Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A variety of Sitcom in which the main characters are children, usually teenagers, with adults relegated to supporting or background roles such as mentors or authority figures. Such shows naturally tend to cover more kid-oriented situations and plots, and often make good (and repeated) use of Can't Get Away with Nuthin' and the Very Special Episode.

Perhaps the most common setting for a Kid Com is an academic one, with the characters being schoolmates. But it can also follow a group of youngsters who just hang out at the local Malt Shop or other "clubhouse"-type location.

Dom Coms generally don't qualify for inclusion in this category, since the protagonistic roles tend to be reversed (parents as main characters, children as supporting). However, a Dom Com can double as a Kid Com if the primary focus is on the children rather than the adults or the family as a whole.

A large percentage of those currently in production are made by either Schneider's Bakery for Nickelodeon or It's A Laugh Productions for the Disney Channel.

Often prone to Dawson Casting.
