For six seasons, The Wonder Years captured the angst of growing up in suburban middle-class America in the late ’60s, as seen through the life and times of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage).
Audiences eagerly followed his evolution as a typical awkward teenager who remembered every moment of his transition from childhood with excruciating detail and remarkable hindsight. From his first kiss with Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) to his friendship with Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano) and the ups and downs of the Arnold family, fans shared in laughter, love, and loss, but above all, wonder.

ABOUT THE WONDER YEARS
The Wonder Years debuted in 1988 following ABC’s broadcast of Super Bowl XXII, and the affectionate look at growing up in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s in suburban America was unlike anything else on television. It was 1968 — the year of Nixon, space walks, Mod Squad, and Vietnam. Enter Kevin Arnold, a sixth grader at Kennedy Junior High School. Set against the suburban backdrop of Anytown, USA, Kevin sought to minimize his teenage angst while dealing with an older, noogie-happy brother Wayne (Jason Hervey), a rebellious sister, Karen (Olivia d’Abo), distant, workaholic father, Jack (Dan Lauria) and doting housewife mother, Norma (Alley Mills). Add to the mix Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano), his nerdy, allergy-riddled best friend, a potential love interest in winsome girl-next-door Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) and narration by an older, wiser, wittier Kevin (voiced by Daniel Stern) to add perspective to the nostalgia, and you have the perfect recipe for TV greatness.

  1. Watching all the kids grow up on the series was great.
    Especially Fred Savage. I loved the interaction with the adults and
    Kids on the show. Very unique show for its time.
    It’s up there with my 3sons, the Brady bunch, the partridge family,
    Eight is enough and family ties. It was a gold standard show

  2. This show brings me back. I just remember my brother and I sitting on the couch binge watching marathons! We loved it! Thanks so much for the chance!

  3. My favorite memory is when Kevin and Winnie fight after breaking up at Paul’s party and Jack comforts Kevin in the garage after he gets home. I cry every time.

  4. i loved it from the opening song and watched the whole run of the show there are so many great moments…but the first kiss would have to be tops

  5. When Kevin’s dad is humiliated in front of his entire company. It struck such a chord for the working life and the increasing bond between father and son.

  6. The scene that always stands out to me is in the episode, “The Accident,” when Kevin climbs up on top of Winnie’s house to tell her he loves her after her car accident.

  7. Kevin’s brother Wayne was one of the best brother’s on Television. Wayne was always quick to call his brother Kevin a butthead, when he was being a butthead! They faught and faught, but always ended up doing right by each other.

    Bonus favorite parts of the show were all of the crushes Kevin had on girls. Especially his teacher Miss White and Becky Slater. I remember when Kevin is trying to get up the courage to pick up the that big phone to call Lisa Berlini! How can you pick just one favorite memory? Maybe that’s why we need the whole series on DVD. To choose!

  8. I wish there were more coming-of-age shows done like the Wonder Years. I really appreciated the character development and the lack of a laugh-track.

  9. I honestly don’t remember the Wonder Years all the well, but I know I liked it. What always stuck in my mind about the show was the girl with three pigtails.

  10. Despite not being alive in the late 60’s/early 70’s, The Wonder Years was just as relatable to a kid growing up in the late 80’s/early 90’s. All those growing pains and awkward years Kevin Arnold experienced on-screen really spoke to me (minus the Jets jacket of course). It only helped even more that The Wonder Years also featured a brilliant cast, lots of laughs, lots of tears, and a soundtrack that is unheralded on network television to this day.

    Watching the show with my family is always something that I’ll hold close, and seeing repeats with them again as an adult really showed me new things I was too young to understand the first time around. One in particular is the scene of the school’s class trip, when Kevin sits on the quickly filling-up bus, somberly watching out the window at Winnie Cooper with her new love, only to be passed on the bus by the gorgeous Madeline, who stops, looks down at him, and gives him a confident glare would stop most men’s hearts. It was a scene that was a perfect example of what made TWY so perfect: it was heartbreaking, poignant, sweet, meaningful, and with just the right amount of relatable humor.

    The icing on top? “God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys serenading this whole coming-of-age scene. As a kid, I knew that scene was special, as an adult, it just cements it home even more.

    In a modern, cold, fast world of cell phones and social media, a scene like that really makes you yearn for those good-‘ol days, or makes you wish you could have been around to experience them!

  11. My favorite memory from the show is the music from that era. I also enjoy seeing the clothes that they wore back then and I always get a kick out of Kevin’s nerdy friend Paul Pfeiffer.

  12. Even though it’s been mentioned, the scene where Kevin visits Winnie after her accident to tell her that he loves her gets me every time. It doesn’t get much better than that!

  13. I remember watching it with my mom and and always singing the theme song together. I can remember thinking back then how “cool” every seemed, but the dad always scared me lol. When I watched reruns as I was older, I realized how relatable the show was and I really developed an appreciation for the concept and especially the soundtrack.
