Rumors on the Internet said that the role of Paul Pfeiffer was played by rocker Marilyn Manson. Although this is believed widely, it is not true. The role was played by Josh Saviano.

Wonder years for me was about growing up. I can still remember my father and I sitting in the living room watching that magnificent show. My mother on the other hand, couldn't stand the show. I could never tell why. I think that everyone when they were growing up knew a Paul Pieffer, a Winnie Cooper, a Doug Porter, Lisa Berlini, Becky Slater, Eddie Pentti, Charles "Chuck" Coleman, Randy Mitchell, and even a Greg Hobson. We all have experienced those one or two teachers that actually cared about how we did in school. The show can relate to our first crush, first kiss, first car (1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS)still have it BTW. Even our corny school dances. I guess as we get older good things fade away. Although the show might didn't last as long as we would have liked it to, The Wonder Years will forever be a part of me, and may it always stay in my memory.
