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.
The college drama 'Felicity' was J.J. Abrams' first foray into television. The show starred Keri Russell as the show's titular character, and it was a hit for the WB among young viewers when it debuted in 1998.
Then ratings fell in 1999, a dip many critics and network executives attributed to Russell's new much shorter hairstyle. Eventually Russell's golden locks grew back and the ratings rebounded, allowing the show to last for four seasons -- one for each year of college.
'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.
Remember 'The Rocketeer?' The movie, which was based on the graphic novel by Dave Stevens, was somewhat of a flop when it came out in 1991, but the tale of a handsome 1930s era test pilot (Billy Campbell) who uses a rocket suit to fight Nazis and mobsters has become somewhat of a cult classic over the years.
'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' was the first John Hughes-directed film to focus on adults, rather than teenagers.
In the 1987 comedy, Steve Martin and John Candy play business travelers with the very adult problem of trying to get home during the crush of Thanksgiving travel. The mismatched pair get into a variety of misadventures during their three day trip from New York to Chicago. When they finally arrive, the film ends on a touching Thanksgiving-appropriate note.
