  • Notes

    • The producers during the last season decided to use a mural entitled "Street of Dreams," painted by inner-city youth from the Creative Arts Workshop in Harlem, for the 7th season opening credits. The producers discarded the idea when their lawyers said that in order to use the mural they would first have to get permission from all 63 young artists. Instead, the show developed its own mural which combined some of the elements and used many of the colors of the actual one. The owners of the mural threatened to sue and denounced the show for ripping off the children. Carsey Werner was negotiating a settlement with Creative Arts Workshop, but Bill Cosby decided to replace the theme with the 6th season opening credits. Only four episodes featured the original opening credits, and only a few cities saw this version.
