During the fall of 1991-92 season, NBC gained two hit television shows to anchor their Monday night line-up ("Blossom" aired after "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"). To gain popularity between the two shows, Will Smith appeared in an episode as himself under the rap persona of The Fresh Prince. Several episodes later, Karyn Parsons showed up in an episode of "Blossom", as Hilary Banks. Parsons also appeared in the Patti LaBelle sitcom, "Out All Night" as her Fresh Prince character.

In the first episode ( "The Fresh Prince Project") Will is using a staple gun to put up a poster of Malcolm X. He repeatedly jumps towards the wall and punches the staple gun to secure the poster. Numerous times, when he hits the wall, you can see the wall shaking. See more »

For a couple of episodes, the show was entitled 'The Fresh Prince of Philidelphia???' for when Will decided to stay in Philly. See more »
Starring: Will Smith, James Avery, and Alfonso Ribeiro.
A boy born and raised in the inner city of Philidelphia is sent by his mother to live with a much richer family, the Banks, in Bel-Air. Will's transition from 'inner-city boy' to 'rich boy' is wonderful. The characters always make me laugh. The characters developments are excellent, especially Carlton's. He's hysterical as the 'geeky' type. If you want to watch any show on TV, you better watch this.
