The goings-on in the life of a successful African-American family.
Cliff and Clair Huxtable are supposed to be around the same age. Bill Cosby was born in 1937, Phylicia Rashad was born in 1948.
Rudy, what are you gonna do in life with a fourth grade education ?
Rudy: Teach third grade !
Cliff Huxtable is an OB/GYN in New York City who is successful enough to have his practice in the basement of his home. Yet, he has no office staff, a single examine room, and apparently no waiting area.
The credit sequences that varied from season to season all have one thing in common-the last shot in each one is a closeup of Bill Cosby's face, and in all but the first, he is smiling.
The season 1 DVD set was made up of edited, syndication-length episodes missing about 2 minutes per episode from their original broadcast. It was only because of the consumer outcry that season 2 and beyond were released unedited. The "Complete Series" set includes all 8 seasons, including the first one, in the original uncut network versions.
