Might have been. Esp since she lived in NYC, it wouldn't have been too much of a hassle for her to drop by.

That would have been really cool. She's always been my fave "Facts of Life" character. I always loved it whenever the girls would appear on "Diff'rent Strokes".

Well, Jo did have interaction with both Arnold and Willis on season two of "Facts". I know she was ready to throw down with Willis in basketball. She showed him up when she was spinning the ball with her finger. LOL.

In the episode where Blair was selling cosmetics and Willis was helping her carry boxes Jo and Willis shot some baskets which was a cool added touch. I could just see them doing something like that.

That would've been interesting, TVFactFan. Jo was the only student from Eastland to never make a guest appearance on "Diff'rent Strokes."

Actually she did in the very first episode with the rest of the DS cast but never again after that.

That's right, thebigcookie! Dana Plato did indeed guest star (alongside her "Strokes" castmates Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges, and Conrad Bain) in the premiere episode of "The Facts Of Life" (entitled "Rough Housing"), aired on 24 August 1979. I always found it peculiar that Plato didn't make any more appearances on "Facts" (ditto for Bain) after the premiere episode, although Kimberly was still enrolled as a student at Eastland during that time. Oddly enough, Coleman and Bridges made guest appearances--in separate episodes--during "Facts'" second season (1980-81)...but not Plato (or Bain).

As thebigcookie pointed out, Dana Plato guest starred in the debut episode of "The Facts Of Life"--entitled "Rough Housing" (24 August 1979)--with her "Strokes" castmates, Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges, and Conrad Bain...although Kimberly was still enrolled as a student at Eastland, Plato never appeared in subsequent episodes of "Facts" (ditto for Bain); Coleman and Bridges did guest-star on "Facts"--in separate episodes--during its second season (1980-81).
