This article is for the 1983 animated series. For the titular actor, see Mr. T.

Mister T is an animated action series starring Mr. T as the coach of a gymnastics team who also happens to solve mysteries. Each episodes follows a rigid format involving a closing and opening by a live-action Mr. T who delivers an inspirational message or moral. This format would go on to be applied to other programs like Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos.

The series was later popularly parodied by Saturday Night Live on TV Funhouse segments in which Mr. T and his team of teenage gymnasts aggressively searched for acting work. It was also the subject of an April Fool's joke made by Adult Swim, who later picked the full series up to be broadcast late at night.
