It has been 20 years since “The Cosby Show” went off the air, and since then, many black sitcoms have tried to fill the void that the iconic show left behind. But how can you? It was light years ahead of its time when it debuted in ’84, and from it, we learned a lot of things. For instance, why you shouldn’t drink, the importance of Gordon Gartrelle shirts, the song “The Night Time (Is the Right Time),” and what the Cosby sweater was, among other more serious and important things. It has been a long while since we’ve seen everyone, so why not catch up with everyone’s favorite black sitcom family?

P.S., We haven’t done a where are they now on “The Cosby Show” before by the way. Just our favorite outfits from the cast, and a piece on the hair of the female cast members. Just in case you were thinking that…Thanks!

Bill Cosby

As Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, Bill Cosby was the quintessential black father…or at least the black father we all thought we wanted to have. He was funny, but stern, and he was cool as hell! Peep out those Coogi-esque sweaters he was rocking, his dancing skills, and that time he ran track with his old team in those short shorts. Fastest. Dad. Ever. But anywho, Cosby did more work before the show on-screen, but afterwards, he did more producing and hosting. TV wise he did “The Cosby Mysteries,” “Cosby,” hosted “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” and currently does the show “Obkb,” where interviews kids across the country. Movie wise, he was in movies like The Meteor Man and Jack. Aside from all that, we know Cosby likes to speak up on political issues, problems in the black community, and more. Plus, he’s racked up a number of honorary degrees just for being him.

    This is definitely a timeless show… I love that it is an American CLASSIC – it crossed so many boundaries and portrayed us in such a real and positive light.
