Who could forget the super-nerdy antics of Steve Urkel -- what did he do after he hung up his suspenders? How about the Musical Youth -- did they ever stop passing the dutchie? And Tatum O'Neal ... remember her leading the Bad News Bears to victory? What happened to her? (Well, OK, we kinda know that one, but you get the picture.)

These are just some of the adorable little faces we'll be featuring in "100 Greatest Kid Stars." Others include: Drew Barrymore back in her firestarting days; Little House's "Half-Pint" Melissa Gilbert; Saved by the Bell's resident geek "Screech," a.k.a. Dustin Diamond; hip hop's backward pants-wearing Kriss Kross; and of course, the little big man of kid stars, Mr. Gary Coleman.

In the tradition of other successful "100 Greatest ... " specials, VH1 has assembled the definitive list of child stars, and we'll count them down over five hours. Using new, exclusive interviews with many of the stars themselves and that golden footage from way back when ...
