Bill Cosby's character in The Cosby Show. Heathcliff was a doctor (an obstetrician if I'm not mistaken?) who had a wife Claire and whole gaggle of children - a really old one, a less-old one played by Lisa Bonet whose name I forget, Theo, Denise and Rudy. Somehow in the later seasons they managed to sneak another l'il brat on as well. His dad was played by some old jazz guy who just died recently. He liked to table-dance and get it on with his wife.
