Premiering in 1984, "The Cosby Show" ran for eight seasons and quite simply changed television history. Here's the cast in season six, clockwise from bottom: Bill Cosby as Dr. Heathcliff "Cliff" Huxtable, Tempestt Bledsoe, as Vanessa Huxtable, Lisa Bonet as Denise Huxtable Kendall, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Theodore "Theo" Huxtable, Phylicia Rashad as Clair Hanks Huxtable, Keshia Knight Pulliam as Rudy Huxtable and Sabrina Le Beauf as Sondra Huxtable Tibideaux.
No stereotypical stay-at-home mom, Phylicia Rashad's Clair Huxtable was quick to call attention to husband Cliff's foibles. Their differences were often aired, and settled, on the living room couch, or in the bedroom.
