Eric Monte sued the producers claiming that he did not receive proper credit as the creator of the series. Monte only received a credit at the very end of the closing credits that read "Suggested by the American International picture Cooley High written by Eric Monte". He also claimed that he was promised a credit as a producer. He received an out-of-court settlement. See more »
[Dwayne hangs Rerun's pants over his IV bag]
Fred 'Rerun' Stubbs:
Dwayne, you hung my pants on my dinner.
[Dwayne looks confused but says nothing]
See this here tube, it goes straight down to Rerun's arm.
You mean they're feeding his arm? Does his mouth know about that?

One of the best sitcoms made. It is a shame TV Land or Nick at Nite does not have "What's Happening!!" on their network. This show deserves to be played again, there are so many people who have not seen it. "What's Happening!!" was not meant to be a permanent show on ABC. It went for a trial run on ABC,but viewers like it so much it returned in the fall. One thing I like about "What's Happening!!" is it deals with a single parent in the house hold. When the father comes around the children sometimes have bad experiences with him. We do not see this anymore in sitcoms that much. If you look at family sitcoms today most of them have the two parents. But "What's Happening!!" was not affraid to be different, not afraid to show how a child's parent (the father) could not be a good person. But then again "What's Happening!!" also showed the good times Roger, Rerun & Dwayne could have (getting into unsuspected trouble). This is a great show and I hope to see it repeated on television.
