Watching Jimmy Fallon‘s epic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air open made us realize just how much we missed this show. It’s been too long since we spent some time with Will Smith, the Carlton dance, and of course, the amazing fashion. If you’re living in the past, it’s totally fine because so are we.
The only thing more amazing than the iconic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opening is Jimmy Fallon‘s recreation, “The Fresh Host of Tonight.” It is almost exactly like Will Smith’s version — but dare we say, even better?
Viola Davis is planning another law-related TV show, Melissa McCarthy dips her foot in the fashion world, Prince William and Kate Middleton plan a trip to the Big Apple, and more on Last Lap.
Dancing with the Stars has a strong history of helping former household names regain the spotlight (while wearing spandex). Last night, Season 19 contestant Alfonso Ribeiro took to floor to the familiar sounds of Tom Jones, busting out moves he made famous on ’90s series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
We’re not saying, based on the number of hours we spent in front of the TV following the highjinks of the Banks family, that we love them more than our actual families. We’re just saying, it’s not unusual to see us cry…when we see the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion pic Will Smith posted to Facebook today.
“Got the Holiday season started right with a “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” reunion…there’s nothin’ like spending Holidays with fam!,” the Men In Black III star writes. Snapped at a luncheon for Hilary’s…we’re sorry, Karyn Parson‘s charity Sweet Blackberry, the photo features Will, Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, and James Avery, though tragically Geoffrey and the two Aunt Vivs are absent. You’ll be glad to know we just had our coworkers tie us to our chair to stop us from spastically launching into the Carlton dance over this. Too bad nothing can stop the tears. Or the Carlton! Call security all you want; nothing can stop this dance machine!

The Banks siblings honored their mischievous adopted brother at his ump-teenth movie premiere last night in Westwood, CA. With Tatyana Ali and Alfonso Ribeiro doing little more than television stints since their Fresh Prince of Bel Air days, there’s no question Will Smith came out on top from the 90s hit show. We only wish our girl, Hilary, had joined her fellow siblings for the reunion.
