Clark said of the above
"It's been mentioned before but sometimes we're black. Again, don't let it throw you."

Clark touched on The Unbelievables uncanny ability to appear black when the need arises. It's been a terrific boon for us over the years, aiding us in countless cases.

But it's a skill which hasn't come easy for us. In the beginning there was a lot of work involved ...

I'm not going to note who's who in this picture. It's pretty obvious all three of us
were in the delicate, formative stages of black alter egoness.

Here's an example of our "look" back in the day.
While the style was greatly improved, our "moves" needed improvement.

It takes time, effort and fortitude to master being black, especially when the need for undercover work comes calling. It's not a matter of concentrating on the role at that point. When you're in the thick of it, you can't worry about stepping into character convincingly. It's got to come naturally.

Jeff was the first of us to "get down with his bad self" ...

Through trial and error, we found Clark did his best work
when he was working with one of the ladies.
(Hello, Ladies!)

Over the years, however, we've been able to perfect every aspect of our characters.

It was just a matter of time (and practice) before we had all our ducks in a row ...

... and it wasn't long before we became masters of our craft.
So good, in fact, we once rented out our services as body doubles
for Max Julien, Richard Pryor and Roger Mosley.

Some of our many "exploits of color" are legendary. Jeff and Clark will regale you ...
