| wasn't the outdoor set the same as sesames street?
great show and if i remember if i remember correctly i believe the the out door new york city set the same street set they used in sesame street? This show was so brilliant and truly great. I remember Jackey being so sexy and i remember it being so great Marla Gibb had a hit TV show after the Jefferson's. This show is one of the great TV shows of all time right up there with the Cosby show and Murphy's place. I remember the street set and the stairs so vividly i can almost remember Oscar and big bird et all and the ghost's of PBS on the street with Marla Gibb. This was such a great show on NBC if i remember correctly it ran on Saturday Night's for a while with Empty Nest and Golden Girls. what a great adult combo.
