Gabe Kaplan clashed with producers creatively during the last couple seasons and eventually left the show as a result. He wanted to have the Sweathogs graduate during the 1978 season and enroll in some local junior college; with Kaplan still overseeing them. But the show producers want to keep the formula as is; so they kept the Sweathogs (all well in to their twenties at this point) in high school. This led to Kaplan quitting. See more »

Hilarious TV-Series as recommended by an enthusiastic fan
Although not watching this TV-series for the past twenty years I'm still able to remember details as names, sceneries and the soundtrack. The characters are well-pictured and witty, the dialogues are pointed. I wished I had had a teacher like Kotter myself.
