I’ve decided to let the Italians worry about Nelson Mandela thanks to staying up late and following Questlove on Twitter. Eddie Murphy had a hand in a failed 1989 sitcom called “What’s Alan Watching”. Questlove somehow found this and tweeted it out for the rest of us to witness.
Ellen Cleghorne was also in the cast as was Fran Drescher. A token 80s SNL cast member and a woman who made the most annoying sound in the world until Dumb and Dumber. How could CBS deny this brilliance?
Anyone who has seen Coming to America knows that Semi has to do anything Prince Akeem does. Check out Arsenio Hall’s cartoon pilot
Chunky A, Florida Evans and Freddie from A Different World? That’s an Axis of Awesome. Too bad Eddie and Arsenio couldn’t have worked together again and combined live action with a cartoon like Paula Abdul in “Opposites Attract“. That video lasted way longer than either of their pilots. MC Skat Kat was the key like Freedom Williams. Eddie Murphy may have liked working with him especially if he was into scat.
H/T to Questlove.
