|When a brash street kid from Philly moves to a Left Coast zip code even posher than 90210, cultures are sure to clash. But not to worry. The kid is Will Smith, and he'll have Bel-Air bustin' a move in no time! Smith was already a Grammy-winning rap artist when he shot to acting renown as the smart, wisecracking urban teen who's sent to live with wealthy relatives in an area so exclusive a former President drops in to share some Christmas cheer.
This 2-disc DVD collection features lively bonus material plus all 24 Season-One Episodes, from Will's first day at the country club (which one is the fish fork?) to his first day at Bel-Air Prep School (sort of homeboy meets Harvard). When it comes to comedy, Fresh Prince rules!
Editor's NoteAs the 1980s turned into the 1990s a new star was born when rapper/actor Will Smith donned the guise of THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR. Shipped out to California to live with wealthy relatives, he sets about teaching his adopted family some street-smarts, while his original reason for being there--to learn some old fashioned beliefs and values--rapidly falls by the wayside. His Aunt Vivian ((Janet Hubert-Whitten) and uncle Philip Banks (James Avery) can't control him, and the laughs continue to flow as The Fresh Prince attempts to get everyone else to fit in around him, including cousins Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro), Hilary (Karyn Parsons) and Ashley (Tatyana Ali). Now a legendary part of early-1990s television scheduling, this release includes the first season in its entirety.
