4. Inspiration for the Carlton Dance

Fans of the show know the “Carlton dance” well and Alfonso Ribeiro, the actor behind the character, is the only one who could really do it justice, or so fans think. According to the actor, “There was a video of Bruce Springsteen and Courteney Cox called ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ and Bruce Springsteen pulls her up onto the stage and she basically does that dance.” He combined it with Eddie Murphy’s Delirious comedy video featuring “the white man dance” and just like that a new, train wreck of a memorable dance was born.
