Fans of the popular mid 80s show, The Wonder Years, this news will make your day ten times more amazing. Maybe 12 times. StarVista Entertainment/Time Life intend to release, The Wonder Years: The Complete Series, uncut, unedited, on DVD later this year. Not only that, the set will include all the original music, including the opening song, “With a Little Help from My Friends”, by Joe Cocker.
TV Guide called it one of the “Top 20 Shows of the ’80s”, but the extensive use of popular music in the series made securing licensing for a rerelease quite hard and expensive. The show ran on ABC from 1988-1993 and told the story of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) through a series of flashbacks from 1968-1973. Imagine each episode as a Viral Nova headline produced for the small screen. Or imagine Modern Family circa 1960s.
