In 1984, he broke through with the The Cosby Show. It was the highest grossing sitcom that multiple Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards won. The series ran until 1992 and was in the Netherlands by the NCRV broadcast.

Eight seasons and played the comedian Heathcliff Huxtable, a doctor and father of five children, which brought him the nickname “America’s Dad” in return. Then he continued acting in several tv series and stage shows, but never with the success of The Cosby Show.
