The Cosby Show
Played by Bill Cosby
The feisty father of five, Dr. Cliff was like a big kid himself, ugly sweaters and all. And he led one of TVs first upper-middle-class African-American families. And he remains iconic: Last month, comic commentator Wyatt Cenac declared on The Daily Show that Barack Obama was Cliff Huxtable. Theyre both married to hot lawyers, they both work out of offices on the west side of their houses, and both have unrealistically cute daughters.
