In the history of TV, THE WONDER YEARS is one of the most popular and beloved shows—and now it’s available on DVD for the very first time! Set in the late 1960s and early ‘70s the hit comedy/drama focused on the trials and tribulations of young Kevin Arnold and his family: brother Wayne, sister Karen, father Jack, and mother Norma. Capturing the angst of growing up in suburban middle-class America, the storylines focus on Kevin entering junior high and navigating the rocky adventure of teen years with his “sometimes” girlfriend, Winnie Cooper, and his best friend, Paul Pfeiffer, at his side.
This brilliant series debuted on ABC in 1988 and ran for six seasons. Audiences eagerly followed Kevin’s evolution as a typical teenager who remembered every moment of his transition from childhood with excruciating detail and remarkable hindsight.
One of the outstanding features of THE WONDER YEARS is its soundtrack, featuring original songs by the original artists. Season One includes all the songs as they were featured on the TV broadcasts, with classics by Jimi Hendrix, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, The Monkees, Steppenwolf and Smokey Robinson, plus Joe Cocker’s unforgettable rendition of the Beatles’ With a Little Help from My Friends.
