'Girl Meets World': You won't believe which 'Boy Meets World' alum is returning now

Will Girl Meets World bring back “baboon” as an insult?

It certainly seems that way. Over the weekend, Boy Meets World/Girl Meets World star Ben Savage posted an Instagram photo of himself with Danny McNulty, a.k.a. John Adams High School bully Harley Keiner, alongside this message: “Welcome back to our friend ‘Harley Keiner’ #GirlMeetsWorld.” The photo shows the all-grown-up McNulty, wearing what appears to be some kind of work uniform (maybe janitor?) and posing in a school hallway with Savage.

What's your favorite sitcom proposal? -- POLL

[Monday-night TV spoiler alert!]

They say love is patient, love is kind. But if television sitcoms are any indication, love is also undeniably funny — and following last night’s touching proposal on How I Met Your Mother between Ted and the Mother (finally!), we decided to take a look back at how shows have tackled popping the question in the past.

So, hopeless romantics everywhere, it’s time to vote. Below, we’ve compiled some of our favorite proposals from comedies that have made engagements equally sweet and silly. Which one’s your favorite?

'Boy Meets World': William Daniels reads Feeny's best quotes -- VIDEO

Boy Meets World‘s Mr. Feeny was the teacher we all secretly wanted — wise, caring, tough enough to make you want to be better, and full of perfectly timed one-liners.

To honor this great character, EW had the legendary William Daniels, who played Feeny for seven seasons, read some of his greatest lines when the cast reunited recently for our annual Reunions Issue.

Take a look at the video below, but a warning: His pick for No. 1 might make you tear up!

'Boy Meets World': Eric and Morgan reunite for a round of trivia -- VIDEO

On a sunny day in Pasadena just a few weeks ago, the cast of Boy Meets World gathered together for EW’s Reunions photo shoot. At the time, it had been nearly 13 years since some of them had seen each other in person. So how did we celebrate? By making them all answer trivia questions, of course!

The first trivia round, which we shared with you exclusively on our Facebook page, featured series stars Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, and Rider Strong. And today, we bring you round two, with Will Friedle and Lily Nicksay, who played Eric and Morgan (for the first two seasons), respectively.

In the video below, see the pair tackle some tough — and unexpectedly awkward! — trivia questions. Spoiler: Friedle is kind of a trivia master!

I'm Still Not Over...Not knowing characters' fates after big cliffhangers

boy-meets-world.jpg

Cliffhangers are rough. Cliffhangers that are never resolved, despite dozens more episodes before series’ end? Unacceptable.

The most egregious example of this is Mr. Turner’s Boy Meets World fate. While like any good ‘90s kid I was obsessed with Cory and Topanga and clung to every word Mr. Feeny said, one relationship that really stuck with me over the years was the one between cool, young, badass teacher Mr. Turner and troubled teen Shawn Hunter. Fans know where I’m going with this…

Despite seasons of investment watching Mr. Turner and Shawn grow closer — even culminating in Turner wrestling with whether to become Shawn’s actual legal guardian — Turner disappeared from the show with no satisfying conclusion during the run of the show. In the season 4 episode “Cult Fiction,” a directionless Shawn decides to join a cult (!), but is rattled when Mr. Turner gets into a motorcycle accident. The end of the episode shows a distraught Shawn holding a body-cast-covered Mr. Turner’s hand in the hospital…and then Turner’s never seen again.

I’ve spent the past 15 years wondering what happened to Mr. Turner. (And happily, it looks like I’m going to — finally — get some answers.) But Boy Meets World is far from the only show to cavalierly play with my heart — and unfortunately, I don’t think these other programs are going to get information-dispensing spin-offs anytime soon.

This Week's Cover: The casts of 'Boy Meets World,' 'The X-Files,' 'Mystic Pizza,' and more get together in the Reunions Issue!

EW1282-1283-COVER.jpg

Missing Mulder and Scully? Can’t cope without Cory and Topanga? Entertainment Weekly has you covered with our fourth annual Reunions Issue, in which we’ve brought 10 of your favorite casts back together again. The stars of Boy Meets World, Do the Right Thing, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The School of Rock and more reassembled to chat about their iconic characters and swap stories about life on the set. (Fans of Frasier, Mystic Pizza, or The X-Files can even purchase one of three special collector’s edition covers. Click here to learn more.) Check out what’s in store for this year’s Reunions Issue:

Boy Meets World: ABC’s long-running coming-of-age comedy Boy Meets World gave the ’90s generation the picture-perfect teen romance between Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel). “People saw it from the very beginning, when Cory and Topanga were hanging out and playing basketball with a pair of socks,” recalls star Savage, who will reprise his onscreen pairing with Fishel for Disney’s upcoming spin-off Girl Meets World. “[The Cory-Topanga relationship is] something that’s very special to people who grew up with the show.” (Head to Facebook for an exclusive video with the cast of Boy Meets World.)

Do the Right Thing: It only took 12 days for director Spike Lee to write his blistering 1989 classic about racial tensions in Brooklyn on the hottest day of summer. “It was going to be what we hoped was an honest portrayal of the race relations in that present-day New York City,” says Lee, who was an up-and-coming young filmmaker at the time. Ruby Dee remembers her first time meeting Lee: “When I first saw him, I thought he looked so young, like a teenager. I didn’t know he was the boss of the joint. But he smoothed any doubts that I had because he knew exactly what he wanted.”

Mystic Pizza: An entire generation fell in love with the small-town drama about three young women (and pizza-joint employees) entering adulthood, which made a star out of then-unknown Julia Roberts. “I went to meet the director and there were tons of kids there Julia’s age, and I remember meeting Julia in the lobby and going, ‘Wow, who’s that chick?’” recalls star Vincent D’Onofrio. Recalls Roberts, “We were just…happy. Happy to have jobs, happy to be working hard, and enjoying each other’s company.”

The X-Files: For nine heart-pounding seasons, Chris Carter’s groundbreaking sci-fi saga kept both believers and skeptics glued to their televisions, thanks to the unmistakable chemistry between stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. “Gillian and I got [to the audition] about the same time, and we ended up running lines in the hallway,” recalls Duchovny. “We had developed a comfort level with each other when we did the audition. Over time, we grew into ourselves as actors, and refined what those characters meant to each other.”

'Girl Meets World' pilot update: Mr. Feeny is on set! -- PHOTO

Ben Savage Instagram

Here’s your daily update on The Most Important Pilot for Millennials of Our Time.

Ben Savage just Instagrammed the above photo along with the caption, “My First Class.” You guys! Cory Matthews is all grown up and teaching junior high! Nostalgia alert!

This is on the heels of a picture tweeted out by Rowan Blanchard yesterday that showed all-grown-up Eric and Shawn visiting the set of the pilot for Girl Meets World. While that photo was certainly a fun “Look At Them Now” pic, this picture reminds us of the one of the key details we actually know about the potential Disney Channel show: Cory’s job as a teacher at his daughter’s school. Will Cory be like Mr. Turner or Mr. Feeny? Twist: What if he takes after Eli Williams?

Below, the nostalgia picture to end all nostalgia pictures, courtesy of Maitland Ward‘s Instagram (Ward played Rachel in the later seasons of Boy Meets World): MR. FEENY (William Daniels) himself! READ FULL STORY
