Before They Were Stars: Don Cheadle Gets His Ass Kicked by Ernie Reyes, Jr.

If you grew up in the eighties or early nineties, you may remember Ernie Reyes, Jr., the child martial arts star who appeared in the likes of Red Sonja, Surf Ninjas and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II. In 1986, he starred in a Disney television special called The Last Electric Knight, which was soon spun off into a short-lived TV series called Sidekicks. In this scene, Ernie single-handedly beats up a gang of toughs led by a young Don Cheadle. When I first watched this clip, the line from the old black guy at the end (“You the baddest little dude I’ve ever seen!”) just killed me.
