This is the original Bill Cosby Show, produced by Cosby himself. Long before he starred as a doctor or a Huxtable, Bill Cosby was Chet Kincaid, the physical education teacher and high school basketball coach at Holmes High.

Starring: Bill Cosby, Joyce Bulifant, Olga James

The series aired on the NBC Network in the early 1970's, and exemplified Cosby's longstanding dedication to positive role modeling for teenagers and young adults. Witty and entertaining, life's challenges still faced by youths today are handled with a common sense approach, and positive messages are delivered with Cosby's trademark humor that never goes out of style.

The show's theme song was written by 26-time Grammy-winner Quincy Jones. Cosby and Jones are two of the most prominent, revered and accomplished entertainers in America. The 52-episodes of NBC's “The Bill Cosby Show” (1969 — 1971) were among the first notable television credits for these two prominent forces that will remain iconic for years to come.
