Too cute? Meet Fido, also known as the "Fresh Pup of Bel Air."

What do you get when you combine TV nostalgia with an adorable puppy? "The Fresh Pup of Bel Air."

A pit bull named Fido was recently adopted by a family in Bel Air and, quite ingeniously, the website The Pet Collective decided to parody the rags-to-riches tale (or tail?).

As an ode to the catchy theme song from the '90s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," the YouTube video features swapped lines to the famous Will Smith-penned rap:

In West County Shelter, born and raised
In the kennel is where I lived with most of the strays
Pantin' and barkin', slobberin' drool
The kennels were small, but the workers were cool
After a couple of tries,I got adopted for good
Said they're gonna take me to their neighborhood
Introduced me to their dog, to see how I fared
They said 'You're movin' with our doggie and kitty in Bel Air'
They waved down a cab, and when it came near
The license plate said pets and adopt in the rear
I jumped in the back and without a care,
I got all excited, 'Let's go home to Bel Air!'

Even actor James Avery (a.k.a. Uncle Phil) makes a cameo in the viral video. Check it out:
