Cast of 'The Wonder Years' reunites after 21 years


Beginning in 1988, the eminently lovable Arnold family began taking American TV viewers on a weekly journey to the turbulent late 1960s and early 1970s in ABC's nostalgic sitcom 'The Wonder Years.' On Thursday, the cast of the beloved show reunited some 21 years after the series finale aired -- and the photos of the event immediately took Twitter and the rest of the Internet by storm.

All the key players -- Jack and Norma; Kevin, Wayne and Karen; Winnie and Paul --were on hand, as US Magazine reports, to record some retrospective material for the upcoming release of 'The Wonder Years: The Complete Series' DVD collection. And the actors posted several photos of the reunion on Twitter. (Not on hand for the reunion was Daniel Stern, the actor who voiced the adult version of Kevin, who narrated the show.)

'The Wonder Years' debuted on ABC in 1988 and wrapped up in 1993 with a memorable 'Independence Day' series finale, that ended with the culmination of the long-running love story between Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper that was one of the prime threads that held all six seasons of the series together. The show picked up a slew of awards during its run on network TV, including three prime-time Emmys. Another signature element of the show was Joe Cocker's soulful rendition of The Beatles 'With a Little Help from My Friends,' which played over the opening credits.

Above, see the photos of Fred Savage, Dan Luria, Alley Mills, Olivia d' Abo, Jason Hervey, Danica McKellar, and Josh Saviano (who's now a lawyer and completely out of show business) from the big reunion -- and then take the ultimate trip down memory lane by looking at scores of pics of the show in its heyday, as it took American viewers on a trip down memory lane. (Yes, Kevin is wearing his Jets jacket in many of the pics.) And below, watch a video on the reunion of one of America's all-time greatest TV families.

I don't quite comprehend how good shows with heart like this aren't being produced today. Now, drivel produced by men wishing to have their teenage sexual fantasies come to life on the "tube" dominates the time slots once held by family friendly shows.

Great show that was well written and a had good cast of actors. The main charactor fell between my bother and myself in age. It was original and fun to watch although it usually seemed to have a sad aura about it. It is rare to get such a high quality show that makes you think and entertains you at the same time. Great job to everyone!

The way all the media is going on you would think the only important thing to go on in the world this passed weekend was the marriage of the Trash Kim Kardashian to what's his name. Why does he always looks like he constipated and needs to take one mean dump?
One of his roadies should give him a good stool softner and laxative to try and solve the problem.
