Season 5 Trivia

  • Episode 08 - Carlton's dance near the end of the episode mimics Michael Jackson.
  • Episode 02 - The character Gordy Berry's name is a play on the real name of Berry Gordy, who is best known for founding Motown Records.
  • Episode 13 - Goof (factual errors): Carlton complains that Will left him stranded at the corner of Rexford and Olympic. He says its the bad part of Beverly Hills because it's in 90211. That corner is actually in 90212, not 90211. Besides, there are two bus stops at that corner. Carlton could easily have taken a bus home.
  • Episode 09 - Goof (plot holes): Ken Griffey Jr meets Will at a carnival and teases him about having a woman fight his battles for him. Will and Ken have only met moments before - he couldn't possibly have known about the fight at the bowling alley.
  • Episode 09 - While waiting for Mr. Yoshi (Pat Morita), Will does the same Crane stance that Ralph Macchio used to beat his opponent in The Karate Kid (1984). Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) is the one who Daniel (Ralph Macchio) learned the Crane technique from in the film.
