Diff’rent Strokes

Diff’rent Strokes
The Television Series

More than just a ratings hit for NBC, the Norman Lear/Bud Yorkin-produced Diff’rent Strokes was a pop-culture phenomenon, thanks largely to the wise-beyond-his-years performance of star Gary Coleman.

Audiences responded to the warmth and humorous culture clash between wealthy Philip Drummond (Lear vet Conrad Bain) and Arnold and Willis (Coleman and Todd Bridges), the sons of his late housekeeper whom he adopted. Though Bain, Bridges, Dana Plato (as Bain’s daughter), and Charlotte Rae (as housekeeper Mrs. Garrett) all delivered solid performances, it was Coleman’s charm, his timing, and most of all, his catch phrase “Whatchoo talkin’ bout?” that drew in viewers.
