Arnold Jackson, Diff'rent Strokes
The catchphrases and awkward stages of most child stars make us want to change the channel, but there are a few sitcom kids who stayed lovable, season after season. See who we'd love to babysit...for a few hours at least.
When Diff'rent Strokes premiered in the '70s, Arnold Jackson, as played by Gary Coleman, stole viewers' hearts with his chubby cheeks and mischievous grin. We can also thank—or blame—him for making the child star catchphrase a sitcom staple. Thirty years later, a little "What'choo talkin' 'bout, Willis?" still makes us smile.
