Smile Howard Hesseman

I wonder why he left Head of the Class before the 5th season.

I wonder if his leaving had to do with the fact the students spending a fifth year in high school. Maybe Hessman (Like Gabe Kaplan)thought it was time for the students to graduate after the 4th year of the show. If anyone else knows, be sure to let me know.

I have only watched episodes of HOTC when Mr. Moore was there. Who took his place in the 1990-91 season?

Billy MacGregor took over as Billy the nwe teacher. He also became Ms. Meara's romantic interest.

Billy's real name is Billy Connolly. And I read that Howard left because his role was getting smaller and smaller while the show started to focus alot more on the students.

In retrospect, would you watch a show that focused on Mr. Moore...or the students? In my opinion...the students! Even the older I get per day...I still would watch it for the students.

It's kind of like Drexel's Class. But then again with that show, who cared either way?

I agree. I watch HotC mainly for the students. Howard Hesseman knew when he signed on to do the show that he wasn't the only cast member!

I would rather have watched the students, in fact the show was mainly about them, so I can see why Howard Hesseman signed off and left.

I hope I don't get in trouble for posting this, but I just came across another message board that suggests that Howard Hessman was in effect, pushed out the door after complaining about Dan Schneider's (Dan Frischman allegedly also had a hand in pushing Hesseman out) "extracurricular activities"!

Cool

Forget Mr. Moore! Forget the students!! The show should have focused more on Miss Meara!!!
