“Good Times” New Animation Series Set To Premiere This Weekend, Following Official Release Of Trailer


An animated reboot of the show “Good Times” will premiere on April 12. It will be featured on Netflix.

Now, an official trailer for the series has been released. And many fans of the 1970s original show are dissatisfied with the way the family is depicted in the new show. They have called it “disrespectful and distasteful.”

This year is the 50th anniversary of when the original “Good Times” show first aired. It is known to be one of the most essential series showing a genuine portrayal of a working-class Black family residing in Chicago. The animated Netflix reboot is a re-creation that looks into a new generation of the series’s Evan’s family.

But those who have supported the original show were in disbelief that the animation diverted from the positive components of the show. Instead, it mostly highlights negative stereotypes of Black people, they believe.

“A lot of times you use a certain name to open up the door for a new show,” stated Bernadette Stanis. She played daughter Thelma Evans. “That could be what it is. But, I’m sure a lot of people will be a little confused at first because they have to think that it’s us. They think, ‘Oh, my God! That’s got to be Thelma, JJ [Jimmy Walker] and Michael [Ralph Carter].’ And then you come in there, and you don’t see anything like that.”

Stanis did have her voice used to a small character in the new show. “I did a little voice for them….But, I thought it was going to be different,” she said.

J.B. Smoove, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jay Pharoah, Marsai Martin, and Gerald “Slink” Johnson are the primary characters of the new animation.
