Turning Will Smith into the megastar he is today, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is still an immensely popular and radical TV show. Taking a dive into the lives of a rich African-American family, Fresh Prince's realistic portrayals of family is its most endearing strength.

A series known for its hyperactive humour, best seen in the iconic Carlton dance and Will Smith's energetic performance over its six seasons, Fresh Prince could make you laugh and cry within a half hour episode, and never shied away from big themes.

Though very grounded in the the '90s - look no further than the clothing to remind yourself of when this show aired - Fresh Prince is still as relevant and powerful today as it was in 1996.

Also - who could ever forgot that opening theme? Probably the most widely known show opening in sitcom history, just hearing it is enough to get you excited for what's about to play out.
