About FrankieEdit

Frankie Santana was a Puerto Rican special effects expert who helps the A-Team during the series' final season. He was blackmailed into joining the team by Gen. Hunt Stockwell (Robert Vaughn) after he and Murdock helped the team escape the firing squad.

The character's early script name was "Frankie Sanchez", which filtered through to a number of coverage material. The character was also often given the nickname "Dishpan Man" (or simply "Dishpan") in much of the series' coverage, but while he was introduced as this in the fifth season opener, itself called "Dishpan Man", this nickname was very seldom used afterwards in the actual series.
