About Boy Meets World

Boy Meets World is an American sitcom television series that chronicles the events and everyday life-lessons of Cory Matthews (played by Ben Savage), a Philadelphian who grows up from a young boy to a married man. The show aired for seven seasons from 1993 to 2000 on ABC, part of the network's TGIF lineup. The first season begins with Cory Matthews and his best friend Shawn Hunter, two average sixth-graders that come from different backgrounds. They do not care about schoolwork, despite the efforts of Mr. Feeny, their longtime teacher. Their primary interests are in sports, though later on Shawn and then Cory begin to express interest in girls. This season focuses specifically on Cory's relationships with the other characters in the show. He begins to understand his parents more and respect them for all that they do. His relationship with his older brother Eric becomes confusing as Eric's constant obsession with girls is foreign to Cory and he becomes more protective of his little sister, Morgan. Cory and Shawn's friendship endures real tests for the first time, and Cory must often choose between doing what Shawn wants him to do and what is best for Shawn.
