Entertainment Weekly recently posted a Twitter picture from Danica McKellar of her with her two ‘Wonder Years’ co-stars, Fred Savage and Josh Saviano. They then compared it with a promo picture of the three of them as Kevin Arnold, Winnie Cooper, and Paul Pfeiffer from the beginning of the series’ run.
The series began in 1988, but it took place twenty years earlier.
The series depicts the social and family life of a boy in a typical American suburban middle-class family from 1968 to 1973, covering the ages of 12 through 17. Each year in the series takes place exactly 20 years before airing (1988 to 1993).
So if we look at this “current” picture as a Toobworld photo of Kevin, Winnie, and Paul, then it was taken back in 1999. Luckily, their clothing is nondescript enough to work in any era.
So if you write fanfic about ‘The Wonder Years’, this picture could serve as inspiration for stories about the characters as the millennium approaches.
If you do write it up, let me know where I can go to read it….
