The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

COOL 80's DUDE: Mr. T

















I pity the fool" was one of the most popular catch phrases of the 80's. Mr. T had the 80's on lock as the idol of children and grown folks alike. People made sure they were home in time to catch the latest episode of "The A-Team" where Mr. T played B.A. Baracus, the bad-ass soldier of fortune on the run from the US government. His signature look was tons of gold chains and a Mohawk, he was the only Black dude I knew of that was bold enough to rock that haircut. To my knowledge, Mr.T was one of the first Black persons to have their image mass-marketed. His likeness was on EVERYTHING including t-shirts, lunch boxes, cereal, he even had his own doll and cartoon! In the 90's Mr. T's popularity resurged again after he was hired to do several commercial spots for MCI's 1-800-COLLECT service. He proved to be a real fighter after battling cancer and kicking it in the ass. Mr .T has a new reality series premiering October 11th on the TV Land network entitled what else..."I Pity The Fool".
