Thanks to the rare joys of the YouTube recommendation algorithm, I found PushingUpRoses, an awesome channel that runs through classic shows such as Murder She Wrote, Golden Girls, and Goosebumps. But for this video, PUR looked at the history and influence of “Clarissa Explains It All”.

PUR runs through how it came to be, how different it was to have a young teenage girl take centre stage in a 90s kids show, and all the complexities and nuances of the cast. It reminded me how much I loved Clarissa and how much leading TV women influenced my childhood, including Wonder Woman and She-Hulk. Clarissa wasn’t a superhero in the literal sense but I’m sure fans felt her presence in the 90s.
