Kevin Arnold recalls growing up during the late 60s and early 70s; the turbulent social times make the transition from child to adult unusually interesting.
Owing to its time period, the Vietnam War served as a recurring backdrop to the series, and Jack was a Korean War Veteran. In real life Dan Lauria was a Vietnam Veteran, serving with the US Marines.
Kevin Arnold - The Narrator:
When you're a little kid you're a bit of everything; Scientist, Philosopher, Artist. Sometimes it seems like growing up is giving these things up one at a time.
In the Christmas episode in season 2, Kevin and Wayne try to convince Jack to buy a color television for Christmas. In an episode in season one (Angel #1.4), Kevin is seen watching a color TV in his living room.
