Trivia

Throughout Boy Meets World (1993), Cory and Topanga's future children had a few different potential names: Chewbacca and Plankton (in jest), Cory Jr. and Barbara, Steven and Chloe (which was, for several seasons, Topanga's mother's name as well), and Beverly Glen. None of those names made it to the spin-off wherein they have a daughter named Riley and a son named August. Even the eldest son they almost had, who was ultimately cut from the show, was given the name Elliot instead of any of the names previously mentioned. See more »

Goofs

Throughout out the series, it's clear that the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers themselves someone they can look up too. See more »

Quotes

Maya HartRiley Matthews: I've been waiting for a day like this to come. Struck like lightning, my heart's beating like a drum on the edge of something wonderful.

Nostalgia-Packed
9 April 2019 | by kdotsonkdSee all my reviews

I give the show overall an 8/10 due to the nostalgia factor. It had its moments where it really was great. It also had its moments where it was over-the-top cheesy, but it is geared towards 5-10 year olds so that makes sense. I think if the show could have gone on and with a different network, then it could have really shined. More adult situations and actual drama could have saved the show. The show honestly started to shine as it started winding down, which is unfortunate. Definitely worth the watch if you are a die-hard BMW fan.
