Western Animation: The Gary Coleman Show
"Seriously. This is a cartoon."
The Big Game XXIX: Bugs VS Daffy listing this show as one of the sponsors for its halftime show

No, this isn't a sketch or talk show, despite what the title suggests.

In an Animated Adaptation of the Made-for-TV Movie The Kid With The Broken Halo, Gary Coleman stars as an apprentice angel named Andy LeBeau. Once an Episode, he has to go help one or more unfortunate children on Earth solve their problems. With each mission, though, the villainous Hornswoggle would always try to sabotage Andy by tricking him into making the wrong choices, and Andy would have to fix them by the end.

Hanna-Barbera produced the show for NBC. If this cartoon wasn't hard enough to watch back when it was in first run in 1982, or when it was rerun on Cartoon Network, it's definitely hard to watch now that Gary Coleman has actually died.
