Cosby Sweater Extravaganza

Before there were Hammer Pants and dresses made of meat, there were Cosby sweaters. If you were alive when the show first aired, you probably owned one. If you weren’t, you might wonder WHY everyone owned one. For the nostalgics and the skeptics, a feast of Cosby Sweaters!

To start, let’s all acknowledge the debt of gratitude we owe to the genius behind The Cosby Sweater Project. Thank you for preserving these for future generations!

The man himself can’t help but talk about the sweaters he made famous. Unironically. I can’t decide if those are ducks or yellow hearts. A little help?

This guy is so cool, he machine-knitted a sweater of Bill Cosby wearing that sweater. It’s very meta!

Then the internet starts getting creative! First with animation…

Then with bunnies…

Then with Snoop Dogg.

And while we like how it became a family affair,

Sometimes the original is still the greatest, and nothing beats Bill Cosby, Cliff Huxtable himself, in the sweaters he made both famous and infamous!

If you haven’t quite gotten your fill of sweaters yet, now would be the perfect time to head to The Cosby Pinterest Challenge,, where this week’s feature is Cosby sweaters!
