Random Fresh Prince Fun

You know all the lyrics to the song that represented this fantastic television sitcom from the 1990’s.  Did you know that Google Maps does too?

Found this on Geekologie today.  Clever.

The Carlton.  A dance I will never attempt.

Some facts from imdb:

As it required on-location shooting, only one shot of Jazz being thrown out of the house was done (with only a few exceptions). Therefore, to avoid continuity errors, it is made sure that Jazz is always wearing the same shirt in episodes where he’s thrown out.

The show was originally canceled by NBC after the fourth season, with the series finale being the episode where Will moves back to Philadelphia. However, fan reaction and letters written to Will Smith and NBC persuaded them to renew the show and it ended up continuing for two more seasons.

The character ‘Philip Banks’ was ranked #34 in TV Guide’s list of the “50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time”

Why did this show become and stay so big?  I’ll bet it was the sideways hats.

There is no real outline or flow to this blog, I just wanted to show the map, and then I kept going…Happy Weekend to you!

    One of the best shows ever! Plus Uncle Phil is the voice of the Shredder in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon.

    I forgot how much I liked this show–definitely a ’90s staple. I like the goofy Fresh Prince so much better than the smug Will Smith. I know everyone grows up, but still…

    I love the clip when Will does the dance with him until he turns around. If I am feeling a groove pretty strong I do the Carlton dance in my head 🙂

    Funny you should bring this up. I was thinking of this show recently. According to Wikipedia, Will Smith was having trouble with the IRS when he was approached to do the show. They used to air this show a lot in syndication around here. It’s kind of disheartening to see the state of syndicated television these days. Where once you could spend a whole afternoon watching repeats of classic comedies (especially on the weekends), now you see fewer syndicated repeats of any kind, and many of the syndicated timeslots are taken up by contemporary shows, some of which are still running. You know what makes me really upset? Now Craig Kilborn’s talkshow has elbowed it’s way onto KTTV’s late afternoon/ early evening syndicated lineup. If it weren’t for DVD, Youtube, and stations like This TV, there would be almost nothing to watch. I hope I said enough… 😉

    Bad Pants sang (rapped?) the theme song of this show for the kids recently this summer. Well, as good as a geeky white boy can! 😉

    The Google maps thing cracks me up. I want to buy a drink for whoever is responsible for that.
