Wondering about The Wonder Years

Still waiting around for The Wonder Years to hit DVD in Season sets? Your Uncle Buck is, well kinda, but now there is word that if they do one day hit store shelves the episodes will be vastly different. Due to the cost of securing the reproduction rights to all the classic 60s and 70s songs from the series, most of the songs, including the opening theme, may not be included in the sets:

From the Denver Post: "We're not that far along," said Jyoti Sarda from 20th Century Fox Marketing, of releasing full seasons of the show. "We know it's something we'd like to put out. We know that people want it out. Consumers are waiting. Fans are waiting. We talk about needing to tackle it, but we haven't gotten to a place where it's being actively worked on."

Sarda hopes to begin releasing the DVDs within two years. No matter when they come out, the original music most likely won't be on them.

"I think that's the only way really we're going to see it," says Gord Lacey, creator of the Web site "I don't have a list of the songs used in the show, but something tells me they're not going to be able to release a completely intact series."

The music-licensing hurdle is substantial. "The Wonder Years" borrowed more than 300 pieces of music for its 115 episodes. Even more daunting is the fact that the music is from what has emerged as a resurgent, nostalgic era.

So while you're waiting feel free to check out the 25 Greatest Wonder Years moments or just drool over photos of Winnie Cooper all grown up:

While Winnie sure looks good now-a-days, UB wonders why there are no new photos of his favorite of the Wonder Years chicks: Madeline!!!

Since then actress Julie Condra had a few moments like an appearance on Married With Children:
