EW.com interviewed Disney/ABC executives, showrunners and cast members about TGIF which was a big thing back in the 90’s for ABC’s television nights on Fridays. We copy and pasted the part where Ben and Michael were interviewed about Boy Meets World. You can read the rest of this great article by going here: http://www.ew.com/article/2015/12/23/tgif-oral-history-abc
JACOBS: Teddy [Harbert] called me twice, both TGIF-related. Once, he said, “Over my dead body are you killing that baby dinosaur.” I said, “Ted, they went extinct. I didn’t do it. If you’re going to cancel the show, I’m going to cancel the dinosaurs.” The second time he called with that tone in his voice, he said, “Over my dead body am I going to allow you to marry two 19-year-old kids.” I said, “Why don’t we try running the question on ABC.com: Should Cory and Topanga be married?” He said, “We’ll get 10,000 hits and no one will be interested.” They put up the question at 8 o’clock and in 20 minutes we had over a quarter-million hits and the thing broke. Out of 250,000 hits, 250,000 answers were positive. Teddy called me the next morning and said, “Could you please marry them in Sweeps?”
JACOBS: Dinosaurs was going to leave the air, and I’m walking through the hallways of Disney and they’re saying, “What’s your next show?” They wanted something for TGIF. So I’m walking and this fellow grabs me and brings me into his office and shows me some charts. … I came out with his advice being that my next show should be very influential to the youngest demographic, which was 2 to 11. I thought of Family Ties and Growing Pains, where you had stories about the oldest male child, and his younger sister would be the comic irritant. I thought, what if I turned it around? What if we did a family show that didn’t focus on the oldest child as a series lead? What if we got off it and attracted both sides of the demo because we had a middle child? The story was argued over. The network had never seen something like that before.
A fan on Twitter posted a video of Will at Wizard World Comic Con’s panel. He talked about how the Thundercats Ho! was handed down to him by Larry Kenney and then went onto say that he did the same thing with the Feeny Call by passing the torch to Rowan and Sabrina. We quoted what he said below:
[To Rowan and Sabrina] The Feeny Call is yours now. Treat it well because it was important to me but it’s yours now so now you’re the only ones that can do it, so out of respect for them, they’ll be handling the Feeny Call.
Trina McGee and Maitland Ward were reunited on November 6th at the red carpet for a fashion show at Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA. They were interviewed separately. Trina said it was natural for the new generation to be with the old generation as they’re passing on lessons to the kids.
FoxNews.com interviewed Maitland (Rachel) about what she’s been up to, projects, and she talks about Boy/Girl Meets World , and if she’s returning to Girl Meets World for a guest spot.
“Boy Meets World” had a steady fan base during its seven-year run, and it has only grown in popularity since the show went into syndication. With spinoff “Girl Meets World” in its second season, Ward couldn’t be more proud of the show she worked on.
“I think it’s great for a new generation of kids especially because their parents watched all of us on the show,” she explained. “To raise your kids with the same thing, except a different version, I think it’s a really cool thing, and it’s a great moral show and good values for kids to grow up with.”
And Ward couldn’t be happier re-connecting with her old cast members.
“Ever since the new show came around, everybody got in touch again –even though I had talked to them over the years quite a bit but separately. The show has really brought everyone back together, and that’s what’s really special about it too.”
If she’s returning to Girl Meets World:
“Yes, it’s always in the possibility coming up. I’ve had a lot of talks about it. Definitely a possibility.”
