Music Monday--The Cosby Show

The Cosby Show is one of my all-time favorite TV shows, and viewing early episodes years later, it's amazing to see how well the show holds up. The fashion is obviously dated, but the writing, acting and jokes are really timeless.

Music was a big part of the show, as Cosby was a big jazz fan and had numerous guest stars from jazz and musical greats. This clip presents the classic lip-sync rendition of "The Night Time is the Right Time" by Ray Charles as done by the Huxtables for Cliff's parent's 49th anniversary:

The next year, for the grandparent's 50th, they did a little James Brown. Theo and Rudy pretty much steal the show:

Ah....memories. We would watch that show while mom would cook dinner. Stephen and I still watch reruns when we come across them on TV.

You are absolutely right about the show. It’s one of those shows which I will remember for always. The humor that the cosby show episodes have is just incomparable. It really is a classic show and will always stay at the top of my all time favorites.
