Mr. T and Em­manuel Lewis in a Christ­mas Dream

StarMetro Toronto - - TELEVISION -

If you want to see a spe­cial so atro­ciously bad it’s good, you need to watch Mr. T and Em­manuel Lewis’ Christ­mas Dream from the mid‘80s. Yes, at one point in history, Em­manuel Lewis and Mr. T were big enough stars to war­rant hav­ing their own prime­time Christ­mas spe­cial. Lewis, rid­ing high on Web­ster fame, plays a kid who’s lost all of his hol­i­day spirit. Mr. T plays one of Santa’s lack­eys who at­tempts to re­store Lewis’ fes­tive cheer. The singing is as ter­ri­ble as you can imag­ine, and the spe­cial’s one no­table guest, ma­gi­cian David Cop­per­field, comes across as a creep. It’s a cheesy train wreck, but you can’t look away. You can find clips of it on YouTube.
