We Are Family

This week marks the 35th anniversary of the premiere episode of the groundbreaking sitcom Diff'rent Strokes. The interracial, blended adoptive family of Kimberly, Arnold, Willis and Mr. Drummond reinvented the family sitcom by tackling racial, class and social issues in a comedy format. But the series' best legacy is its transforming the face of what a modern, American TV family could look like — forever.

BET.com remembers the tragic losses of the show's cast and celebrates this classic sitcom by chronchling where its surviving stars are today.
