About Boy Meets World

This gentle yet mildly surreal sitcom was part of ABC’s “TGIF” lineup aimed at pre-teens and early teens. Its tenure lasted from 1993 through its end in 2000.

The people in the world of teenager Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) continue to test his theories about life and relationships, on the fourth season of “Boy Meets World.”

Topanga (Danielle Fishel) is one person who continues to test Cory’s outlook and emotions in the ways of young love. Though they are back together again after a bumpy start, anything could happen when it comes to their relationship.

His best friend, Shawn (Rider Strong), no longer lives with English teacher Jonathan Turner ( Anthony Tyler Quinn), but with his truck-driver dad, who has moved back to town. Cory, who was instrumental in bringing the father and son together, hopes that Shawn’s mother will also rejoin the family.

Cory’s older brother, Eric (Will Friedle), failed to get accepted to a four-year college, even after all of his amusing yet sincere efforts to do so. He must now figure out if he’s either going to make a fresh start living out of town or stay within the comforts of home.

But Eric isn’t the only one trying to decide what’s best for his life. Their dad (William Russ) is also at a point where he must decide his future. He’s worked at the grocery store since his teenage years and wonders if it isn’t time to explore a different career.

Fortunately, there’s always Cory’s mom, Amy (Betsy Randle), to give everyone guidance and all sorts of helpful advice; and his little sister, Morgan (Lindsay Ridgeway), to add her ten-year-old point of view.

At high school, the ever-present and wise Principal George Feeny (William Daniels) continues to make Cory’s and Shawn’s lives more challenging. The principal even gets involved with former student Eric as he makes some educational decisions. Feeny, who still lives next door to the Matthews, has a unique way of always seeming to know what unpredictable antics the young men are up to.
