Did You Know?


Danielle Fishel claims that producer Michael Jacobs named her character after Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles. Jacobs was driving past that location, when production called and asked for a name for the character. Jacobs admitted that if he drove any further when the call came, he would have named the character Canoga. See more »


As with any long running series, certain details change as the show progresses and writers change. Both Shawn and Topanga, for instance, have sisters in the first season but are later depicted as only children. In the show's earlier years, Topanga's mom was named Chloe, but in later episodes she's known as Rhiannon. Inconsistencies like these are generally forgiven in series. See more »

A Comparison to Life
25 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I grew up watching Boy Meets World. It has always been my favorite show. They talked about everything from a child's perspective to a teenager's perspective to an adult's perspective. The relationships and problems

that faced Cory and Topanga, Cory and Shawn, and the whole bunch face everyday teenagers today. It is completely understandable, and can always make you smile. I hope it continues to air on ABC and Disney Channel. It is an inspiration to children. Boy Meets World shows all of the hardships that children can have. From Shawn's parents splitting up to his dad dying. They show the progression to a wonderful relationship between Cory and Topanga. Some episodes can make you laugh and some can make you cry. It is like a Friends episode for children. It is a wonderful story of friendships, relationships, and life.
