Despite portraying himself as "Will Smith" on the show as being a charismatic, self-confident playboy, Will Smith has admitted to behaving nothing like the title character he played. Smith said that he was, in reality, a shy, awkward teen who was very insecure about approaching and dating girls. See more »

For a couple of episodes, the show was entitled 'The Fresh Prince of Philadelphia???' 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.
