The show portrays the life of a typical African-American family, who experience many journeys along the way. The two brothers were named Dee Dee and Alfie. Alfie was the cool one and Dee Dee was the annoying little brother trying to be just as cool as his big brother. They also have a brainiac big sister named Melanie, who is the heartthrob of Alfie's best friend Goo. Once banned together, this terrible bunch provided many entertaining situations for the viewers.
