'The Gary Coleman Show' Back on Cartoon Network; VH1 Is Calling All Pop-Culture Fans

Cartoon Network is bringing back the short lived 1982-83 animated series The Gary Coleman Show starting tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. It will air 5 days a week (Sun, Tues, Wed, Thu, and Fri mornings) until further notice. So, you'll see all 13 half hours plenty of times. Gary Coleman of course starred on the 1978-86 sitcom Diff'rent Strokes, but this cartoon was based on a TV movie he did called The Kid with the Broken Halo. So you might want to set your VCR/TiVo's or set up that alarm clock to wake up at 5 a.m. for all 13 episodes (each half hour had two episodes, so really 26 episodes, but 13 half hours) as this is a rare shot of watching this series. See Gary's character as an angel trying to help other people so he can earn his wings. For more details check out our Gary Coleman Show webpage.
