This 1974 Hallmark Card Commercial Featuring Gary Coleman Is Adorable

Gary Coleman
Four years before Gary Coleman would become a sensation as Arnold Jackson in the hit NBC TV show Diff’rent Strokes he could be seen in this commercial for Hallmark cards alongside none other than future voice of Prince Adam and He-Man, John Erwin!

    I was too young to remember seeing this commercial. When Diff’rent Strokes was on the air I was a big kid fan of Gary Coleman. Thanks for the upload.

  3. Glad you liked the commercial KG! It really makes me happy that people are taking TV ads on film and uploading it for everyone to enjoy!

    Though by the way I have never seen this TV ad for myself until yesterday.
