The 10 most ridiculous Fresh Prince storylines


Now this is a story all about how we remembered that there were a ton of nuts things that happened to Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Firstly, we apologise for getting the infectiously catchy theme tune in your head for the day and secondly these are the 10 craziest storylines we could find. Oh and thirdly, we are all really really old.

Check out the 12 most ridiculous Saved by the Bell storylines here

When the Banks family attends a seance so Hilary can contact her dead ex-fiancé, Trevor, the spiritualist gets so frustrated with Will's scepticism that he curses the family with a hex that brings them all bad luck


When Will is challenged to a drinking contest by Jackie's boyfriend, a popular college football player, he gets drunk, collapses in a cemetery on the way home, and is trapped in a mausoleum with four philosophical ghosts


Will becomes the "love slave" of a flamboyantly generous plain student


Will decides to secretly get a job at a pirate-themed restaurant


Philip and Vivian welcome a '60s radical, who arouses the FBI's interest and influences Will and Carlton to take action over the firing of a nonconformist teacher


Will and Carlton accidentally lose their shirts investing on an insider trading tip and take jobs as strippers to recoup their losses and get Vivian's bracelet back


When Will, Phillip and Carlton make a trip to the gas station, they get more than they bargained for when Carlton confronts a suspicious looking clown—who reveals that he is wearing a bomb, and if Phillip does not cooperate (help him get a big break on TV), he will detonate it


When Philip accidentally sits on Nicky's pet rabbit, he encourages the family to attend church to rid them of their sins


When Nicky's school admissions officer visits the house, Philip informs the family that they must be on their best behaviour. However, Will is hypnotized and acts like a 4 year-old child whenever a bell rings


When Will wins a date with Lisa, he gets more than he bargained for. He discovers that she is part of a society, who find that men are the inferior gender and are disrespectful and vile
