Different Strokes Season 1 DVD
When pint-sized Gary Coleman uttered that phrase to his TV brother, played by Todd Bridges, audiences were hooked and a star was born. But the show's popularity was based on more than the rise of the diminutive, wisecracking Coleman. Diff'rent Strokes was a pop culture phenomenon that broke through cultural barriers as well. The story of two African-American kids from Harlem who move to Park Avenue to live with a wealthy white widower (Conrad Bain) and his precocious teenage daughter (Dana Plato) not only gave audiences lots to laugh about but gave them something to talk about. Along with their no-nonsense housekeeper (Charlotte Rae), this group was anything but average - but they reflected the changing face of the American family and brought issues of race and class into households across the nation.Special Features 'A Look Back At Diff'rent Strokes' Featurette With All New Interviews From Todd Bridges, Conrad Bain And Charlotte Rae, 'Whatchoo Talkin' 'Bout?'
