Mr. T and Emmanuel Lewis in a Christmas Dream
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.
