The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was more than just a sitcom. It was a lifestyle. Since knowing every word of the opening rap is part of our lives now, here are the other 16 crucial lessons that we learned simply from watching the episodes over and over again. We just wouldn’t have picked them up anywhere else. Thank you Will Smith!

1. How to inform someone that they are being impolite

To the point and passive aggressive. OWN IT.

2. How to look cool in a fight

"Mind your business, that's all! Mind your business!"


3. To pay attention or you might miss things

The small things...

4. ‘Short’ jokes are hilarious

Carlton was small for a reason.

5. Sometimes you might not be happy in your career

6. But you can communicate your feelings eloquently without throwing a tantrum

7. ALWAYS have a pick up line locked and loaded

8. Men should treat women with RESPECT

Preach Carlton!

9. Have a calm reaction to everything life throws at you


10. Confidence is key

11. How to recover from a slip up

12. How to DANCE!

Whether it's to Tom Jones, Jump on it or some soul, Fresh Prince taught us those essential moves.


13. People love sassy

14. Everyone is selfish from time to time

15. Always have someone to blame for your problems

Nothing is ever your fault, obviously! Pssh.

16. Finally, Will Smith should be universally adored

In conclusion, we have so much to thank the Banks family for! Were you a big fan of the show? Tweet us @sofeminineUK
