Harry Potter starts his story as an unwanted nephew living in a storage space under his abusive family's stairs. He ends up the most famous, respected, and powerful wizard in the world. Aladdin begins as a street rat who's gotta steal to eat and gotta eat to live while Jafar is the second most powerful man in Agraba using the Sultan as his puppet. By the end of the tale, Jafar is imprisoned and destined for servitude but Aladdin gets the girl and will one day be the ruler of the kingdom. We love a good flip-flop in a story. One story in the Bible is absolutely filled with them.
I remember watching The Wonder Years growing up. I honestly don't know why I liked the show so much. I was too young to really get what was going on episode to episode. All I really remember is that Kevin crushed hard for Winnie. And I remember the theme song and its famous chorus "I get by with a little help from my friends." I pretty much know that whole song by heart because of The Wonder Years.
