The final DVD installment in the series, THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON contains all 22 episodes from Season 6 (September 23, 1992-May 12, 1993) in their original broadcast versions. Season 6 finds Kevin and his friends coping with the challenges of high school. He joins the wrestling team, gets conned by the goof-offs he hires to paint his teacher's house, and preps for the SAT with Paul (Josh Saviano) and Winnie (Danica McKellar). In the Arnold household, the men endure their annual fishing trip, Norma (Alley Mills) gets a high-paying job, Jack (Dan Lauria) is frustrated by a lukewarm evaluation at work and tries to start his own business, and Wayne (Jason Hervey) has a new girlfriend - who's 23, divorced, and has a baby. Kevin's delivery job leaves him no time to spend with Winnie, an enthusiastic volunteer with the McGovern campaign. He sneaks out in his father's new car to try and take her to a Rolling Stones show, frets over what to give her for Christmas and gets in trouble for calling her perfect. The regular poker game reveals big problems among the guys, but more seriously, after an innocent mistake, Kevin lets everyone believe that he and Winnie spent the night together. When she leaves to take a lifeguard job at a summer resort, Kevin follows, and while making their way home they take refuge in a barn and spend a very special Independence Day together in the final memorable episode.
