In 1985, Michale J.Fox was more than just a time traveler. He played the leading role in the hit movie “Teen Wolf” which soon enough turned into an animated TV series. In 2011, by embracing modern life technology, the new and improved version of the show was released.
One of the biggest challenges in the show is the makeup. It took over four hours to complete Tyler Posey’s makeup, meaning all the scenes that involved him being in the wolf appearance had to be shot there and then. There was no time for retaking and reshooting. By the way, the wolf’s roaring in the show is actually a real recording of a gorilla.
21 Jump Street Had a Surprising Guest Appearance
"21 Jump Street" was categorized as a police crime drama series. The show was a breath of fresh air as it was completely off-scale from the high school story sitcoms that were broadcasted at the time. It was about undercovered young police officers who were on a mission to investigate crimes in high schools.
Johnny Depp was the biggest name on the show and earned a whopping $45,000 per episode. Depp was not alone as Holly Robinson was the voice behind the theme song. Bradd Pitt one of the "pretty boys" of the 1980s was on the show too, appearing in one episode only.
That's So Raven Couldn't Predict Its End
"That's So Raven" was launched in 2003. Raven was a teenager with abilities to see the future. Occasionally, her magical touch benefited her but sometimes her interference caused more chaos than planned. The show ran for four successful seasons but as the early 2000s were overloaded with high school TV shows, the names on the TV guide changed frequently.
Although the purpose of the show was purely to entertain, it managed to cover plenty of educational topics. The battle against prejudice, the harms of smoking, and the complex relations all teens have with their parents were all mentioned in a direct or indirect manner throughout the show.
Dawson's Creek Nearly Matched Tom Cruise With Selma Blair
When "Dawson's Creek" was first aired, the entire cast was anonymous with no major TV appearances and was turned down by FOX (who probably regret doing so). Katie Holmes (who was in high school at the time) wasn't initially supposed to be on the show and Tom Cruise could have ended up with Selma Blair instead. James Van Der Beek (Dawson) was known as an "easy cryer" and many of his crying scenes (especially the iconic one at the end of season three) were unscripted.
The show's theme song wasn't the production's first choice and they were counting on Alanis Morisette's "Hand In My Pocket" for the opening. As the rights for using the song couldn't be secured they had to do with the second runner-up which was "I Don't Want to Wait".
Not Even George Clooney Could Save Baby Talk
The show was based on the "Look Whos Talking" movie which was released in 1989. The characters were new and exciting, however, the storyline and a big part of the text were abused and reused in the show. Overall, the show performed well and lingered on to the success of the movie.
Now, we are unsure about what happens behind the scenes of this show but the first actress who played the lead character left after shooting three episodes, her replacement left after the end of the first season, and the one who starred in the second season was grateful when it was all over. The only good thing we could find about this show is George Clooney who played the role of Joe.
