THE ’60s THROUGH THE EYES OF KEVIN ARNOLD
For six seasons, The Wonder Years on ABC 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. Kevin gets by with a little help from his friends Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) and the hyper-allergic Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano).The specific Season 5 paragraph is a rough version, the content is accurate, but here is the updated copy we are now using: Season 5 finds Kevin entering McKinley High, where the social scene centers on the school cafeteria. He goes out for soccer, holds down a hardware store job, and gets his driver’s license. Meanwhile, he and Winnie (Danica McKellar) are seeing other people—who end up liking each other after an ill-fated double date. Best friend Paul (Josh Saviano) spends an R-rated evening with a college coed, and brother Wayne (Jason Hervey) has a girlfriend who might like Kevin more. Arnold parents Norma (Alley Mills) and Jack (Dan Lauria) carry on through a memorable neighborhood Christmas party, an accidental mooning by Kevin, Wayne’s plans to quit school and enlist, and a disastrous birthday dinner with Karen (Olivia d’Abo) and her live-in boyfriend—who she plans to marry. The season is bookended by Kevin’s summer vacation fling and a return trip to the lake where it all started.
