Apparently, Coleman has now succumbed to his injuries. (CBC)
I never watched Diff’rent Strokes because I have a policy about not watching things titled with unnecessary abbreviations, but Coleman’s wonderfully bizarre cameo in The Simpsons ‘Funzo’ Christmas episode still makes me laugh. His Christmas Carol finish to the show is much quoted in my household every December.
Thanks for the entertainment, Gary Coleman.
