During the opening and closing themes we see a sign that says "Welcome to Brooklyn: The 4th Largest City In America". The sign was located on the right shoulder of the eastbound Belt Parkway just after the entrance ramp from the Verrazano Narrows Bridge which connects Staten Island and Brooklyn. It was later modified and is now an overhead sign over the center lane in the same direction. See more »
'Welcome Back, Kotter' is one of those shows you stay home on the weekends for. I know I do. From the puberty-neglected voice of Arnold Horseshack to the feathered and Jew-froed hair of Vinnie Barbarino, Juan Epstein, and Gabe Kotter, everything about this show is classic. At first glance it might just seem like some kitschy little retro sitcom, but make no mistake, it is awesome. By the last season the show slowed down and became a shadow of it's former self, but if you can ignore that then you will see that this show is one of the best ever.
