Nothing under the sun is original. Everything is inspired or deviated from another idea. The facts are that Diff’rent Strokes appeared on TV in 1978 and Bishop didn’t come about until 1991. Plenty of time for someone who grew up on the show to be unintentionally inspired by some imagery in his past life.
It is entirely possible that this is just a coincidence. but its a little too close for comfort in my opinion. MIND BLOWN
