    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.

    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.

    @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.

  22. laminage says:

    @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

  24. FezzFix says:

    this is so cheesy it isn’t even funny, oh wait, yes it is!

  25. wallofvideo says:

    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.
