The series featured Gary Coleman as the voice of Andy LeBeau, an apprentice angel, who was dispatched back to Earth to earn his wings by helping others. The half-hour series was based on Coleman's 1982 made-for-TV movie The Kid with the Broken Halo. In each episode, Andy was dispatched to help a child in need and resolve his problem. The antagonist in each episode was Hornswoggle, who tried to make Andy's mission more difficult, usually by getting him to make the wrong choice or by otherwise complicating the mission. It was up to Andy to correct whatever mistakes he made and foil Hornswoggle's plans.
The character of Haggle, voiced by Geoff Gordon, was the first cartoon character to rap.[original research?] Gordon was an NBC page when he was cast. Each 30-minute episode consisted of two 15-minute segments. Thirteen 30-minute episodes were produced. Jennifer Darling, who played Lebeau's supervising angel Angelica, uses her nasal voice in a similar fashion to that of a future role, Ayeka of Tenchi Muyo OVA.
