What's Happening!!


What's Happening!!
What's Happening!! was first seen in August of 1976 and was an urban situation comedy that came out in the 1970's and joined the ranks of Chico and the Man and Good Times. The series was loosely based on the 1975 movie Cooley High. The series centered around three black teens, Roger "Raj" Thomas, Dwayne Clemens and Freddie "Rerun" Stubbs. Rerun had gotten his nickname because he kept on having to repeat high school courses that he had flunked. The stories revolved around the group's stuggle while growing up in a lower-middle class neighborhood. Others in the cast include Raj's divorced mother, Mabel "Mama" Thomas, who had her hands full with working full-time and handling Raj and his bratty little sister Dee Thomas. Shirley Wilson was the sassy waitress who worked at the local hangout, Rob's Place. Starring: Fred Berry as Rerun; Ernest Thomas as Roger; Haywood Nelson Jr. as Dwayne; Mabel King as Mama; Danielle Spencer as Dee; Shirley Hemphill as Shirley; Thalmus Rasulala as Bill; and Bryan O'Dell as Marvin.
