The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a TV sitcom airing between 1990 and 1996 starring Will Smith as a fictionalized version of himself. Built in 1937, this is the mansion used for the exterior shots of the Banks' home, the wealthy family Will moves in with after getting into a fight on a basketball court in West Philadelphia. The public address is 251 North Bristol Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90049.

The show is notable for its impact on popular culture, including the theme song, composed by Will Smith and Quincy Jones III, the Carlton Dance, as well as launching Will Smith's acting career. After Fresh Prince, Smith planned to become "the biggest movie star in the world," by studying box office successes' common characteristics. His major roles in blockbusters including Bad Boys, Independence Day, Enemy of the State, Wild Wild West, Men in Black, and I Am Legend give him credibility to making a claim for that title.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air lasted for six seasons, aired 148 episodes, and still is replayed in syndication.
