Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
When Will, an inner-city teenager from Philly is sent by his mother to live with his relatives (the Banks') in Bel-Air, everybody is in for a surprise. It is funny how influence can go both ways... Written by

Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons and James Avery are the only cast members to appear in every episode. (Karyn Parsons didn't have any new scenes in the episode "Love in an Elevator," but she appeared in flashback scenes, so she technically was absent from that episode only, although she did appear).

In many of the early episodes you can see Will Smith mouthing the words of his co-stars before his lines come up. See more »
Miss Hilary, please, I'm still exhausted from last night.
Last night? Please. All I asked you to do was a little yard work.
I don't believe blacktopping your tennis court falls into that category.
You are so lazy.

For a couple of episodes, the show was entitled 'The Fresh Prince of Philadelphia???' for when Will decided to stay in Philly. See more »
i have no problem with this being nick at nite's only show!
I think this show is very funny. Will is always cracking jokes. Jokes about Carlton's height, Uncle Phil's weight, and women. Will's low intellect is what makes him so funny. And of course, you have Hilary who is funny because she has the intellect of a rock. And what would the show be like without Geoffrey's sarcasm? The witty butler always has some smart alek thing to say. The smartest people and consequently, the least humorous are Phil and Vivian and Ashley. And even they are pretty funny. That just goes to show you how funny and creative this show truly is. My favorite character would have to be Will because his humor and sarcasm are priceless. Don't forget about Jazz, I always find him to be quite funny and when he gets "thrown" out of the house by Phil, it adds to the humor.
