On September 20, 1984, the United States watched for the first time one of the most amazing shows of all time ever made in the U.S. It is The Cosby Show. This magnificent show centers upon the lives of the Huxtables: Cliff, the obstetrician and his lawyer wife Claire, their daughters Sondra, Denise, Vanessa and Rudy, and the son Theo. Based on the standup comedy of Bill Cosby, the show focused on his observations of family life in general. Although based on comedy, the series also addresses some more serious topics, such as learning disabilities and teen pregnancy, history and all that jazz. You can check out on the cast of The Cosby Show by clicking on The Cosby Show Cast.
Dr. Cosby is one of those comedians that did not use foul language, the N-word, or any other derogatory terms. As an educator, he has always focused on teaching families how to respect and educate their children. I personally like him and his messages very much. Watch this video below and see what I am talking about:
Also, The Cosby Show has launched to the world many talents and I would like to share this one with you. Probably you already know Miss Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman from That’s So Raven (As Visões da Raven). Raven was born on December 10, 1985. She is an American actress, comedian, model, singer, songwriter, dancer, television producer and talk show host. She first appeared on television in 1989 on The Cosby Show as Olivia Kendall.
See what Raven, as Olivia Kendall, was doing on The Cosby Show. She was funny!
However, the best moment in my opinion was when she was trying to understand Dr. Cosby’s job as an obstetrician:
Something I could not forget to talk about is Dr. Cosby weird but very original sweaters. Which would you pick for tonight?
Well, The Cosby Show was filmed up to April 30, 1992 and after 25 years the whole cast, I mean the Huxtables family reunited and this is what you can watch here down below:
The Cosby Show is divided into 8 seasons and you can have them in DVDs. I highly recommend this amazing show. I have ordered mine and now all I need to do is get my family together and have a good family time.
Don’t miss your chance to watch this awesome show. I have shown it to my students and they seemed to have enjoyed it very much. Hope you enjoy it as well. So before we go, let me share this with you. The Cosby Show was meant to make you laugh, have a good time, but also to teach y’all something about history and icons of African American History. Watch this one and get to know what and how they talk about the Washington March led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Awesome, ain’t it? So let me know about your favorite episode and I will be glad to share mine as well. So, let me put some pepper on my feet. See y’all in the next post.
