Melissa Joan Hart
America's Teenagers: Growing Up on Television -- A Museum of Television & Radio Special 1997 - 1998 (TV Show)
A performer on television since her pre-school years, Melissa Joan Hart was the star of two hit series - "Clarissa Explains It All" (Nickelodeon, 1991-94) and "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" (ABC/The WB, 1996-2003). Her perky, gently comedic screen persona made her a huge favorite with the shows' pre-teen and teen audiences, as well as with parents who approved of their family-friendly messages. Hart occasionally struggled to find equal success after both programs ran their course, but eventually settled into a regular string of well-regarded TV movies for ABC Family and other networks, which helped to preserve her image as one of TV's most likable and watchable performers.
