Yes, Beverly Hills Teens was aimed for girls, but I have to admit that I actually watched the series (well parts of it) when I was a six-year-old. I remember the series being paired with Maxie's World, but I was only wasting time until Alvin & the Chipmunks started. That being said, I still have fond memories of the Beverly Hills Teens, though the series has aged, especially with all the '80 clich├ęs. New generations of kids may not understand some of the slang, but adults in their thirties will get a kick out of revisiting the very rich teens of Beverly Hills.
