Scott Vincent James Baio was born in Brooklyn, New York on 22nd September 1961 to Italian-American used car salesman Mario Baio and his wife, Rose.
The outgoing child grew up in the close-knit Ridge Bay neighbourhood with his parents and older twin siblings, Steven and Stephanie.
The show was actually cancelled after only one year, but was successfully resurrected in 1987 as a first-run syndication, after which it ran for a further three years.
‘Charles In Charge’ became a family favourite, returning Baio to the forefront of television stardom, once again reaffirming his position as a household name.
By the age of 12, Baio was weary of the process and often chose to play stickball with his friends instead of braving the rush hour traffic to the city.
