Vivian Banks — The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Though we didn't see Vivian Banks working much when The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was on TV, we knew Carlton's mom and Will's aunt was one highly successful women. A retired doctor, she went back to school and earned her PhD at UCLA, eventually showing up as a substitute teacher at the boys' school.
