Prior to The Cosby Show’s 1984 premiere there had never been a Black family quite like the Huxtables on the small screen.
Cliff was a doctor, Claire was a lawyer, and their five children — Rudy, Theo, Denise, Vanessa, and Sondra — kept them busy way beyond their demanding careers. And let’s not forget about all the supporting characters like, the Huxtable grandparents, Kenny, Cockroach, Justine, Peter, Olivia, or Cousin Pam (and her fast talking friend, Charmaine). The Cosby Show was in many ways one big party, that taught us how to laugh through life and learn a little something along the way.
In honor of the 30-year anniversary, take a look at the 10 Best Moments from the show’s run.
