Where can I buy cheap dvds online for Welcome Back, Kotter Complete Series DVD? Gabe Kotter, formerly a Sweathog, returns to James Buchanan High as a teacher and is assigned the remedial class to which he once belonged. Mr. Kotter is an involved and caring teacher, which one would have to be in dealing with a certain four students in his class, who end up in trouble on a regular basis — lady’s man Vinnie Barbarino, the always cool Freddie “Boom-Boom” Washington, the tough Juan (Luis Pedro Phillipo de Huevos) Epstein, and the sheepish Arnold Dingfelder Horshack. Welcome Back, Kotter was based on Gabe Kaplan’s own high school experiences with redmedial education and a teacher who cared dearly for her students. Changes on the show. Gabe Kaplan left the series in the third season. He hadn’t expected the show to run as long as it had. Kotter was made Vice-Principal, and thus was seen considerably less. John Travolta, of course, found his own place as a celebrity, leaving the show around the same time Gabe Kaplan did (returning every so often as a “special guest star”). The replacement for Barbarino was Beau, who didn’t help things much. By now the show had essentially lost its two biggest stars.
Buy dvds on line for Welcome Back, Kotter Complete Series. This show is great, featuring a young John Travolta and a hilarious surrounding cast of characters. Know now that this isn’t like the John Travolta show or anything like that, but he is really the only person to come out of this show that has an acting career today, which sounds bad, but it’s not. Anyway this show is classic, and is really enjoyable for the whole family. It’s pretty cheesy and sometimes it hasn’t aged well but it’s still fun to watch and to think that this was the stuff back in the day, and when I mean the day I mean the 70’s. Ron Palillo, who plays Horseshack, is hilarious who you might recognize from Friday the 13th part 6. His lines are usually very hysterical. And who can forget Mr. Kotter played by Gabe Kaplan. He serves as the teacher of this hilarious band of misfits and in every episode turns out to be their stand up comedian, their therapist, and their mentor/guide. Its pretty dog gone hilarious. So buy this, get to class on time, and welcome back kotter.
