Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

The best show on Disney Channel!!!
24 February 2005 | by meSee all my reviews

I don't know why, but for some reason, Disney is getting rid of their best shows and putting in new ones that are pointless to watch (ie: "Brandy and Mr. Whiskers"). But "Boy Meets World" is one of the good ones, unfortunately being pushed off to a later and later time.

This show is good for a number of reasons. The actors are hilarious, all portraying very different and very real characters. Cory's brother, Eric, is my favorite, because every show needs a little slapstick humor.

The story line is fabulous. Unlike other shows that portray sappy, stereotypical teenagers doing things no one in real life would ever do,(See "Lizzie McGuire") this show contains humor and drama held together with definite realism. The show deals with a lot of the things that teenagers go through, while making it still entertaining to watch.

I love this show, and personally don't tire of it. It is great for all ages. The younger shows have more humor and are better for younger children, while the older ones contain more drama and are great for teens to watch. I personally like both, and sometimes my dad watches with me.

Overall, this is a great show, and should not be kicked off the air.
