The eldest Huxtable daughter Sondra was an afterthought. Sabrina Le Beauf beat out Whitney Houston for the part based on her theater experience.

Rudy was originally going to be a boy, but a suitable boy actor could not be found. The auditions were then opened up for girls.

ABC rejected the show.

Phylicia Rashad is only 10 years older than her on-screen daughter played by Sabrina LeBeauf.
