The Gary Coleman Show


For three months in 1982, we had The Gary Coleman Show. The Saturday morning cartoon was based on the made-for-TV movie The Kid with the Broken Halo.

In the cartoon, Andy LeBeau, an apprentice angel, was sent back to Earth to earn his wings by helping others. In each of the 13 episodes, Andy helped a child in need and resolve his problem. Each 30-minute episode consisted of two 15-minute segments.

The Gary Coleman Show aired on NBC from September 18 to December 11, 1982.
