Prince almost signed a deal with Renuzit that would've made him the Belle Prince of Air Fresheners.

As Smith tells it, Avery was pushing him hard during filming and refused to accept anything less then that final take.  It was the moment he went from Fresh Prince to bonafide actor.

Lord, I thought I was hearing Homer with the guy in the green suit, and it turns out it *was* Dan Castelleneta.  :)

There's an episode of TMNT called Cowabunga, Shredhead! where Shredder gets zapped with a ray that makes him think he's Michaelangelo, so most of the episode is James Avery talking like a surfer stoner dude.

Will Smith can act. The problem is that he makes more money and is in higher demand for being 'Fresh Prince' in cosplay.

He was shredder?  And that clip is an example of what I used to willingly watch as a kid just get my stories involving TMNT fix?  Faaark me.  Thinly and cheaply created toy commercials indeed.
