Harry Barandes was originally cast as Eric Matthews, and Matt McCoy was originally cast as Alan Matthews, but after the pilot was shot, their scenes were replaced by Will Friedle and William Russ, who both lasted for duration of the series. A VHS tape of the original version exists. See more »
At one point in high school, as Eric is having a conversation in the hallway, a sign behind him reading "Sex Ed" has in some shots been changed, via graffiti, to read "Sex, Ed?" but not in others. See more »
Cory, the worst thing that ever happened when we were kids was that your Pop-Tart fell on the ground.
Yeah, and *you* convinced me to eat it. You said, "God made dirt, dirt won't hurt."

At the end of the episode "I am Not a Crook," Topanga runs for class president. Everyone is chanting, "Topanga! Topanga! Topanga!" Because of this a credit is listed, "Executive Producer: Topanga." See more »
As a 43 year-old, English teacher, I must admit "Boy Meets World" has some of the most intricate scripts I have ever seen in teenage shows. I sometimes ask my students to view the day's episode at home and come back ready to discuss theme, plot, character, etc. Some students admit to liking the show after a few viewings. Once they understand each character and the force that drives him/her, the show pretty much seems to flow and attract the students.
Oh, yes, I am also addicted to it. I only wish I had followed it through its regular seasons. Watching the re-runs on the Disney Channel is not all that good. They skip episodes and repeat others too often.
