After James Avery aka Uncle Phil’s sad passing, we’re dedicating this week’s Throwback Thursday to some of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s greatest scenes (according to the uploader).
We lost one of the greatest TV uncle in James Avery, better known by his character name Uncle Phil in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Avery died of complications from open heart surgery at the age of 68 and as well as his role in The Fresh Prince, he is also known as the voice of Shredder in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series. His warm grizzly voice was often associated with the chastisement of his nephew, Will Banks (of course played by Will Smith) but he also offered some hilarious moments and excellent guidance. This video may have more Will than Phil in it but his succinct appearances are enough to make you laugh or quiver with fear. We’re gonna miss you, big guy.
