Animated series[edit]

The film's lead character, Andy LeBeau, was spun off into a Hanna-Barbera-produced animated series called The Gary Coleman Show which aired on NBC during the 1982–83 season. Coleman provided the voice of Andy, an apprentice angel dispatched back to Earth to earn his wings by helping others and who also dealt with an antagonist named Hornswoggle, a well-dressed demon with purple skin, black hair and a goatee.
