My, how they’ve grown.
Earlier this year, the cast of The Wonder Years reunited for a momentous occasion: Their beloved nostalgia-com, which was kept away from the home-video market for years (reportedly due to music licensing issues—that boomer-friendly soundtrack doesn’t come cheap), was finally slated for a full DVD release. Months later, The Wonder Years: The Complete Series is finally available… for pre-order.
So, yeah: You’ll still have to wait a few more months to snag the full 26 DVD set, which comes packed in a collectible metal locker (just like the ones at Kennedy Junior High) and includes two notebooks that serve as episode guides, a replica yearbook, and every one of the show’s 115 episodes, as well as more than 15 hours of bonus features. (Phew.)
In the meantime, though, here’s a sneak peek at those bonus features, via this exclusive clip of Kevin Arnold, Winnie Cooper, and Paul Pfeiffer—er, actors Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, and Josh Saviano (who, contrary to what you heard on the playground, did not grow up to be Marilyn Manson)—reminiscing about their time on the show. Turns out that playing a tween-to-teen on TV when you’re the same age as your character leads to some pretty interesting first experiences… and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to chant your real Haftarah portion on network television.
