Gary Coleman was My television star! Every Thursday night, my younger brother and I, tuned in to watch "Arnold, Willis and Kimberley" on NBC. He was funnie and I loved him the same way I enjoyed the "Little Rascals". To me he was much more than a catchphrase. He deserved more than the caricature they turned him into.
At one time Gary Coleman was literally a cottage industry! People paid their mortgage's because they worked on a project that he starred in. I remember one movie where Gary could pick the winning horses and everyone got rich. He played an abandoned kid that lived in the Subway terminal. The plot was so ludicrous that even as a kid we knew it wasn't plausible. But we watched it and we loved it! Why? Gary! Gary was funny and Gary was cute. That's why. There had never been one like Gary before and there ain't been one since.
PS. Extra on NBC did a nice, respectable job, staying away from the nastiness! Good Job!
Sleep well, Gary and Thanks! May the God (IAM) smile and say well done!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
