This classic sitcom brought us the infamous phrase “Whatcha talkin’ bout, Willis?” and made Gary Coleman a star. Two African-American kids (Coleman and Todd Bridges) from the mean streets of Harlem move in with a well-to-do, white widower (Conrad Bain) and his daughter (Dana Plato). Laughs abound as the kids adjust to their new lifestyle, but issues of race and family are also brought to the forefront with both humor and poignancy.
