Product Overview

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 remedial education and a teacher who cared dearly for her students.

Includes all 22 episodes from The Complete First Season of Welcome Back, Kotter!

Editors Note
Note WELCOME BACK KOTTER is fondly remembered by TV fans who grew up in the 1970s, and this release presents viewers with a much-requested opportunity to revel in Gabe Kotter's (Gabe Kaplan) adventures once again. WELCOME BACK KOTTER begins with Kotter returning to the school where he was once a pupil--James Buchanan High. Kotter is there to teach the remedial class that he once belonged to, but four students--Vinnie Barbarino (John Travolta), Freddie "Boom-Boom" Washington (Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs), Juan Epstein (Robert Hegyes), and Arnold Horshack (Ron Palillo)--are a constant thorn in his side. However, Kotter proves to be an inspirational and tolerant teacher, and is soon dispensing a brand of wit and wisdom based on Gabe Kaplan's real-life experiences. This release includes every episode from the first season of the show.
