"Kevin from Work," a new series debuting Aug. 12 on ABC Family, concerns a guy named Kevin (Noah Reid), who declares his unrequited love for a co-worker (Paige Spara) in a letter. Because he has accepted a job overseas, he thinks he'll never see her again. But of course that job falls through and Kevin has to return to the office. So as we await the hilarity and awkwardness that's sure to ensue, we offer these five other TV Kevins we've seen over the years:

Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage, "The Wonder Years") -- TV's favorite adolescent boomer, trying to make sense of the late 1960s.
