Back in the summer of 1998, a TV series called That 70s Show aired on American television, bringing to life a colorful group of teenage friends living it up in the heart of Wisconsin. To nudge your memory, relive how it all began with the very first episode of the series:
Over the course of the next nine years, Fox introduced us to some of the most memorable characters on the small screen and turned many of its leads into the superstars that they are today.
Indeed, it's crazy to think that today, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, his now-wife Mila Kunis (crazy!) and the rest of the cast are some of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. And because of their colossal fame, we sometimes forget what their humble beginnings actually looked like.
Thankfully, an original casting photo for the first season of the show has resurfaced to remind us. You'll hardly believe your eyes when you see Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson as fresh-faced teens:
Just look at them! They're all so young. And is it just me, or does Mila Kunis look NOTHING like how she does now?
Admittedly, she was 14 years old when she started filming the series (after innocently misleading the producers about her REAL age!) so maybe she just hadn't grown into her facial features yet.
But just to put it in perspective, take a look at what the cast looked like in the show's intro in the following 4th and 8th seasons:
It's crazy how time flies, isn't it?
