''The Wayans Bros.'' is a [[SitCom sitcom]] that ran on Creator/{{The WB}} from [[TheNineties 1995 to 1999]], staring real life brothers Shawn and Marlon Wayans. The series' premise is pretty simple: the two brothers live in a shared one-bedroom apartment in New York. Said apartment is above their father's restaurant, called "Pops' Joint", which the two would visit on occasion during the first season.

''The Wayans Bros'' is generally a sitcom with the brothers getting into silly hijinks and trying to figure a way out of them. If you were a fan of The WB back in '90s, no doubt you were watching this.

** Shawn as well in the season one episode "I'm Too Sexy For My Brother," in which he steals Marlon's thunder and becomes a model. Of course, Shawn's then-girlfriend [[PutOnABus Lisa]] calls him out at the end.

* ActorAllusion: In one episode, Marlon sees Shawn spinning records and says [[Series/InLivingColor "Give it up for SW1!"]]
** There was one episode where the brothers asked their uncle, played by Antonio Fargas, what ever happened to those [[Film/ImGonnaGitYouSucka platform shoes with the goldfish inside of them]].
** In one episode, Marlon says, "I haven't see Dee this angry since they cancelled Series/{{Amen}}!" The actress who played Dee starred on the show.



* TheDanza: Shawn and Marlon.
** Also Pops' actual name is "John," and is played by John Witherspoon.
* DawsonCasting: Dee stated that she was 38 in one Season 3 episode. Her actress was 10 years older at that time.



* HeyItsThatGuy / HeyItsThatVoice: John Witterspoon (Pops) is probably recognizable now as the voice of Robert Freeman on ''{{The Boondocks}}''. This also isn't the first time he and Anna Maria Horsford (Dee) worked together; they were Mr and Mrs. Jones in the ''Film/{{Friday}}'' films.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Season 1 is available on DVD. No plans to release Seasons 2-5. However, it's shown several times a day on {{MTV2}} and on Centric.






* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Astute viewers will notice that the soundtrack of the show consists of slightly tweaked versions of songs from New York-based rappers who were popular at the time.
