We may know her by a different successful sitcom these days, but once upon a time Mayim Bialik starred as a positive and hat-happy teenaged girl in Blossom. As the titular character, she encountered the hardships of growing up, but she was always joined by her loyal family and best friend.

Blossom helped define the look and feel of the early '90s, and many people who didn't even watch an episode know all about its fashion and stars. Let's take a look at what the cast has been up to since the show premiered 25 years ago!

Blossom Russo - Mayim Bialik

After hanging up Blossom's extensive collection of hats, Mayim Bialik turned down Yale and Harvard to study at UCLA, graduating with a B.S. degree in neuroscience, Hebrew studies, and Jewish studies. She went on to get her doctorate and Ph.D. in neuroscience. She currently appears as Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on [The Big Bang Theory](series:200751) and co-hosts Candid Camera.

Joey Russo - Joey Lawrence

Joey Lawrence, who seems to exclusively play people with his own name, left his "Whoa!" days behind and appeared in another sitcom Brotherly Love with his real-life brothers. These days, you can catch him on ABC family alongside another '90s favorite, Melissa Joan Hart, in [Melissa & Joey](series:1074814).

Six LeMuere - Jenna Von Oÿ

Following her turn as ditzy best friend Six, Jenna Von Oÿ got another main sitcom role on UPN's The Parkers. In 2014, she gave birth to a baby girl named Marlowe. Von Oÿ may be far removed from her Blossom days, but she's clearly maintained her love of hats.

Anthony Russo - Michael Stoyanov

Michael Stoyanov, who played the oldest brother on Blossom, ultimately left the show to write for a few seasons of Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He also did some writing for MADtv and appeared as one of the Joker's goons in The Dark Knight.

Nick Russo - Ted Wass

After Blossom wrapped in 1995, Ted Wass decided to retire from acting and focused on directing episodic television full-time. He's racked up an impressive amount of directorial credits on a variety of shows including Less Than Perfect, [Two and a Half Men](series:200558), [2 Broke Girls](series:722490), [Rules Of Engagement](series:755973), [Mom](movie:811354), and [The Big Bang Theory](series:200751).
