Hope, Lewis & Shields

The first acting job Emmanuel had that wasn't in a commercial was the part of The Changeling Boy in the Joseph Papp New York Shakespeare Festival Production of *The Midsummer Night Dreams*. Emmanuel also guest-starred on such TV talk shows as "The Tonight Show" and "The Phil Donahue Show" but "Webster" was Emmanuel's first major role on a TV series.

Lewis was the first child spokesperson for the Burger King Whopper. His Colgate tooth-paste commercial can be seen in the movie "Splash" when Madison the mermaid goes to the mall (it can be seen on the TVs in the background).

Emmanuel also became one of the biggest stars in Japan as well as America. He made three personal-appearance tours in that country, and a record he made there shot to the top of the charts. He even made a television movie for Japanese television called Samurai in New York.

Emmanuel has done guest spots on "The Love Boat", "In the House", "Family Matters" (as himself), "Malcolm & Eddie" (as himself), and "Moesha" (in the episode "The Short Story"). He also did a 1985 TV movie called "Lost in London" which co-starred Ben Vereen. He also did "The New Adventures of Mother Goose Special" with Sally Struthers.

The 3' 6" tall (he says there is no known medical reason for his still-short stature and has grown 6" since the age of 12) Lewis graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a theater arts degree in 1997. He is said to be looking for another TV series and to possibly go into directing. He is good friends with Marc Price (Skippy on "Family Ties" and now a stand-up comedian) and has gone on tour with him and done various promotional appearances with him.

He founded his own musical label called Emmanuel Lewis Entertainment. He is a practitioner of taekwondo.

Speaking of Lewis Carroll, what exactly is this JUBJUB Bird all about anyway, hmm?
