Bill Cosby broke television's racial barrier with I Spy, becoming the first African American to co-star on a television series, while winning three consecutive Emmys® Awards. He created and produced the Emmy®-winning animated series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, which began airing in the 1970s and was made into a film in 2004. The show, based upon Cosby's childhood in Philadelphia, was designed to educate and entertain.
The former Navy serviceman's illustrious list of accomplishments includes roles on the children's educational show Electric Company and creating and producing the Emmy® Award-winning Little Bill, which is based on his bestselling book series. Cosby has received the Kennedy Center Honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (America's highest civilian honor), the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, and the Marian Anderson Award. Among his many awards for his stand-up comedy albums are five Grammy® Awards, and eight Gold and five Platinum records.
Perhaps Cosby's greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, about a close-knit, upper-class black family. Cosby said his intent was to portray an American family. Time magazine called the show "an encouraging sign of maturity in matters of race." The Cosby Show dominated the No. 1 spot for years, earning nearly unanimous critical praise. Life magazine described the program as "a gentle, whimsical, warmhearted" show whose "delicious ordinariness of pleasures and tribulations has given millions a fresh, laughter-splashed perspective on their own domestic lives."
