Little Bill is the latest character to sprout from the fertile mind of comedian Bill Cosby, and both the show and the character reflect the wisdom, outlook, and humor of their creator.
The show is based on Cosby’s popular book series and is developed through research and in consultation with a panel of educational consultants. The show is designed to help kids celebrate their everyday experiences and the people who share them. Little Bill shows kids that what they do makes a difference in the world. By dealing with conflicts encountered in everyday life, the program encourages children to value the love of their family, to increase self-esteem, and to develop social skills.
Little Bill's signature is saying, "Hello Friend!" This saying was inspired by the Hello Friend/Ennis William Cosby Foundation, established in memory of the goals and dreams of Ennis William Cosby, the son of the show's creator.
