Welcome, back to an oldie but goodie. As in Welcome Back, Kotter! The kitschy show from the ’70s will receive the 35th Anniversary Awards at the 2011 TV Land Awards when John Travolta reunies with his fellow cast! The show will air on TV Land on April 17.
The classic sitcom centered around compassionate teacher who returned to an inner city high school to teach remedial social studies to “sweathogs.” Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs (Freddie “Boom Boom” Washington), Ron Palillo (Arnold Horshack), Marcia Strassman (Mr. Kotter’s wife, Julie) and John (a.k.a. Vinnie Barbarino) are set to appear.
As for other highlights we can expect from the show, Regis Philbin will receive the Legend Award, Family Ties will get the Fan Favorite Award and The Cosby Show will earn the Impact Award.
