Airing right after Super Bowl XXII in 1988, the much-hyped pilot for 'The Wonder Years' made an immediate impression. After just six episodes the show was awarded an Emmy for Best Comedy Series, and its 13-year old star Fred Savage became the youngest ever performer to be nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
Before Judd Apatow was "Judd Apatow" he wrote a movie in 1995 called 'Heavyweights,' about the adventures of a group of portly young men who had been sent by their folks to a weight-loss camp.
We've been able to track down the whereabouts of most of the actors who played these jolly campers. Others, however, have seemingly disappeared and we can only hope that it's not because they eventually fell prey to the Tony Perkis method of dieting and wasted away to nothing. See what your favorite 'Heavyweights' child actors are up to today.
In his review of 'The Sandlot,' Roger Ebert called the 1993 comedy "the summertime version of 'A Christmas Story.' The venerable critic was certainly onto something there, as both movies take nostalgic looks back at more innocent times and each rely heavily on the talents of its child actor cast.
'The Goonies' was an ensemble movie all the way, and the seven actors who played the ragtag gang of young treasure hunters all delivered memorable performances. In fact, most of them used 'The Goonies' as a springboard into long careers in TV and film, and even the ones who didn't have found success in other venues.
