Never Too Old is the 5th episode of Season 6 of Kids Incorporated and 96th episode overall. In this episode; the kids try to cheer Stacy up after she learns her grandfather has to move to a retirement home.

Plot SummaryEdit

We begin with an energetic performance of "I Only Want to Be with You" before seeing Flip at the counter trying a joke about elderly newlyweds. The jokes continue (along with Richie complaining he's sore after bending down and Devyn complaining of a sore wrist after helping straighten Richie up) with the kids and Flip unaware of Stacy's growing annoyance; at least at first ("From Me to You").

Stacy arrives at the counter not wanting anything; then reveals why she was so glum. Her grandfather - who she happened to be very close to - had just been placed into a resthome; and she felt she couldn't bring herself to go see him there (preferring to remember when he was more active); sparking a discussion with the other kids on their thoughts on aging ("We're Old"). We then see Stacy flipping through a family photo album, leading to her reminiscing about the first time she sang in public (going on a stage at a club her grandfather and some of his friends were and singing Jingle Bells). This appears to be what convinces Stacy to go to the retirement home (alone); at least to say thanks ("All This Time").

Meanwhile; four other worried kids are waiting for Stacy's return when, to their surprise, Stacy's mentioning how active her grandfather and some others at the retirement home were, even going on to invite her grandfather and some of his friends to a concert at the P*lace. This leads to closing song "More Than You Know"; at the conclusion of which sees Stacy and her grandfather embrace at the end.
