Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper is an American television sitcom that originally aired on ABC from 1992 to 1997, starring Mark Curry and Holly Robinson. The show took place in Curry’s hometown of Oakland, California. Hangin with Mr. Cooper was produced by Jeff Franklin Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television (it was produced by Lorimar Television for the first season only, and was the last sitcom produced by Lorimar before it was absorbed by Warner Bros.) and also became produced by Bickley-Warren Productions by the third season.
The show originally aired on Tuesdays in prime time after sister series Full House (which was also created by Jeff Franklin and set in the San Francisco Bay area). The show found its niche as an addition to the already successful TGIF Friday night lineup on ABC, and was part of the lineup from September 1993 to May 1996 (spanning the show’s second, third and fourth seasons; airing in-between Step By Step and the news magazine series 20/20), before moving to Saturdays for its fifth and final season3 Comments
