Originally an educator and comedian, Cosby had already tasted TV success on ‘I Spy’ and ‘The Bill Cosby Show’ and as the brains (and many of the voices) behind the educational Saturday morning cartoon ‘Fat Albert.’ During his ‘Cosby Show’ run he also starred in the movies ‘Ghost Dad’ and ‘Leonard Part 6,’ proving his magic touch did not extend to the big screen.

Now: In 2012, Cosby brought back ‘Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids’ for seven new episodes.

The long-time pudding spokesman also recently hosted the kid’s oriented web interview series OBKB, which was sponsored by Jell-O.

Then: Phylicia Rashad was Bill’s comedic foil as Clair Huxtable, lawyer and Huxtable family mom.

To say ‘The Cosby Show’ was a hit would be an understatement.

It dominated ratings during its run between 19 and laid the groundwork for other sitcoms based on the acts of comedians, such as ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Home Improvement’ and ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ While the cast of ‘The Cosby Show’ never quite duplicated the success they had in the Huxtable house, they’ve all gone on to have successful careers.Check out what the Huxtable clan is up to these days.Then: Bill Cosby became America’s dad as sweater-wearing obstetrician Cliff Huxtable.Then: Knight Pulliam was the youngest Huxtable daughter, Rudy, on ‘The Cosby Show.’ Five-years-old when the show began, Pulliam scored her first screen credit at age three on ‘Sesame Street.’ Now: Knight Pulliam played Miranda between 20 on the Tyler Perry sitcom ‘House of Payne.’ She was also one of the stars of the Perry movie ‘Madea Goes To Jail.’ She’s also not afraid of showing off a little skin these days.
