The catch phrase that made Gary Coleman famous as Arnold on Different Strokes is once again on the tube. In my local area there is a television station called Peachtree TV and it is showing the Different Strokes reruns. I have been watching them lately and I haven’t seen these shows since they was on in the 1980’s. It’s amazing to watch these episodes and see just how out-dated some of the lingo and talk is for today’s times. The show lost some of its luster as the actors and actresses got older, but when they were young it was magic back then. I even think Webster was a spin-off of Different Strokes and how you had a black kid with white parents. Webster was played by Emanuel Lewis and he makes his home in Georgia. I just wonder if Webster has found the time to tune in and see some of these episodes of Different Strokes.
I never seen it as a kid, but Conrad Bain the guy that played Phillip Drummond was really a boring dad. He really wasn’t that much fun as a father or even cool back then, but you still see Arnold and Willis look up to him like a real dad. I don’t think its very believeable for them to show him so much respect and he really isn’t even that hip of a daddy. I still like to watch these old episodes though and it takes me down memory lane again.Click here for reuse options!
