Great family entertainment!!!, 27 September 1999
Author: dmm316 from Michigan

This was, in my opinion, one of the best sitcoms of the 1980s. It was funny, yet serious at the same time. It showed how families come in all shapes, sizes, and in this case, colors. I still enjoy watching these reruns whenever I can.
