The character 'Dana Pruitt' was a tribute to actress Dayna Price, who was an avid fan of the show and frequently visited the set in addition to her two guest appearances. Ironically, the role of 'Dana' was played by 'Larissa Oleynik', who starred on The Secret World of Alex Mack (1994)', on which the real-life Dayna was a recurring character. See more »
In several episodes, the names and identities of Topanga's parents change. In season one, she calls them Jedediah and Chloe. In later seasons, they are Jedediah and Rhiannon. In total, four men and three women have played Topanga's parents, including a casting change right in the middle of a story arc regarding their divorce. See more »

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 »
It's a show about Growing Up (and the stupid and surreal things in between)
Boy Meets World is one of those shows that you remember 20 years after it's cancellation. The great thing about this show was that it got funnier as it grew. The cast actually grew up nicely and matured (well Eric de-evolved into a brainless twit) but for the most part, THe Matthews and all of their friends had a nice run. One of my favorite things about the show is Mr.Feeny, yes Feh, eh, eh, enny! The voice of KITT from Knightrider reveals himself to be a sarcastic and funny actor who can get a moral past any situation. On a negitive note, the show got way too many characters, Jack (Shawns brother) is an exception, but Angella was brought in to get a cheap hold of the tokken black girl. So I say a fond farewell to Cory Matthews and all of his dilemmas into the abyss that is TV syndication.
