“NIGHT TIME IS THE RIGHT TIME” Ray Charles
Thanksgiving is a time for family gathering, when young and old share quality time together. TV’s ultimate family, the Huxtables, planned a special moment for their family get together. At their grandparents 49th anniversary, the Cosbys were dressed to the nines, as they came down the stairs, a retro-version of a flash mob performance stunned the grandparents. Performing a lip-sync version of Ray Charles bluesy classic, “Night Time Is The Right Time”, Bill Cosby, Malcolm Jamal Warner, and little Keyshia Knight Pulliam perfected nailed Ray’s signature vocals as the rest of the Cosby women danced backup. This classic TV moment was recreated last year in a Saturday Night Live skit featuring the Obamas and Joe Biden.
“I GOT THE FEELING” James Brown
In Season 2 of The Cosby Show, they took on Ray Charles. For Season 3 for their grandparents Golden 50th wedding anniversary, the Huxtables performed a special version of James Brown’s funk classic, “I Got The Feeling”. Theo’s dancing, the girls playing invisible horns, and Cliff’s facial expressions and his howl are all legendary. But the showstopper is Rudy’s “Baby, Baby, Baby!!!” If you’re not feeling good after watching these clips, please have another drink. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
