William "Bill" Henry Cosby Jr.

Portrayed by

Bill Cosby (classic series)
Keith Robinson (movie)

William "Bill" Henry Cosby Jr. is a member of the Junkyard Gang, and Russell's older brother. In the Junkyard Band, he plays the drums (made from a foot-petal trashcan and a metal box) As his name suggests, he is an animated version of the series' creator, Bill Cosby. (although the real Bill Cosby himself is a live-action narrator)


Like Fat Albert, Bill is usually the voice of reason in the gang, although at times a little more stubborn. As the older brother of Russell, he is often trying to keep his little brother Russell out of trouble, though not always successfully.

Appearance Edit

Bill is an African-American teenager based on Bill Cosby, when he was younger.

He wears a white long-sleeve shirt, blue pants, and white sneakers with blue circles on each side.

In the movie, Bill's shirt is now light blue with a picture of the Brown Hornet, and his shoes are now black and white.
