Part of the show's running storyline is a falling-out between Kevin and Winnie, who becomes a background character for several months, until she and Kevin reconcile. The main reason for this part of the storyline was that actress Danica McKellar had had a growth spurt, and she and star Fred Savage, already shorter than McKellar, didn't look right standing together. The characters reconciled after Savage began to catch up in height. See more »

I can remember watching Kevin Arnold growing up, from 1988 until the shows end in 1993. This is a show where you can actually say, "Yeah, that happened to me too" at some point in every episode. The episode that relates best to me is the one where Kevin is trying to call the prettiest girl in class, and dials every number but the last one. He is scared of rejection, I suppose. I can remember doing the same thing at that age. And the on again, off again relationship between Kevin and Winnie was priceless, just the way it was "back in the day". I wish there were more shows like this one on now, but we are given the choice now of watching these pathetic reality programs that SUCK, and appear to entertain only the braindead of society (mostly college kids).
