Long before Jerry Series/{{Seinfeld}} wondered about airline peanuts, before Tim Allen said his first [[Series/HomeImprovement "Arrr arrr arrr!"]], before Series/{{Roseanne}} became a Domestic Goddess, there was Gabriel "Gabe" Kaplan, one of the very first stand-up comedians to successfully [[SitComic turn his comedy routines into a hit TV sitcom]]. ''Welcome Back, Kotter'' ran on Creator/{{ABC}} from 197579. The series was based on Kaplan's own high school experiences with remedial education and his memories of a teacher who cared dearly for her students.
