I never really noticed before, but after reading this thread I realize Wizard of Oz references are everywhere. The ones I remember most are Claire Pike singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow in a make your own video booth and everybody going so ape about it she thought about becoming a child actress, and Karen having an argument with Pamela Harding about whether or not it's a scary movie.
Leave It To Beaver seemed to come up a lot, too. And how many times did we hear the story of Hanukkah?
Car accidents seem like a running theme-
Happy Holidays, Jessi- Jessi, Aunt Cecelia, Becca and Squirt are in accident Mind Your Own Business, Kristy- Kristy and Claudia are in an accident California Girls- Stacey is in an accident Mary Anne and the Memory Garden- SMS student killed in a car accident Jessi and the Troublemaker- Danielle, Becca, and Vanessa have an accident in the Robert's car while Jessi is sitting BSC in the USA- Watson's RV gets rearended Snowbound- Dawn and her mom have a skidding accident and hit the neighbors mailbox
Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a lot of accidents.

What about "The Music Man?" Susan Felder is obsessed with singing it in "Kristy and the Secret of Susan." Claudia reminisces about it in "Keep Out, Claudia," and Mary Anne thinks she and Logan are going to go see it in "Mary Anne vs. Logan." There might even be more than that, but those are the ones that come to mind right now.
I agree. I kind of did it to death when I was younger, so I hadn't watched the movie in years until it came on tv last year on the 4th of July, and then I enjoyed it thoroughly. But it is also a show that gets a lot of high school productions.
My high school had a middle school and an elementary school on the same campus, so I suppose those kind of productions were left up to the younger grades. And being a private school, I guess that we also had more freedom in terms of choosing productions that were controversial and probably wouldn't be allowed in public schools.
