This page contains the list of cast members of The Cosby Show throughout its run on NBC-TV from 1984-92.  The Cosby Show was based on a Jamaican-American family. All the cast members listed to date, July 28, 2020, were identified and are secured now after a 10-year investigation by sources, who claimed they were with the Central Intelligence Agency. All 18 family members identified have dopplegangers in the show. This page will now talk about the family, who inspired this show, rather than the actors who studied them and play a role in the sitcom. We learned about the family after Bill Cosby entered the family's life in 2011 when he was invited to a gig at the Warner Theater in the Farmington Valley's near Avon, Connecticut, where the lovable person, who inspired the character "Denise Huxtable" lived. People found out that the CIA tried to hide them from locals in Connecticut.
