Synopsis

Season 1

In the first season, the characters were Mark Cooper, Vanessa Russell, and Robin Dumars. They all lived as roommates in one house that was owned by Mark (Vanessa and Robin were the tenants). In a sense, the early format of Hangin' with Mr. Cooper came across as an African-American version of Three's Company. In the pilot episode, Mark got a job as a substitute teacher for a high school science class (though later in the first season, he got a job teaching physical education, which is what he wanted to teach). Mark was also a basketball coach for the school's teams. Robin was a music teacher at the same high school at which Mark taught. In the middle of the first season, Mark lost the house and it was purchased by the parents of Tyler Foster, who were Mark's neighbors. After purchasing the house, Tyler's father told Mark, Vanessa, and Robin that they were allowed to stay in the house for one month. However, after Tyler told his parents that he liked Mark, Vanessa, and Robin, they decided to let them stay permanently. For the Entourage episode, see Threes Company (Entourage). ... Physical education (PE) is the interdisciplinary study of all area of science relating to the transmission of physical knowledge and skills to an individual or a group, the application of these skills, and their results. ... Basketball is a team sport in which two teams of five active players each try to score points against one another by throwing a ball through a 10-foot high hoop (the basket) under organized rules. ...


Mark had briefly played basketball with the Golden State Warriors but was soon cut from the team. The Golden State Warriors are a professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. ...


Season 2 onward

The show moved to Friday nights in the second season as part of the TGIF block. It also was remodeled into more of a family-oriented show instead of an adult oriented show as in the first season. In the second season premiere, Tyler mentioned that Mark had purchased the house back from his parents. Also in the second season premiere, Mark's cousin Geneva Lee, and her daughter, Nicole Lee, moved in with Mark and Vanessa. Robin was no longer living with Mark and Vanessa. Geneva took over teaching music at Mark's school. Around the time Geneva and Nicole joined the show, Mark's school welcomed a new principal, P.J. Moore (played by Nell Carter), who was Mark's babysitter when he was a child. She was replaced in Season 4 by Geneva. TGIF was the slogan of a prime time programming block on the ABC-TV network. ... Nell Carter, as Nell Harper on Gimme a Break! Nell Carter (September 13, 1948 – January 23, 2003) was an American singer and film, stage and television actress. ...


In 1996, Mark proposed to Vanessa in the episode Will She or Won't She. This episode was a cliffhanger season finale that was aired on May 10, 1996. The following season premiere episode (The Ring) was not aired until June 21, 1997, more than a year later. Vanessa accepted Mark's proposal in this episode. The Ring was the first episode of the fifth and last season of the series. This is a list of television-related events in 1996. ... For other uses, see Cliffhanger (disambiguation). ...

The final season

The last season was 13 episodes long, half the length of most television seasons, and was aired in the summer, when most television shows are in reruns. In addition, this season was aired on Saturday nights -- a move away from its traditional Friday night slot on TGIF.


The series finale (Getting Personal) was aired August 30, 1997. In this episode, Vanessa wrote a personal ad in the newspaper and wanted Mark to figure out which ad was hers and to answer it. Mark decided to answer all ads in the paper, tell everyone to look for the man with the rose, and then not wear a rose. Mark figured that Vanessa would be happy enough that Mark answered her ad and would not worry about the rose, and that the other women would not get mad at him because, without a rose, they would not know that Mark is the one who answered their ads. Earvin knew about Mark's plan and decided to go to the restaurant with the rose so that he could get a date with one of the women whose ad Mark had answered. Vanessa and the other women figured out that the same man had answered all their ads. They decided that the man with the rose would be the dead man with the rose. When Earvin showed up, they all got mad at him, thinking he was the one who answered their ads. The finale ended with a goodbye from the cast.
