Kim Fields (born May 12, 1969) appeared in two episodes of Good Times as Kim, a friend of Penny, in two Season 6 episodes.

She is the daughter of actress/director Chip Fields.
Acting Career Edit
Before appearing on Facts of Life, Kim co-starred in a short-lived CBS-TV sitcom called Baby, I'm Back with Demond Wilson and Denise Nicholas, and appeared in a television commercial for Mrs. Butterworth's pancake syrup. She later appeared on Good Times as Kim, a friend of Penny Gordon Woods. Her real-life mother, Chip Fields, guest-starred on Good Times in a recurring role as Lenela Gordon, the mother of Penny. Chip and Kim never appeared in the same episodes. Kim's episodes on Good Times were "The Snow Storm" and "The Physical" in Season 6.
Kim played the role of Tootie on the sitcom The Facts of Life from 1979 to 1988. Even decades later, many still recognize her catchphrase, "We're in troouu-ble!" When the show began production, Fields was so short that the producers put her on roller skates during the first season so that they could avoid difficult camera angles. Ironically, she later lost a role as Arnold Jackson's girlfriend on The Facts of Life's parent show Diff'rent Strokes because she was taller than Gary Coleman, who played Arnold.
Her real-life mother Chip Fields portrayed Diane Ramsey, Tootie's mother, on Facts of Life as well as playing Regine's mother on Living Single.
After taking time away from acting to attend Pepperdine University, she had a starring role in the hit Fox sitcom Living Single from 1993 to 1998 as Regine Hunter.
Fields guest-starred on television series such as One on One, The Golden Palace, and appeared as herself on HBO's The Comeback.
On February 1, 2007, Fields was reunited with Lisa Whelchel on WFAA-TV's Good Morning Texas. Fields was in Dallas to promote her appearance in the production Issues: We've All Got 'Em when Whelchel was introduced as a surprise guest. It marked the first time in six years (since The Facts of Life Reunion movie) that Fields and Whelchel had seen each other.
Fields also appeared in an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, in which Will Smith pretended to marry her in an attempt to seduce her.
