Just the Ten of Us is a sitcom that aired on ABC. The show is a spinoff from Growing Pains, centering on Mike Seaver's former coach, Graham Lubbock, a popular character from that show's first three seasons.

In the two-part Growing Pains episode "How the West Was Won", Coach Lubbock lost his job at the high school that Mike and Carol Seaver attended. In Just the Ten of Us, Coach Lubbock moves to L.A. to find new work at a Catholic school. Along for the ride are his wife, four teenage daughters, one son, a younger daughter, and two infants. Counting the Coach himself, this is the "ten" of the title.

Worth noting is that each of the actresses playing the teens on the show appeared in a different Nightmare on Elm Street movie.

A couple of the cast members also played different characters on Growing Pains. Jamie Luner guest-starred in the episodes "Some Enchanted Evening" (before the show started) and "Happy Halloween" (after the show ended). Heather Langenkamp guest-starred in the three-parter "Let's Go Europe" as a different character, also after the show ended.
