Deserves More Love
12 March 2020 | by view_and_reviewSee all my reviews

I used to love "Webster"!! Emmanuel Lewis and Gary Coleman were the two shortest and funniest kids on T.V. (of course Gary Coleman was on "Diff'rent Strokes"). I didn't know how Webster ended up with two white parents and I didn't much care. My tastes and mentality wasn't sophisticated back then, heck! I was only eleven when this show stopped airing. "Webster" deserves far more love than it's getting.
