The character of Vivian Banks was originally named Wendy Banks. The name was changed when Debbie Allen was brought in to direct the pilot episode. Debbie Allen's mother and daughter are both named Vivian, and she changed the character's name when Janet Hubert reminded her of her mother. See more »

Janet Hubert-Whitten was credited simply as Janet Hubert during the first three episodes. During that time, the theme song was its full uncut version. From episode 4 onward the theme song was reduced by one verse and the "-Whitten" was added to Janet's credit. See more »
I have seen every single episode of this! It is so great! the whole family plays so good! They are all funny, Jazz too by the way! I still watch the episodes on BBC to tape them on video!
