Trivia

  • A majority of the episodes had the standard theme song, except for these episodes:
    • Christmas Cheers included a slower version of the song with jingle bells ringing through-out. A male voice shouting "Ho Ho Ho!" can be heard at the end of the song. This version of the song was also used during the episode's cut scenes.
    • Boo Boo Is History included the standard season 2 version of the song with an added bang as the title came up.
    • Halloween Scares included another version of the song recorded by Mark Galla. An evil laugh can be heard at the end of the song.
    • Babysitter It Up included the lyrics sung in the melody of the Shake It Up theme song.
  • This was officially the first song that the lead actress Peyton List recorded professionally. She was only 12 years-old when she recorded the first version.
  • The song has been mashed up twice in both crossover episodes. The song was mashed up with Spontaneous' theme song Make It Work (We Are Make It Work) and the Babysitter It Up Theme Song.
  • In the series, Madison wrote the song about the people she lived with (Babysitter Meets Spontaneous).
  • Madison sang an acoustic version of the song in the series finale (coincidentally called We Are Family). This was the first song she recorded professionally. The song played over flashbacks from the series.
    • The series finale was named after this song respectfully.
