Limited Edition DVD Box Set Every Memorable Episode in One Huge Collection - Lowest Price Online Guaranteed Webster is an American situation comedy that premiered on ABC on September 16, 1983, and ran on that network until September 11, 1987, but continued in first-run syndication until 1989. It has largely been compared to NBC's Diff'rent Strokes, often as a feeble attempt to compete with the legendary program. The show, set in Chicago, revolved around Webster Long, a seven-year-old African-American orphan (Emmanuel Lewis) whose biological parents were recently killed in a car accident. He is then taken in by retired football star George Papadopolis (Alex Karras), with whom his late father played professional football in the 1970s, and his wife Katherine (Susan Clark), a blue-blooded socialite with no housekeeping skills whatsoever. Webster referred to George as his given name, 'George'. He referred to Katherine as 'Ma'am'. This disturbed Katherine enough to ask Webster about it, wondering why he referred to her so formally. Webster explained that 'Ma'am' was as close as he could come to calling somebody besides his mother 'Mom'. Webster also had an uncle, played by Ben Vereen, who had issues with Webster living with a white couple and sought to adopt him and take him to live in Chicago's South Side. Starring: Emmanuel Lewis Alex Karras Susan Clark Henry Polic II
