Forgotten Classic: Gary Coleman Was a Cartoon Angel

Today, in honor of the passing of Gary Coleman, I present this Forgotten Classic: “The Gary Coleman Show” was a cartoon I used to watch on NBC when I was a kid. Wikipedia says:

The series featured Gary Coleman as the voice of Andy LeBeau, an apprentice angel, who was dispatched back to Earth to earn his wings by helping others. The half-hour series was based on Coleman’s 1982 made-for-TV movie The Kid with the Broken Halo.

Can you believe that? Back in the 1980s, somebody thought “Andy” would be a good name for a black character.
