Pryor's Place is an American children's television series that aired for one season in 1984 on CBS. The live-action series starred comedian Richard Pryor as himself.[1]

Overview

Despite a reputation for profanity from Richard Pryor, Pryor's Place was aimed at children. Like Sesame Street, Pryor's Place featured a cast of puppets...hanging out and having fun in a friendly inner-city environment, along with several children and characters portrayed by Pryor himself.

The theme song was performed by Ray Parker Jr.[2] of Ghostbusters fame, who also appeared in the show's opening credits. The show was also fitted with a laugh track. An uncredited Rick Dees announced the commercial-bumpers for each show.

Pryor's Place was broadcast on Saturdays on CBS (at 11:30 AM Eastern/10:30 AM Central) from September 15 to December 8, 1984, with repeats airing until June 15, 1985.[3] Four VHS videotapes were released between September 1997 and June 1998 by Rhino Entertainment, each containing one episode of the series.[4][5][6][7]
