What’s next? The Harlem GlobePotters?
Posted by: Keir Graff

The hurricane of Harry Potter stories, far from bewitching me, has me feeling beat. So I’m seeking the shelter of a hilarious parody (found on Galleycat), Welcome Back Potter.

There is some irony in the fact that there’s not much crossover between the core audiences of this mashup’s targets — those of us who saw Kotter on TV are aware of Potter, of course, but how many 12-year-olds have heard of Vinnie Barbarino? But, thanks to the magic of reruns, I suppose anything’s possible.

(A likely story: I made my stage debut in a Welcome Back, Kotter parody, as a fifth-grader, playing Vinnie Starbarino.)
