#TheProudFamily is an American animated sitcom that ran on Disney Channel from September 15, 2001 to August 12, 2005.
Originally piloted for Disney's One Saturday Morning, then Nickelodeon, it was eventually picked up by Disney Channel and started airing in September 2001. An original pilot was made and produced by Nickelodeon in 1999 but was never shown to the public resulting in Nickelodeon passing the show on.
It marked the first animated Disney Channel Original Series, and, incidentally, the only original animated series from Disney Channel not associated with, and to be produced exclusively by Disney's Television Animation arm.
Can we talk? I see everyone raving about @blackpanther , and here I sit, thinking - well, isn't the hype machine on overdrive. The movie may be a visual feast for the senses, but let's be honest: who is it benefiting? It sure as heck isn't benefiting the grassroots communities of African Americans, who, just like how they've given @tylerperry hundreds of millions of dollars in ticket sales over the years to watch painfully stereotypical and religion-heavy representations of themselves , now give a melange of black and mostly white Hollywood execs money so they can live in Beverly Hills enclaves where being obsecenly wealthy is a calling in life.
In addition, @blackpanther is painfully reminiscent of the blaxploitation movies of the seventies where they perpetuate stereotypical images of African Americans while staying true to the cultural tone of the time.
It's important to realize that this piece of fantasy won't do anything about the welfare of close to a million African American men who are behind bars because they broke the law trying to fend for themselves in a country mired in institutionalized racism, or the millions of African American men and women that lack opportunities because of something as ridiculous as the color of their skin.
This feel-good fluff piece will only make the largely Caucasian-led movie Old Boys Club feel good, before the lot of us are forgotten in just a few years.
Don't believe the hype, and always be sceptical.
Don’t miss out on history !! @bodytobodyseries coming soon

#WWETV#Atlanta#Repost from @demetria4real - Today for Black History Month let's remember Sanford & Son.
Sanford and Son is an American sitcom that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972 to March 25, 1977. It was based on the BBC Television program Steptoe and Son.
Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catchphrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear and considered NBC's answer to CBS's All in the Family. Sanford and Son has been hailed as the precursor to many other African American sitcoms. It was a ratings hit throughout its six-season run.
While the role of Fred G. Sanford was known for his bigotry and cantankerousness, the role of Lamont Sanford was that of a conscientious peacemaker. At times, both characters would involve themselves in schemes, usually as a means of earning cash quickly in order to pay off their various debts. Other colorful and unconventional characters on the show included Aunt Esther, Grady Wilson, Bubba Bexley, and Rollo Larson.
In 2007, Time magazine included the show on their list of the "100 Best TV Shows of All Time". #sanfordandson#blacktv#blackhistorymonth#redfoxx -

#SisterSister is an American television sitcom starring identical twins Tia and Tamera Mowry. It premiered on April 1, 1994, and concluded after airing six seasons on May 23, 1999. The premise of the show was that the girls (playing characters Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell) were separated and adopted at birth. One was adopted by a single mother while the other was adopted by a couple, although the mother died a short time later. The two accidentally found each other fourteen years later and reunited.
The cast, along with Tia and Tamera Mowry, also featured Jackee Harry as Tia's mother, Tim Reid as Tamera's father, and Marques Houston as their annoying neighbor. RonReaco Lee and Deon Richmond joined the main cast in the fifth season.
Sister, Sister was picked up by ABC as a midseason replacement and debuted on April 1, 1994 as part of the network's TGIF comedy lineup. The show later moved to a new timeslot for the 1994–95 season, but ABC announced that it was cancelling the program due to low ratings and its final episode aired April 28, 1995. The WB, which was still in its infancy in 1995, picked up Sister, Sister to replace the cancelled Muscle on its Wednesday night lineup of shows and the third season debuted on September 6, 1995. The program found its niche as part of The WB's lineup and aired for four additional seasons on the network, with the final episode airing on May 23, 1999.
