John Amos returned to “Good Times” for the 2019 live primetime special. Who did he play?
Esther Rolle first played Florida on the “All In the Family” spinoff “Maude.” She appeared in 33 episodes before she got her own spinoff!
John Amos appeared on “Maude” three times before “Good Times” spun off. His character was named Henry and he was a firefighter!
Esther was 53 and John was 34 when "Good Times" began—a 19-year age difference! Producers initially tried to make John look older with graying hair.
James’ friend Ernie (Thalmus Rasulala) talks about growing up together in Mississippi. James mentions that his family were poor sharecroppers.
Florida and James celebrated their 20th anniversary in October, 1975. When the show began in February of 1974, they had been married for 18 years!

In the episode “The Weekend," James and Florida celebrate their 20th anniversary at a lakefront cabin lent to them by James’ friend Charlie.
J.J. is James Evans Jr. aka “Junior.” Thelma is his baby girl, thus “Baby Girl.” And little Michael is the most woke, so he's the “Militant Midget.”
John’s last episode was the “The Rent Party” for Weeping Wanda, which ends with James telling the piano player to “Hit It, Willie" as everyone dances.
43 years after creative differences led to his departure, Amos returned as Alderman Davis. “It was like everybody grew up,” Bern Nadette Stanis said.
