Child Stars Turned Stone Cold Foxes | Part 3

The Wonder Years' Fred Savage & Danica McKellar

In the interest of time, I am forced to shortened this feature to include two celebrities per week instead of four. Don't worry, I'll be sure to always include a stone cold vixen for my male readers.

Today we check in on two stars from the hit series, The Wonder Years. These two didn't turn out half-bad. I know you guys were drooling over Danica back in the late '80s and I'm sure you've seen her in Stuff magazine. Whatever. I think it's a bit of a disappointment when stars from my youth disrobe. Although in Danica's case, she was voted "1990s star you'd most like to see in lingerie" by her male fans. Fred was cute, but he was my little brother's age, meaning much too young for me (back then).  Fred's brother Ben will not be included, I never really thought he was as cute as Fred. Not that I was even into Fred, just saying...



Fred Savage

Danica McKellar

I love Fred Savage! Total fox!

Copyboy said...

She came out with a math book too. I almost bought it until I found out she had no photos in it.

Cheeseboy said...

Fred was great in The Princess Bride as well. I saw Danica had some math book published. She was one you could tell at the time she would be a fox when she grew up. Both her and Alyssa Millano.

We loved The Wonder Years. It was nice having something the whole family could watch.

Morgan said...

Fred Savage is a major hottie, especially in No One Would Tell! I know he kills Candice Cameron, but he was still looking good. I'm so horrible. Haha.

Really enjoyed this show because it was set in the era I grew up in.

Oh how I wished I had a boy who was crazy about me the way he was crazy about... Whatshername lol...

Bossy Betty said...

I loved this show! I wonder if I could get it on Netflix? Thanks for the good memories!

I had such a crush on little Kevin. He was much cuter as a kid. Impressive to learn that Winnie's got brains and looks.
Cheers,
Robyn

She was on NCIS as a (guess what?) Genius, lol. I wish they would get the music rights straightened out with this show so they could put it out on DVD...my husband would be SOOOOO happy.

MoonDoggie said...

I love this show but my husband can't stand it so I can only watch it when he's not in the room.
I was so surprised to find out that Becky Slater (Kevin's scorned woman) was Winnie's real life sister!

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

We all have a Winnie Cooper in our pasts.

Powdered Toast Man said...

I never thought Winnie was all that cute when I watched The Wonder Years. I didn't even know her real name until I read your post.

You are going to do this once a week? I'm excited.

I loved the Wonder Years... makes me feel old now though ;)

Teachinfourth said...

This is, by far, my all-time favorite show.

I also think that many of us could empathize with most of Kevin's plights and cheered for him when things ended up going his way…

I watched the biography of The Wonder Years on Youtube and really liked it. Just sharing for those who might be fans:

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

I love them both and we have her math book!

Joann Mannix said...

Love Fred's impish grin. It hasn't changed over the years. And Danica is gorgeous. I love that she's so smart and has chosen that path. Who would have thunk it? Girls can have brains and be gorgeous, too.

mama-face said...

hahaha. So glad to follow you now...this is a great feature. Yeah...Fred Savage turned out well. (he really was so cute in Princess Bride). I love your 516 connection.

:)

Bonnie said...

Wow! I hadn't thought of that show in ages!

Hope you're having a lovely day!

xoxo,
Bonnie

Fucking winnie cooper, I'd give it to her real fucking hard

Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I hope you'll come back soon! I'm following you back ;)

Marlene said...

I so totally missed this entire series, though I remember the commercials. Sheltered, I tell ya. Sheltered.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm your latest follower!

You know who else was a young star and turned out HOTT?

Patrick Dempsey.

Yummy. :-)

Amber Von Felts said...

He is one of those kids who grows up into an exact adult version of his childhood self. I'm pretty sure he did some directing for Always Sunny In Philadelphia. I LOVED the wonder years. Remember the rumor that his nerdy friend grew up to be Marilyn Manson! LOL!

Samantha said...

Love Fred Savage :) He was/is a cutie...but you're right, Ben wasn't as cute although I did love him on Boy Meets World!

Momma Fargo said...

I miss The Wonder Years. It was our version of Ward and June.

TS Hendrik said...

*folds hands under chin* Are you kidding? Ben Savage is so dreamy!

And now a little more straight... Boy Meets World was the best! I'd take it over Wonder Years any day.

Dan Alexander said...

The adult Fred Savage was in a fun show called "Working" which debuted at a time when I did not have a job and felt horrible. It was fun!

I only recently realized that the host of "The Dish" show is Topanga from "Boy Meets World."

It was awful seeing Fred play a bad guy on an episode of "Boy Meets World". Then Ben played a bad guy on an episode of that show, "Still Standing." I know they were trying to show off their acting chops, but it was too much to deal with.

Rapunzel said...

Just enjoyed catching up with your last few posts. Good on you for doing another video blog!

Thanks for reminding me of Fred Savage. I always felt we had an affinity because he's a day younger than me. How that was relevant to anything I've no idea now!!

Dude, you have to watch the Lifetime movie with Fred Savage and Candace Cameron Bure.... Fred Savage plays Candace's abusive jock boyfriend....

Danica is super dooper smart! Like Stephen Hawking smart.... She's written math books for young girls....

ASBLACKASOBAMA said...

Well, maybe not Stephen Hawking smart....

bbcd mama said...

I didn't know he was a Chi-town boy! I think he looks like a young Mandy Patinkin (sp!) in his grown up photo.

Michelle Pixie said...

Fred Savage looks exactly the same!

And Danic well she's hot because she is so dang smart!

joe said...

Winnie was a pretty frigid chick, as I remember... which makes that "now" pic seem totally unbelievable.

Reenie said...

I do believe Fed Savage was my first-ever crush... oh the good ol' days :)

I think I need to watch 'The Wonder Years' once again!
