NBC's That's One To Grow On!

Kim Fields in a PSA for "One To Grow On"

While watching our favorite morning television programs between 1983 and 1989, NBC provided us kids with informative PSAs called "One To Grow On," which they later renamed, "The More You Know." These helpful public service announcements focused on everything from safety and hygiene to ethics and morals. What's more, they came from our favorite '80s celebrities such as Family Ties' Michael J. Fox, Silver Spoons star Ricky Schroder and  Facts of Life's Kim Fields

I have always hated going to the doctor and dentist. Apparently I missed this particular helpful PSA from Punky Brewster star Soleil  Moon Frye telling us not to worry when it's time to see the doctor. 

Here's "One To Grow On" from my personal favorite teen idol, Jason Bateman reminding us to be courteous and keep our music down. Too funny. Check it out!

I remember those very well. It's funny how big Jason Bateman has become lately.

This is the same dude that made Teen Wolf Too. Probably the worst sequel of all time. How did that not kill his career?!?!?

Obviously my brain isn't working today, because I don't remember those. My brain does that to me all the time!

I always thought those were nauseating!

I definitely remember these - not the specifics of any of them, however. I'm glad that you posted this. I'll be heading to You Tube to watch some more later. I agree that the music one was pretty funny. They should use walkmans.

This was when back when Saturday morning TV was educational.
