Little Penny from Good Times has come a long way: Janet Damito Jo Jackson turns 46 today (May 16) so “Happy Birthday!” to Ms. Janet.
The youngest child of the Jackson family, Janet began her career with the variety television series The Jacksons in 1976 and went on to appear in other television shows throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, including Good Times, Fame, and Diff’rent Strokes.
Janet also went on to star in movies such as Poetic Justice, Why Did I Get Married I and “Too,” The Nutty Professor: The Klumps, and For Colored Girls.
As you know, Janet’s music credits are too much to name here but now Now She’s All Grown Up. Funny how time flies…
