@watchthis23ny He would be hot if he swallowed a couch…
The best episode was the one where mama caught all the guys shootin’ dice on the floor. Classic.
I truly miss those silly Negro comedies of the 70′s. Those three cantankerous fools,Roger,Dwayne and Rerun and their crazy shenanigans. Although Shirley scared the living shit out of me. I had a bad acid trip in the 70′s where I imagined Shirleright y was chasing me through a dark hallway and when I closed a door she’d chew through it…..quite chilling.I’ll bet Mama and Shirley smelled funny.
@watchthis23ny I laughed all last night just thinking about that comment!
The funniest episode I ever saw of “What’s Happening” was when the L. A. Dream Team made an appearance on the show, and beforehand, Raj and Duane was trying to rap. Listening to Raj and Duane trying to rap was just too much!
@haroof He sure did. That man was a genius! His version is a little longer and had a harmonica solo.
Wow did Henry Mancini really compose this music???
0:37 Hey hey hey! It’s faaaaat Shirley!
i like that..boung, boung, boung lol
This opening reminds me of those people that died at Jonestown.
“For D right price!”

lol i use to love this show
the intro song is the bomb
intro was the shit someone sample this!!! : D
@watchthis23ny ROTFLMWAO! I’m going to try it sometime!
Mama had some big boobies!!!!
@wallofvideo very small he was one of the young tribesman with young Kunta Kinte, about to be circumsized and learning to be men
@themostrandomchick24 Haha Or the classic stuff like “Mama I can’t breathe!” You can’t forget Dwaynes classic
Rerun: So you like the idea Dwayne
Dwayne: Uh Huh
Rerun: So you want money too
Dwayne: Uh Huh
Rerun: It’s settled then, you will go talk to him for us
Dwayne: Unh un!
@wallofvideo Also, Cooley High Harmony was the name of The Debut Album by Boyz To Men and what I loved about this show was that it showed that there was a time where South Central LA was a safe Blue Collar Lower Middle Class Community.
@wallofvideo Danielle Spencer became a Vet. Haywood Nelson is a Computer Consultant. Ernest Thomas worked with Spike Lee on several of his Movies. Fred Berry, Mabel King, and Shirley Hemphill are all dead. Here’s another fun fact. This show was based on a Movie called Cooley High that Steve Krantz produced in 1975 that was called The Black American Graffiti. Also, Steve’s Wife is Romance Novelist Judith Krantz (Princess Daisy), and he had the chance to do Grease but changed his mind.
its fun to remember
this is so cheesy it isn’t even funny, oh wait, yes it is!
i think ernest thomas had a small role on “roots.” and mabel king was sometimes one of the judges on the “gong show.” but i don’t remember seeing any of the other “what’s happening” actors on any other 70s tv shows. they were all very talented, so i’m not sure why they didn’t get more roles.
