about it except for the fact that I have a fan site about it. It was created
by Thomas W. Lynch who has gone on to produce and create tons of shows,
including the latest hit, Romeo on Nickelodeon.
6. Why did Kids Incorporated go off the air?
Kids Incorporated went off the air in 1996 because The Disney Channel's
10 year license expired. It was broadcast overseas until 2001 in some
European countries. Disney didn't renew it because it was redesigning its
programming for its new look and line up. It's quite a shame really.
7. Can you tell/give (Insert KI star's name here) something for me?
I do know several of the Kids Inc. stars personally, but I cannot
give them or tell them comments from you. Some of them do visit the site so
if you left a comment on the message boards I'm sure they'd see it. Sorry, I
just can't do it.
8. Where was the show filmed?
The show was filmed in California at the Hollywood Center Studios
9. Did the P*lace (Palace) really exist, if so, where?
You'd be surprised how often I get this question. The P*lace didn't
really exist. We also don't know what city/state Kids Incorporated took
place in, but we do know the street name they are on is called 'South
Street' which is confirmed in Season 4 in the episode 'Front Page News'.
10. How come you don't update the site everyday?
Because I don't have the time to maintain it daily. I try to update
the site every other day so you guys can watch, listen or read something
different. Which is why I have other sites that you can look at when this
site doesn't have an update.
11. Why can't you put all the mp3s and videos you have, on this site
for us to download?
There are a number of reasons why I don't do that. For one, I don't
have all the episodes; I have about 125 out of the 150 episodes that aired.
Secondly, if I post all the mp3's and video's, people will get download
happy and crash my server. Thirdly, if people get what they want then they
won't come to the site and the Kids Inc. spirit will be lost after their
need is satisfied.
12. Why don't you post more KI-TV's?
The reason why I don't post more KI-TV's is I need to post them every
6 weeks or every couple of months. If I post a new episode that contains 5
songs, it's 5 less video clips I can post on the site. Why would people want
the individual clips if I can post it in the full episode? There are
currently about 6-8 hours of KI eps on the site for you to watch. Start
there for now :) hehehehe.
13. How come you don't post KI-Radio's more often?
I try to update KI-Radio every couple of week's and let everyone
listen to it a few times. There are plenty of KI-Radio's on the site that
will keep you singing and dancing for about 6 hours! So keep that in mind :)
14. Can you send me this video/mp3?
Sure! I would love to. If there is a video or mp3 that you want and I
have it encoded, shoot me over an e-mail
here. If I have it, I will send you an
e-mail with links to download your requests. I will be setting up a login
system to gather your requests soon. Look out for that coming up in the next
month or so.
