"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and "Martin" were both led by charismatic (and goofy) actors: Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, respectively. Smith and Lawrence were so charming that two sitcom stars eventually ended up co-starring in the buddy-cop blockbuster "Bad Boys." "Martin" was a fixture in black households and remains a hit in syndication. The iconic "Fresh Prince" was not only popular among black audiences, but garnered much crossover. Which is your favorite '90s sitcom? 📺

"Roses are red, violets are blue, Jazz and I are black but Carlton what are you?"

Below is the synopsis of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," per IMDB

A streetwise, poor young man from Philadelphia is sent by his mother to live with his aunt, uncle and cousins in their Bel-Air mansion.

"The Fresh Prince" is filled with many iconically goofy moments, led by movie legend Will Smith and an amazing ensemble cast. In the late '80s, when Will Smith was approached to star in the sitcom, Smith was the Fresh Prince, a groundbreaking Grammy award-winning rapper. The sitcom showcased Smith's charisma and comedic skills, launching his highly successful acting career. 

Smith is down for a revival, saying that he'll have to play Uncle Phil, originally and iconically played by the late James Avery. According to Entertainment Weekly's Nick Romano:

“I’d have to be Uncle Phil in that one. I’m 50,” the Bright star, shaking his head, told Graham Norton when asked about a reunion. “Like, ‘C’mon, Aunt Viv! I’m 50. I can’t go out on my own?'”
TV Line reported in August that a reboot was in the very early stages of development with Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment. Fan excitement was piqued, too, when Smith appeared alongside his Fresh Prince cast mates, but Smith assured Norton that the reunion was for a charitable luncheon that the actors do every year.

"Get to steppin'! Step!"

Below is the synopsis of "Martin," per IMDB

Sassy sitcom centering on radio and television personality Martin Payne. Series focuses on his romantic relationship with girlfriend Gina, her best friend Pam and escapades with best friends Tommy and Cole.

"Martin" may not have had the same level of crossover appeal as other sitcoms, but the series was super popular in the '90s and ratings winner for FOX. It was laugh-out-loud funny, not only with the crazy antics of Martin, but the sitcom's with many recurrent catchphrases: "Tommy, you ain't got no job," "my mama's biscuits," "oh my goodness," "damn Gina" and "you go, girl." Yep, "Martin" remains a fixture for millennials thanks to syndication.

Recently the cast reunited, only adding fuel to revival rumors. Martin Lawrence told TMZ:

“Never say never. We don’t know nothing right now, but never say never.”
