The popular television series Welcome Back, Kotter (1975-1979) featured the members of a Brooklyn high school class to which Gabe Kotter, a former student, had returned as a teacher. GABE KAPLAN, previously a standup comedian, starred as teacher Gabe Kotter in the TV sitcom Welcome Back Kotter (1975-1979). He made his feature film debut as a college basketball coach in Fast Break (1979). JOHN TRAVOLTA received Academy Award nominations for Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Pulp Fiction (1994). Travolta, who first found fame as Vinnie Barbarino in the TV sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter (1975-1977), became a cultural phenomenon with the release of the films and soundtracks of Saturday Night Fever and Grease (1978). His Urban Cowboy (1980) gave as big a boost to country music as Saturday Night Fever had for disco. Travolta's career seemed in decline in the 1980s, but big successes in Pulp Fiction (1994), Get Shorty (1995), Face/Off (1997) and Swordfish (2002) heralded his return as a major American actor. ROBERT HEGYES (1951-2012) spent a few years acting on Broadway before being cast in the ABC comedy Welcome Back Cotter (1975-1979). After the show Hegyes continued to act on television and on stage and played the character Detective Manny Esposito on the television crime drama Cagney and Lacey from 1986-1988. MARCIA STRASSMAN has over 60 TV shows and movies to her credit, beginning with a 1964 role in The Patty Duke Show, but is probably best known as Nurse Margie Cutler from M*A*S*H (1972-1973) and as Gabe Kotter's wife Julie Kotter in Welcome Back, Kotter (1975-1979). She was also the wife and mother in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989) and its sequel, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid (1992). LAWRENCE HILTON-JACOBS appeared in all 93 episodes of the show as Sweathog Freddie 'Boom Boom' Washington. He has continued a successful acting career, appearing in numerous films and television shows including Alien Nation (1989-1990) and Let's Stay Together (2011). RON PALILLO (1949-2012) has appeared onscreen since the 1970s, mostly working as a supporting actor. His most famous role was his first: Arnold Horshack in the TV sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter (1975-1979). He also appeared in such films as The Tempest (1985), Doin' Time (1985), Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives (1986), Snakeeater (1989), Committed (1991) and Wind (1992).
