The year was 1968, and Kevin Arnold was about to enter junior high school in the suburbs.

That, of course, is the premise of "The Wonder Years, " which followed Kevin and his family throughout his teenage years.

The show went off the air in 1993, five years after it started, but the hit sitcom is considered a precursor to shows like "Modern Family" and "The Goldbergs."

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks to Fred Savage, the man who played Kevin as a child, about the show and its legacy, now that it's available on DVD.

Guest
