Bill Cosby was initiated into Omega Psi Phi Fraternity through the Beta Alpha Alpha Chapter in White Plains, New York during the 5th season of The Cosby Show.2.

Earle Hyman (Cliff’s father) is only 11 years older than Bill Cosby (Cliff).4. Ethel Ayler (Clair’s mother) is only 14 years older than Phylicia Rashad (Clair).5.

Le Beauf’s theater experience won her the role. When creating the character of Sondra, the Huxtable’s eldest daughter, it was decided that there should be another child that represented the results of a good upbringing, hence a daughter in college.7.
