Like Yacht Rock, this is another amazing show from Channel 101 that I was hooked on back in University:
The cartoon features main character Mitchell Reynolds (voiced by Jeff Davis) who invents a cloning machine in order to create his own personal Bill Cosby to entertain him. He then begins cloning several more Cosbys to help him around the house, much like in the plot of the 1996 film Multiplicity. However, the quality of the clones seems to deteriorate as the process is repeated, and he decides to stop using the machine, but when one of the clones subversively activates it, he discovers that every tenth Cosby he clones has super powers. At the suggestion of Data Analysis Cosby (the first super-powered Cosby) they decide to continue cloning Cosbys so that their super powers can be used to help the world.
There were only 4 episodes (which were amazing!) before Bill Cosby stepped in with his lawyers and shut down the show. The result was the cancellation of House of Cosbys but from the show’s ashes came an amazing final 5th episode which reflected the creators feelings on Bill Cosby’s reaction to the cartoon. The 5th episode might actually be the most accurate depiction of Bill Cosby given what we know now…
Enjoy the cartoon!
