Good Times Oddities!

Good Times, of course, was the groundbreaking 1970's sitcom that aimed to show a realistic look at life in the projects. Except.....

There were strange age differences between cast members- Esther Rolle was 19 years older than her television husband John Amos. John Amos was only 8 years older than his television son Jimmie Walker. Even more interesting, the "older woman" Willonia was played by Ja'net Dubois who was only 2 years older than the "teenaged" Jimmie Walker.
