DA-DA-DAAAA! Ah yes, fond memories indeed. If you're anything like us, the above intro was the most exciting part of Saturday night for many happy years.

But above and beyond his face-pummelling heroics, Mr T was a supreme mangler of the English language, and his short but effective sayings have become the stuff of TV folklore.

When the situation calls for it, simply press the appropriate button and let Mr. T handle things in his own inimitable way. Laurence Tureaud - aka Mr T - himself recorded the sayings for Mr T In Your Pocket, so you know you're getting the genuine article. Besides, we'll whup any sucka that says it ain't!
Hang Mr T In Your Pocket from a keychain and you'll never be stuck for an attention-grabbing one-liner again. We love it when a plan comes together. You got that, sucka?
