Good Times was that rare hit show which was a spin-off of a spin-off (TV's All In the Family begat Maude, which in turn spawned Good Times on CBS). Airing for five highly-rated seasons (1974-1979), Good Times altered America's cultural landscape by tackling topical, often controversial issues from a uniquely African-American perspective, while delivering heart-warming laughs. Focusing on a poor but proud family in the Chicago projects, the Evans clan-headed by James (John Amos) and sharp-tongued mother Florida (Esther Rolle)-struggled against adversity while keeping their heads held high, striking a chord with audiences of all colors. The trailblazing show also made a star of jive-talkin' comedian Jimmie Walker whose catchphrase Dy-No-Mite! became part of '70s pop culture.
Starring: Esther Rolle (Driving Miss Daisy), John Amos (Die Hard 2) and Jimmie Walker (Airplane!)
