Galoob Mr. T Catalog

In the early 1980s, a gentle, gold chained covered giant came into our households and told us to read the bible and drink our milk and in doing so, captured our hearts. Mr. T was exactly what Reagan era America was looking for, a straight laced tough guy whose look hinted at rebellion.

The ensuing "T Mania" storm was hard and fast with merchandise pouring out everywhere, riding the crest of this was Galoob, who made one of their smarter decisions in captilizing on America's unlikely sweetheart:

America was never the same.

And don't worry, it's completely hack joke free, no mentions of "Pity" or "Fool", that's a promise I stand by.

I wanna know who's choice it was to dress T in that tie-up shiny shirt from the first page. I don't need T midriff. It's kind of weird when you stop and think about it. Mr. T and Punky Brewster have almost the exact same fashion sense (multi-colored Chuck Taylors, spruced up jean jackets, and crazy accessories galore.) Weird...
