The Cosby Show’s Theo Huxtable looks back at what drove TV dad Bill Cosby to regularly alter one particular part of the ever popular series. “He’s a composer, so it was his idea to constantly have different versions of the same theme. One opening we had Bobby McFerrin playing all the instruments himself. Another one we had Geoffrey Holder doing the choreography,” Malcolm Jamaal Warner tells host Nikki Woods. “Dr. Cosby was always looking to show various facets of music, because they all had different vibes—one was more jazz, another more Latin; one was vocalese, one was Carribbean. That was his way of bringing different cultures to the literal forefront of TV’s most popular show. And as kids in the cast, we all looked forward to creating the new opening each season.”
