Why We Need To Know:

“Good Times” was a Lear spin-off from the tv show “Maude,” also a spin-off of “All in the Family.”

 

“Good Times” was created by Mike Evans — the original Lionel on “The Jefferson’s” and Eric Monte, the man also responsible for “The Jefferson’s,” “What’s Happening,” the tv version of his screenplay, “Cooley High.”

 

When “Good Times” premiered February 8, 1974, it was the first tv sitcom featuring a two-parent black family.
