In Kristy's Great Idea, Rainbow Brite dolls and G.I. Joes were mentioned. Also, Claudia read a book called "Where the Wild Things Are".
In Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, The Muppet Show was mentioned (Nina's favorite TV show).
In The Ghost at Dawn's House, Sixteen Candles, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Mary Poppins, and The Parent Trap are mentioned.
In Poor Mallory, a Skipper doll was mentioned (Claire had been wanting one).
In FF #2: Stacey VS. Claudia, The Poltergeist (movie) was mentioned.
In MA's Bad-luck Mystery, the movie Pollyanna was mentioned.
I also remember the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls were mentioned a couple of times. Plus, Barbie dolls. Sesame Street and Mr. Roger's Neighborhood were mentioned. And, of course, there were tons of Mary Poppins, Parent Trap, and Jason Priestly references. Hayley Mills, Bradd Pitt, Johnny Depp were also mentioned. The Watsons, Gilligan's Island, Leave It to Beaver, The Brady Bunch were mentioned. Plus Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson were mentioned.

-In Kristy's Big Day, Kristy says Stacey looks like Madonna and adds that if Claudia wasn't Japanese, she'd look like Madonna too. -In Little Miss Stoneybrook...and Dawn, Sabrina Bouvier the Younger sings Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany's at the pageant. None of the BSC seemed to recognize it, which is strange considering how they all love old movies, especially Mary Anne. -In Jessi and the Bad Babysitter, when Dawn is filming her video around town to send the BSC, she says Carol and Jeff sing "Uncle John's Band" by the Grateful Dead for her. -In Dawn and the Big Sleepover, one of the triplets' penpals talks about Super Nintendo and the Ninja Turtles in his letter. -Also in Jessi and the Bad Babysitter, Vanessa is all excited to see the Troll dolls at the party store and then Jessi sees Margo steal a Troll ring. I LOVED Troll dolls at the time, so that was very current! -Abby's love of Aretha Franklin and Elvis is very well-known and she's super excited to visit Graceland in BSC in the USA. -In Snowbound, Kristy rents Uncle Buck and Back to the Future to watch with Bart when he comes over.
This has probably already been mentioned, but I know two clients (I want to think it was the Arnolds) had Simpsons and TMNT sleeping bags. Also, The Little Mermaid is mentioned quite often, especially in the older books.
