The Cosby Show
The Huxtables are possibly one of America's most beloved television families. The show focused on Dr. Huxtable (Bill Cosby) and his wife Claire (Phylicia Rashad), who raise their five children in an upper-class neighborhood in Brooklyn, N.Y. All the children had their own strong personalities, and their parents often gave them life lessons on how to make life-changing decisions. According to TV Guide, the show "was TV's biggest hit in the 1980s, and almost single-handedly revived the sitcom genre and NBC's ratings fortunes." (Frank Carroll/NBCU Photo Bank)
