    He was fired from the show because Bill Cosby wanted him to get a haircut and he refused.

    Yeah I like Bill Cosby but he did seem a little picky about things especially when it came to Lisa BOnet. I liked Cockroach him and Theo made a good team.

    I didn't like him on season 2. By season 3 I think he got better.

    I hardly think that Carl Payne would get fired from a show for something as petty as a haircut considering the next sitcom he starred in, Martin, with Martin Lawrence, his character was completely bald. He obviously cut his hair for that role, so it wasn't an issue for him. There must have been another reason for their animosity.

    How can they fire him for that?? Everyone on that show had stupid haircuts. I think Cockroach should have stayed until the Series Finale.

    I liked Walter, a.k.a. Cockroach. It's too bad he was let go. Ihated Theo's college friends. They were such dorks and crappy actors.

    Can you imagine how much funnier the show would have been if Walter was on the entire series??
