  • Notes

    • This episode is credited by many as being the one that snagged the "Outstanding Comedy Series" Emmy for "The Wonder Years" in 1988 (beating out already defined series "Cheers" and "The Golden Girls"). This is also the episode that was responsible for earning the series' renewal for a second, third, and fourth season in one single three-year contract (The writing was so rich and earnest, that the network just couldn't foresee its future without 'Wonder'!), something that seldom happens in television. Also, when the series finale originally aired on ABC, TV Guide wrote an editorial ('A Farewell to Wonder' by Barry Golson, May 8-14, 1993 issue) that made references directly to this episode and no other!
