"GET TO STEPPIN'" and take this quiz! In the world of television, the TV series, "Martin," might be one of the most popular, especially among Black audiences. A comedic loudmouth with a bit of a Napoleon complex, the character and TV series shot to fame during the mid-1990s. How well do you remember the TV series?
While the '80s sitcom heavily focused on the family dynamic, network viewers watched as the '90s moved towards a more friendly dynamic. Before there was "Living Single" and "Friends," there was "Martin," a sitcom that focused on a man, his girlfriend, and their friends.
The show premiered in 1992 on FOX and would go on to become one of the network's highest-rated shows during that time. "Martin" starred stand-up comic, Martin Lawrence, in addition to Tisha Campbell, Carl Anthony Payne II, Thomas Mikal Ford, and Tichina Arnold.
Although the show was recognized for its comic relief from its leading cast, Martin Lawrence received the ultimate praise for his appearance as multiple characters in the show. From his own mother, "Mama" Payne, to a karate expert, Dragonfly Jones, to his obnoxious neighbor, Sheneneh Jenkins, "Martin" had a host of characters that made the sitcom a gem of the 1990s.
The show released five seasons of content. How much do you remember it? Can you remember what Sheneneh did for a living? What was the name of Martin's talk show? Which singer helped Martin propose to Gina? If you can answer these questions, you're ready for this quiz!
