(USA TODAY) "We love you. We love Kelly. So excited that you're going to join us a couple days a week," Robin Roberts told Michael Strahan after he strutted his way onto the Good Morning America set Tuesday morning at just after 8 a.m. ET
It was a quick visit before he settles into making regular appearances, and the team presented him with some gifts.
George Stephanopoulos presented him with an old-fashioned alarm clock.
"It is set with the right time?" asked Strahan.
Lara Spencer said he is a "super-sized personality who deserves a super-sized coffee cup" and gave him a giant mug. "This is the only coffee cup that makes my hands look small," said Strahan with a smile. "If I drink all this, there will be one heck of a good morning, America."
Robin then threw it to Strahan, who introduced Dancing With the Stars newly booted cast-offs, Cody Simpson and his partner Witney Carson. They pushed in a wheelbarrow filled with Stahan's favorite snack, Sour Patch Kids. "Sugar and coffee in the morning! Good Morning America!" said Strahan, holding his goodies high above his head.
He stuffed a bunch of the candy along with the clock into his mug and said he had to head uptown to do his Live with Kelly & Michael show. "I'll see you guys soon."
"Next week," noted Stephanopoulos.
