Gary Coleman died this morning in a Utah hospital after suffering a coma. Like so many of us who grew up in the 80’s, I have fond memories of Diff’rent Strokes and Coleman’s wise-cracking little kid. Such a strange, misguided, yet eminently addictive show about a rich white family adopting two black kids from the hood. Gawker compiled a feature with clips spanning Coleman’s television career.
Coleman was 42.
