Alfonso Ribeiro Brought Back the Carlton Dance on Dancing With The Stars, and the World is Good Again

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 at 12:00 PM

If you're anything like me (or "Weekly" Chowhound C.J. Hamm) you've got a fondness in your heart for the classic '90s sitcom, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," Will Smith's catapult to greatness (and DJ Jazzy Jeff's occasional catapult to the ground).

But for Smith's co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, his time on the Fresh Prince was notable mostly for his portrayal as comic-relief cousin Carlton:

I was pigeonholed as an actor based on that character. There were years when casting directors wouldn't call me in, because they felt "Oh, well he's Carlton, and that's not right for this role."

Still, a rough period in his career or not, Ribeiro knows what America wants, and he broke it out last night's episode of "Dancing With The Stars." Now, if you'd like, you can watch the entirety of Ribeiro's segment from last night's show here, intro and judging included (Spoiler: He and partner Witney Carson crushed it) here. But if you're a busy person with little time to waste, why wait? We gotchu covered, bae:

You've still got it, Carlton Alfonso. You've still got it.
