This year will not only mark the return of Roseanne to television but will also mark the 30th Anniversary of the original ‘Roseanne’ television series! According to Yahoo TV it was on Oct. 18, 1988, 30 years ago, that “Roseanne” debuted, introducing viewers to the most relatable working-class family since the Kramdens and the Nortons tried to eke out a city living in “The Honeymooners.

One of the most interesting tidbits divulged in this tribute to “Roseanne” was the fact that at some time during the series original nine season run,  most members of the cast sported a chicken t-shirt very similar to the one featured here.  It turns out that not only is the symbolism of the shirt one of the topics Roseanne Barr is asked about most often, in some circles it has become an icon for for what is sometimes called the “Pretty Ugly” movement.  According to Barr “The chicken shirt, it was just the ugliest shirt I ever saw, and we had this bet between us, the actors,” she said. “If you show something really bad on TV, it takes off. It was like another rebellious artistic statement, that it looks like art when it’s on TV.”
