If you’re as obsessed with Stranger Things as we are, then you know not only is it a totally amazing show, but that the cast is beyond perfect, too.



You probably also know that we think Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) is basically the most adorable kid everrrrrrr.


Well, believe it or not, there was a time Gaten was EVEN CUTER than he is now – I know, I know, this sounds impossible, right? Welp…

Check out this photo of a baby (okay, more like TODDLER, but still!) Gaten in a pink kangaroo costume.

UH and hangin’ with OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN NO LESS?!?!?

How is this adorableness even possible?!

The photo is from his time in Broadways’ Priscilla Queen of the Desert, back in 2011.

Here’s Dustin just casually enjoying a cupcake with his co-star Sebastian Thomas, too.

Gaten, has actually had a fairly successful run on Broadway before his iconic turn as Dustin on Stranger Things.

Here he is taking a bow for his stint in Les Misérables in 2014.

Obviously, we think Gaten is just the greatest, and clearly he has been FOREVER.

So, what do you think Olivia? Winner of the cutest-ever award?!
