[Tell me how this episode of Good Times affected you!]

Janet Jackson won raves for her rendition of a young Mae West. She brought that performance with her to Good Times, when she was cast as abused child Penny in 1977. (((((((((((((((( Leave a comment! Please keep it PG Thanx! ))))))))))))))))))

Good Times is based on Eric Monte's childhood although one of the main characters' name is "Michael Evans", which was the real name of co-creator Mike Evans, who portrayed Lionel Jefferson on the Norman Lear-produced series All in the Family and The Jefferson's

The series stars Esther Rolle as Florida Evans and John Amos as her husband, James Evans, Sr. The characters originated on the sitcom Maude as Florida and Henry Evans, with Florida employed as Maude Findlay's housekeeper in Tuckahoe, New York and Henry employed as a firefighter. When producers decided to feature the Florida character in her own show, they applied retroactive changes to the characters' history. Henry's name became James, there was no mention of Maude, and the couple now lived in Chicago
