Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges are the oldest celeb crushes i've ever had
I'm not sure what I did to deserve such a nocturnal delight, but I had the most incredible dream last night. I was apparently in attendance at some sort of 1980s television reunion party. Jodie Sweetin (from Full House) was my host, and I was chatting with Gary Coleman (who I apparently knew from a prior rendezvous) and Todd Bridges. But the highlight was crossing paths with the cast of The Golden Girls, where I proceeded to hug Rue McClanahan while weeping and sharing with her how much the show meant to me.
Conrad Bain was born in Canada and was seen in primetime television for over 17 consecutive seasons. In 1972, was cast as Dr. Arthur Harmon, the liberal title character's conservative neighbor on the All in the Family spinoff Maude. Originally a widower, Arthur married Maude's (Bea Arthur) best friend Vivian, played by another future Golden Girl Rue McClanahan. Arthur was also Maude's husband Walter's (Bill Macy) best friend and army buddy. His identical twin Bonar Bain made several appearances as Arthur's twin. - After Maude ended in 1978, Bain was cast as millionaire widower Phil Drummond on the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes. The father of a teenage daughter Kimberly (Dana Plato), he adopts his late housekeeper's two sons: Arnold (Gary Coleman), 8 and Willis (Todd Bridges), age 12, who are transported from Harlem to Manhattan. A family friendly sitcom, it tackled issues such as racial and class prejudices, drug abuse, kidnapping and was one of the first to tackle the issue of molestation, the latter a ve ...

If u had to be Gary Coleman or Todd bridges who would u be
I watched the first three episodes of Different Strokes today and laughed until I cried. Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges were excellent actors and bought life to the show. Too bad that whomever negotiated their contracts did not consider residual income.

Name this TV show?
Xzibit is like the son of Todd Bridges and Gary Coleman
that's what somebody said...called them Gary Coleman & Todd Bridges
Arnold wants to take up ballet, but Willis thinks it will ruin his brother's reputation. Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges.
Diff'rent Strokes is now airing on Antenna TV channel 39.2 (the television sitcom)(with Conrad Bain, Gary Coleman, Dana Plato and Todd Bridges). Diff'rent Strokes will air tonight from 9 p.m. until 10 p.m. .
Dear Conrad Bain (aka Mr.Drummond), I am sad to hear of your passing. Thank you for the work you did on Diff'rent Strokes. You played as a good man who opened his home and heart to two black orphans, thus showing the world that love is all that matters, Black or White. Even off set of the show, you were still a Father Figure to Todd Bridges (Willis), Gary Coleman (watchu' talkin bout Willis), and the cute Dana Plato. As a huge fan of different strokes, Thank you :)
From the CDC, the 4 signs that you're having a Different Stroke: 1) Conrad Bain 2) Todd Bridges 3 )Dana Plato and 4) Gary Coleman
I doubt most CVHS students would know Todd Bridges or Dana Plato. Heck, probably not even Emmanuel Lewis. But how come they all know Gary Coleman?
niggaz seen Gary Coleman snorting coke with Todd Bridges

I'm watching a 1978 episode of Different Strokes. Here are a few things I noticed. In 1978 at the age of 5, I was the same height as 10 year Gary Coleman. My Afro was as big as Todd Bridges'. I had the biggest crush on Dana Plato(before the drug use). And for her to be a maid, Ms Garrett always got the Drummond kids to do all the work. Did she get paid???
What do you think the odds were in 1993 that Todd Bridges would outlive Conrad Bain, Gary Coleman, and Dana Plato? Ten million to one?
to Conrad Bain, who played the father to Todd Bridges & Gary Coleman on
Conrad Bain DIES Actor Conrad Bain, who played dad Phillip Drummond on "Diff'rent Strokes", died on Monday. He was 89. The cause of death was not revealed. Bain starred opposite Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges on the iconic 80s series. He also co-starred in the classic Bea Arthur series, "Maude". He is survived by his three sons and one daughter. He also has a surviving twin brother, Bonar Bain.
Father In "Diff'Rent Strokes" Dies Even though he played the father in "Diff'rent Strokes," Conrad Bain never was a Father Figure to Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges and Dana Plato . As Bain told AP Radio in 1991, "they had parents of their own." Coleman, Bridges and Plato later became infamous for their personal problems. Bridges and Plato each had arrest records and drug problems. Plato OD'd in 1999. Coleman had financial and legal troubles. He died in 2010. Bain blamed the business. He said "it would take an unusual circumstance for any child to survive unscathed." Before "Diff'rent Strokes," Bain played Bea Arthur's neighbor in "Maude." Bain has now died. He was 89.
Conrad Bain of Diff'rent Strokes & Maude passed away on Monday at the age of 89, Conrad with Gary Coleman & Todd Bridges played on Diff'rent Strokes. R.I.P Conrad Bain.
Conrad Bain, best known for playing the adoptive father of Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges on 'Diff'rent Strokes,' died Monday of natural causes. By Greg Braxton This post has been corrected. See note at the bottom for details. January 16, 2013, 11:48 a.m. Conrad Bain, the actor who played a white millionaire who adopted two African American boys on the NBC comedy "Diff'rent Strokes," has died. He was 89. Bain's daughter Jennifer said Bain died of natural causes in Livermore, where he had been moved to a nursing home a few years ago. "Diff'rent Strokes," which started its run on NBC in 1978 and ended in 1986 on ABC, was popular mainly due to young co-star Gary Coleman, who played the mischievous Arnold Jackson, one of the two sons adopted by Bain's character, the patient widower Phillip Drummond. Drummond was the regular straight man to the wisecracking Arnold.
Awww.loved this show.sorry to hear this. :( I think Todd Bridges and Charlotte Rae are the only original stars still alive from this show. Gary Coleman and Dana Plato passed away before Conrad Bain.
RIP Conrad Bain. Referred to as a "Father Figure" on and off-screen by Gary Coleman, Dana Plato and Todd Bridges, his work here was obviously done.
First Dana Plato, then Gary Coleman, now Conrad Bain...R.I.P. Philip Drummond...Todd Bridges and Charlotte Rae are the last two..
Todd Bridges is the sole survivor now! Phil, I mean Baines was hilarious! I cried when Dana Plato died, and Gary Coleman. Diff'rent Strokes is on Antenna TV tonight from 2100-2300 ET.
I see that Conrad Bain died today ... the father from Diff'rent Strokes. According to my count, Bain joins Dana Plato and Gary Coleman as dearly departed. Todd Bridges might want to keep a low profile for a few days. Just sayin'.
And now Todd Bridges is the last surviving member of the Drummond family. Because TMZ says that Conrad Bain, who played Mr. Drummond for all 8 seasons of Diff'rent Strokes, has floated up to the great, big penthouse in the sky where Dana Plato and Gary Coleman were waiting for him. Conrad's family w...
Aside from being on my TV screen she's hanging out with Gary Coleman.and come to think of it Todd Bridges career.
Can see why throwing to Gates with Leonard on him - physical mismatch - like Gary Coleman on Todd Bridges
I don't see why everyone thinks Bain Capital is such a hard, unfeeling organization. I mean, they adopted Todd Bridges and Gary Coleman, right?
Now that the Olympics are over, does ANYONE watch NBC? ... I didn't think so. Well, I have the solution for "Must See TV" to return! Bring back the '80s (again). This is pure TV genius! Here's Thursday's schedule: "The Facts of Life: The Next Generation" -- pilot episode has Blair (Lisa Whelchel) in conflict with her closed-minded Christian daughter when she decides to marry long-time *** love, Jo (Nancy McKeon). Good old Mrs. Garrett (Charlotte Rae) is there to save the day. "Diff'rent Strokes in the White House" -- Gary Coleman comes back (yes I know he's dead -- so? CGI, baby!) as President Arnold Jackson who takes on issues of the day using the wisdom he learned from Mr. Drummond while his crazy brother Willis (Todd Bridges) causes Congressional chaos! "ALF Returns" -- who doesn't love puppet aliens? Just pick new actors and reboot the series with the same *** scripts. Who's going to know? "Who's the Bossman?" -- add to the night's ethnic diversity by changing the family to hispanic, starring Geo ...
Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges return as brothers Arnold and Willis Jackson for another season of family fun and life lessons. During the third season, Arnold and Willis get held hostage by bank robbers, Mr. Drummond (Conrad Bain) celebrates his 50th birthday in the hospital, Kimberly...
