The show starred Will Smith as a street-smart teenager from West Philadelphia (born and raised, on a playground is where he spent most of his days) who is sent to live with his wealthy relatives in a Bel-Air mansion (because one day, as he was shooting some b-ball outside of the school, a couple of guys who were up to no good, started making trouble in his neighborhood. He got in one little fight and his mom got scared, so she sent him to live with his Aunt and Uncle in Bel-Air). His lifestyle often clashes with that of his relatives there.
