The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is an American television sitcom that originally aired on NBC from September 10, 1990 to May 20, 1996. The show stars Will Smith as a fictionalized version of himself, a street-smart teenager from West Philadelphia who is sent to move in with his aunt and uncle in wealthy Bel Air in their mansion, where his lifestyle often clashes with that of his relatives.

The SONG:

Sugarhill Gang: “Apache” (1981)

In 1981 the rap group Sugarhill Gang covered the Incredible Bongo Band version of the song on their second album 8th Wonder. In 1995 this version gained new popularity after being featured in “Viva Lost Wages”, a sixth-season episode of the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,[5] as well as a subsequent clip show from the series.

Is it just me or is this the greatest dance ever? You can “Crank Dat” Soulja Boy, Toot It and Boot It, teach someone how to Dougie or do the two step but no matter what, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air created something that has yet to be topped.  The “Jump On It” dance. This dance is a phenomenon to this day!

It’s remarkable how Will and Carlton created a dance move back in the 90s that has maintained its popularity to this day. Not only is it an easy dance that anyone can do, it’s HI-LARIOUS. The angry face and pelvic thrusting followed by a happy jumping, skipping in a circle motion with a finger in the air will always remain a classic. In addition, the Fresh Prince created the Carlton dance that always gave us a good laugh.
