Last Updated on December 6, 2022

If you were a teen in the 1990s, chances are you watched Boy Meets World. Initially airing on ABCBoy Meets World starred Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, William Daniels, William Russ, Betsy Randle, and Trina McGee. In the comedic drama, a group of kids learns about the pitfalls of growing up, accepting change, and paying attention to life’s many lessons.

Watched by scores of teens, Boy Meets World often tackled cultural issues, including interracial relationships, child abuse, sexual harassment, underage drug use, and abandonment. While the show’s impact on its target audience is undeniable, there was more going on behind the scenes than you would think. Everything from racial tension to drastic character changes caused problems on the set, leading to problems fans wouldn’t be aware of until after the show left the network.

Boy Meets World chronicled the coming of age events and everyday life-lessons of Cornelius “Cory” Matthews (played by Ben Savage). The show follows Cory and his friends and family through seven seasons, from his elementary school days to his life as a married man.

Join us as we dive deep into the history and legacy of Boy Meets World, an endearing sitcom 90s kids often defend to their last breath. Boy Meets World – Gone But Not Forgotten is written and edited by David Arroyo and narrated by Jesse Shade.
