The A-Team

The A-Team Cast

Series Description

The A-Team TV show was an 60 minute action series on NBC about four Vietnam veterans who were ordered by their superior officers to rob the Bank of Hanoi. When things went awry and they were caught, the superiors disavowed an knowledge of their actions and the veterans were sent to military prison. After escaping, they hired themselves out as soldiers of fortune for any good people being oppressed or wronged by someone. Against impossible odds, the A-Team always managed to "right the wrongs" while managing to stay just one step ahead of the law.

A-Team Trivia

George Peppard probably felt fairly comfortable when cast in his role as the tough guy "Hannibal" as he had served in the Marine Corps. By the fifth season, however, George was obviously ready to ditch the role! When the A-Team was canceled, George was visibly thrilled! He stated on several occasions that he was afraid that the show would remain so popular that it would never end!

The very first episode of the A-Team TV show aired immediately following the 1983 Super Bowl game.

Many of us may be much more familiar with Dwight Schultz in his role as "Reg Barclay" on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Star Trek: Voyager".

On March 31, 1985, during the very first "WrestleMania", Mr. T and his tag team partner Hulk Hogan defeated Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper.

During the opening credits of most episodes, you can see a "Cylon Warrior" pass by Dirk Benedict. Cylons were his enemies as "Starbuck" in the cast of the 1978-1979 series "Battlestar Galactica".

Robert Vaughn joined the series as General Hunt Stockwell in the 5th season. He kept promising that he would help the A-Team clear themselves with the law if they would just do a few more little jobs for the government. He never fullfilled his promise. Maybe you remember Robert Vaughn in his best-known role as Napoleon Solo in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The "B.A." in B.A. Baracus (Mr. T's character) stood for "Bad Attitude" and it sure fit the role!

The A-Team Opening Narrative

"Ten years ago, in 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they did not commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortunes. If you had a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire ... The A-Team!"
