The real ages of all the characters who end up in college together (Cory, Eric, Topanga, Shawn, and Jack) differ from just a few years apart between each other except Angela, played by Trina McGee, who is actually the oldest of them all. However, in the show Eric and Jack are supposedly seniors in college while Cory, Topanga, Shawn, and Angela get into college at the same time, which states that they're all probably the same age. Trina McGee is in fact 10 years older than Rider Strong and seven years older than Will Friedle, who plays Eric, while Jack (Matthew Lawrence) and Cory (Ben Savage) are actually the same age in real life.

The main characters were in the sixth grade and eleven years old when the series began in Fall of 1993. They should have graduated from high school, therefore, in the year 2000. Instead, two years were missing from their high school careers and the writers had them graduate in 1998. When season 2 began, they were in 7th grade and this was referenced by head bully and repeating senior Harley Kiner. He was known for especially picking on seventh graders and kept reminding Cory of that fact throughout the second season. Somewhere between season's 3 and 4 their year in school became hazy between them being in 8th grade and freshmen in high school. 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 »
Sometimes the lessons we learn about life when we are growing up are forgotten when we become adults; this show helps to remind us of what we learned. It is a bit campy, but that is half of the fun of the show. The characters are people that we all knew at some point in our lives, but the bond that they share is not something that we can all say that we have. If you are searching for 30 minutes of campy fun, and a chance to look back on your adolescence then this is the show for you.
