TV Shows - Webster

Webster is an American situation comedy that premiered on ABC on September 16, 1983, and ran on that network until September 11, 1987, but continued in first-run syndication until 1989. The show, set in Chicago, revolved around Webster Long, a seven-year-old African-American orphan (Emmanuel Lewis) whose biological parents, Travis and Gert Long, were recently killed in a car accident. He is then taken in by retired football star George Papadapolis (Alex Karras), with whom Travis had played professional football in the 1970s, and his wife Katherine (Susan Clark), a blue-blooded socialite with no housekeeping skills whatsoever.

1 It ripped off the vastly superior series, Diffrnt Strokes! With none of the humor, but plenty of preaching and sappiness! -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on July 1, 2018, 2:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I had gotten the first season on DVD, and I could hardly get through the first disc. It was entirely too preachy, and the seeming sheer number of "very special episodes" turned me off. -- Submitted By: (bmasters1981) on November 22, 2016, 2:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 RIP Alex Karras. You deserved better than this terrible show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 10, 2012, 6:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 RIP Alex Karras, who starred on this show and was also well-known for playing great defense for the Detroit Lions during the 60's -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on October 10, 2012, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 It used to be alternatively funny and sad the way the truth about Emmanuel Lewis was spun in the tabloids by his parents, who initially lied about his age, claiming he was much younger than he actually was so that they would not have to admit that he was in reality a midget; and then, when it became obvious they couldn't lie about his real age any longer, tried to claim that he was simply 'small for his age'. Of course, he's now a grown man of nearly forty years old, and it's obvious he is a midget, standing less than four feet tall. Why they didn't simply tell the truth about his condition in the first place is beyond me--a lot of the speculation about what was really up with him was certainly much weirder than the plain facts would have been! -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 3:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
