Your Dreams Were Your Ticket Out

Welcome Back, Kotter Starring Gabe Kaplan

When composer John Sebastian had problems rhyming lyrics for a show called Kotter, he decided to tell a story instead. Since the teacher, played by Gabe Kaplan, was returning to his alma mater, the lyrics set the tone for the show, welcoming Mr. Kotter back to James Buchanan High School.

The producers liked the song so much that they decided to change the title of the show to Welcome Back, Kotter. The song subsequently hit number one on the charts.

Vinnie Barbarino
I got my own idea of what God is like: I know he’s a sharp dresser, and he’s good-looking. And of course he’s Italian.

Welcome Back, Kotter

The show was a big hit, at least for the first three seasons. By the fourth year, Gabe Kaplan had left over creative differences with the producers. John Travolta, the show’s breakout star, had soared to new heights with Saturday Night Fever, and appeared only occasionally as a special guest star.

Gabe Kaplan
I mean, I would have loved to have kept on being a big television star. If that’s the way things would have broke, I would have loved to have done that. I just didn’t really want to continue and be someone who took whatever was offered.

I was always a character actor, basically, that sometimes looks like a leading man.
