8 Tidbits About 'Moesha' That Even The Biggest Fan Probably Doesn't Know

- Page 1

There was a reason why the sitcom Moesha managed to stay on air for six seasons. The quintessential 90s show had all the elements of a great show, including laugh-out-loud moments to relatable life lessons.


The show also featured a star-studded cast, including Brandy, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Countess Vaughn, William Allen Young, Shar Jackson, and Ray J, each of whom brought to the screen something that kept us tuning in every week to find out what happened next.

Unfortunately, the show abruptly ended in its sixth season, leaving fans with no finale and a cliffhanger that even Brandy hasn't gotten over yet. We may never know the rest of the story, but there other details about the show and its actors that are worth knowing.

1. Brandy hated her character's name


In an interview a couple of years ago, Brandy revealed that she wasn't a fan of the name Moesha.

2. Countess Vaughn and Brandy were frenemies


Just like their relationship on the show, Countess Vaughn, who played Moesha's boy-crazy friend, did not get along with Brandy. The situation was so bad that Vaughn left the show. She later reprised her role in the spin-off The Parkers. It took 20 years for Vaughn to issue an apology to which Brandy responded with nothing but nice words.

3. Brandy was the reason why Boyz II Men made a cameo


The boy band performed at Moesha's college during the final season of the show, but they were only on screen for a short time. Turns out, they made it on the show because Brandy was dating one of the members, Wanya Morris. She was even in one of his music videos.

4. There are four versions of the theme song

There's a good chance that you didn't notice the difference, but the first three seasons of the show each had slightly different theme songs. It wasn't until the fourth season that a permanent melody was decided on.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam.
