''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir was based on Benny Medina's experiences with the Gordy family. LMFAO consists of Stefan Gordy and his nephew Skyler. Replace "nephew" with "younger brother" and you can almost imagine Will promoting them. Just look at some of the dorky dancing in their videos; it's all Carlton.

Hilary is 21 at the start of the series and Vivian celebrates her 40th birthday in the second season, meaning she could not have been more than 18 when she had her first child. Let's look at what she must have accomplished between dropping out of high school and running off with a guy and the beginning of the series: she splits with the aforementioned boyfriend, cleans hotel rooms to get back on track, earns a GED, goes to college, pursues and ultimately abandons a career in dance, meets and marries Phil, earns a Ph.D., gives birth to Hilary and Carlton, moves out of the shabby flashback apartment, and gives birth to Ashley. After the start of the series, she welcomes Will into the household, gives birth to her second son, Nicky, and [[TheOtherDarrin changes physical form]].

* Isn't Hilary older than Will? That would mean that Phil cheated on Vivian with her sister. Maybe Will's mother wanted to have a child but his father didn't so she got pregnant by Phil using artificial insemination. Will's father left when he found out what she did.

The opening credits decribe Will getting "in one little fight" (against several, larger guys) in the rough neighborhood he grew up in. This results in a coma, wherein he dreams about a life far removed from the urban hell of West Philadelphia in the 90's.
** Really? [[SarcasmMode i never thought of that]], [[ClicheStorm how clever]].

* Pretty sure this was the intended subtext of the scene - that Will's father was flaking out over having to take responsibility for his son or at the very least, being involved in his son's life.


Considering they have the same skin tone and Will doesn't look anything like his real Dad I wouldn't be surprised if Phil and Will's mother had a one night stand before he was introduced to Vivian that left her pregnant and he never knew and she didn't tell anybody.

Will actually died in the fight on the basketball court in West Philly. The taxi driver is actually God, who drives a "rare" cab. He takes Will to heaven, where he works out all his issues with his wealthy Aunt and Uncle. Will only sees his mother and father on special occasions, because that's when they come to visit his grave.

[[WMG: There wasn't any Job Offer]]

At the end of Papa's Got A Brand New Excuse, Will's Father claims he has been offered a job that would put him on the road for lengths of time and would have to cancel the cross country trip Will had been hoping for. The problem is, there wasn't any. He was just making it up so he wouldn't have to tell Will he was leaving again. Considering he never said what he was doing or who he was going to be working for. He made that up as an excuse cause he refuses to accept responsibility for what happened to Will due to him walking out when he was a kid and cause him to be a slightly troubled teenager growing up.

Also, thinking more about the END of The Fresh Prince, Will is given the mansion to himself and is the last one there as he shuts off the lights. Will shutting the lights off and being alone is him finally realizing that it's time to "move on" after going through some of his life's journeys in Bel-Air.
