According to the 2013 book "Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad", ABC wanted to make the show a bit edgier as Kevin matured, and to do that they discussed hiring the TV writer and producer David Chase (who later created "The Sopranos"). Chase wrote a script in which Kevin reads "Catcher in the Rye" and thereafter starts acting like Holden Caulfield, including drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. The script was rejected as too edgy and Chase never went to work for "The Wonder Years." See more »

No matter how many times i see this i can watch it over and over the same episode. I love this show. I've watched it from beginning to end. Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper were my favorite. But i'm sure everybody liked them. I give this show 10/10. I love this show.
