"No Class." [~Russell's signature putdown]

Russell Cosby is the youngest and smallest member of the Junkyard gang. He is the younger brother of Bill and is based on Bill Cosby's real-life brother.


Regardless of the weather, Russell always wears winter clothes: dark blue coat, red boots, a yellow scarf, and a Ushanka hat. In the Episode Film Follies, Russell is shown to dress like Tweeterbell the same thing happens in Hero time. In the Halloween special he is shown dress like a alien of some sort


Russell has a penchant for "telling it like it is", to wit, making blunt observations (much to Bill's consternation). Russell frequently makes snide remarks, reserving his most withering insults for Rudy when he is being especially cocky. Russell's catchphrase is "No Class."

In the Junkyard Band Russell plays a xylophone made from empty cans hanging from a discarded coat rack. Russel is very little he is a person who says what he thinks in his mind he and Rudy usually bully each other which happens often in almost every episode. Russell usually steams up[anger]Rudy sometimes due to his punch line

But he truly loves hanging out with the gang and loves Bill truly even in the episode "The Bully" he protects him.


  • Russell is the only Cosby Kid in the film to not appear in live action.
