  • show Description
  • How many times have you asked your friend have you ever seen The Kids of Degrassi Street? Most likely they didn't know what it was. During the first few months for the series it did not do good in ratings, but got better. This show starred many characters that all went to the same school, right next to the Degrassi Grocery. Everyone knew everyone in the little town. This show dealt with many issues in teen and pre-teens life. After the show was done airing most of the actors went on to the other series Degrassi Junior High, they just had different names. There were many rumors as the show went on that someof the cast had to re-audition for Degrassi High. Those were never confirmed. The Kids of Degrassi Street was filmed 1979-1985 around Degrassi Street and Queen Street East in Toronto, Canada. The show has sadly been canceled. If you like this show you should watch the new series Degrassi: The Next Generation.moreless

    • The girl who plays Irene in this episode (Nancy Lam) is the same girl who played Sarah (Cookie's hospital roommate) in "Cookie Goes to the Hospital".

    • This is the only episode that does not have one of the children's name in the title.

    Trivia (8)

    • The title card that shows during the episode leaves out the word "the" in the title and is simply called "Cookie Goes to Hospital".

    • Goof: In "Ida Makes A Movie" Cookies doll gets thrown into a garbage truck and destroyed, here (and in subsequent episodes) her doll is back.

    • Goof: Lisa types on the typewriter the line about a thief and yet in the newspaper it looks like it was handwritten.

    • Goof: Leon thinks that Lisa sold Martin the fake vomit, but it was actually Pete, and Martin never corrected him, even when they were right there. Also, Lisa never told them that it was Pete.

    • In this episode we learn that Chuck and Pete's dad is in a halfway house, even though they say he is in Jail.

    • Goof: When Connie is delivering newspapers the first time she picks one up and the rocks fall off the wagon and when she goes back they are back on top of the papers. The next scene the rocks are completely gone.

    • We find out that Griff's real name is Robin Griffiths and that Griff is a nickname.

    • A number of previous episodes were referenced in this one. First when Casey asks Billy his pet peeve he says "chain letters", this refers to the episode "Billy Breaks the Chain" where Billy was sent a chain letter. When Lisa is apologizing to Casey she brings up a few more. She talks about her dad's wedding which happened in "Noel Buys a Suit", the time they did a paper together in "Lisa Makes the Headlines" and the time they had a rabbit in "Casey Draws the Line". Also the time that Griff and Lisa went on the bad date is brought up (which has been mentioned a few times since then) which happened in "Connie Makes a Catch".
