Trivia

As of 2016, World, Boy Meets remains only one out of four former TGIF sitcoms to have had its entire series released on DVD. 'Full House (TV Series 1987-1995)', 'Dinosaurs (TV Series 1991-1994)', and 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' are the only other TGIF shows to have seen a full DVD release. See more »

Goofs

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 »

User Reviews

The best show on Disney Channel!!!
24 February 2005 | by avigayilkleinSee 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.
