Things like this are why we love the Internet. Recently many folks online have pointed out similarities between AMC’s The Walking Dead and beloved 90s classic, Toy Story. My personal favorite is the undeniable resemblance between Lotso the a-hole bear, and The Governor. Check out this video below, which is only about 42 seconds minus the credits, but still so, so very fantastic.

Before watching all of these romantic comedies or being consumed by Bella and Edward of Twilight fame, we had one fiction relationship that we rooted for and emotionally invested in as if we were a part of it. Cory and Topanga, the couple developed over 7 seasons of Boy Meets World,is the definition of romance in the eyes of 90s kids and Disney lovers across the globe. They are returning, fulfilling one of my top three prayers of returns from that decade (still have fingers crossed for Legends of the Hidden Temple and Supermarket Sweep revivals).
Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage officially signed on to the series, which will be called Girl Meets World. It’ll cover the married couple parenting their 13-year-old daughter. This is good news. No, this is great news. I know there are many skeptics who are treating this comeback like a fragile, old collectors item that they don’t want anyone to touch because they fear it’ll get damaged. I understand that, really I do – but this is CORY AND TOPANGA we’re talking about here, I’m not seeing anyway that it’s not, at the very least, better than the other junk being aired on Disney.
The only legitimate downside of this is that it magnifies our rapid aging. Copanga (admit it, you love that) being old enough to have a teenage daughter means we’ve come a long way from watching Boy Meets World on ABC’s TGIF back in ’95. Let’s embrace this. Sure it could be bad but so what? If it’s the worst thing ever, we can just pretend it didn’t happen… Like the new Figure It Out on Nickelodeon. Folks don’t even acknowledge that mess’ existence.
Be happy! Are you happy? This feels like when you have potential career news you’re excited to tell your Mom about and you hope that she’s ecstatic, but you know there’s a chance she’ll be like, “Meh, that sounds like a scam but I guess if you want to do that with your life…” – crushing every ounce of joy and excitement you had in a matter of seconds. Don’t do that to me – be as excited as I am. Let’s rekindle our crush on Topanga and hope that Feeny (Feeee-he-he-heenay) returns for a cameo or ten.

What is your favorite memory as a part of the All That cast? First off that it’s in the 90s era. I think it’s funny how the 90s are a bit vintage now, but I am proud to say that I was apart of a show that made the 90s what it is. Everyone remembers All That like I remember Rugrats. Being on All That was a dream come true and sharing that with my mother Brenda who passed away a few years ago meant the world to me. My memories meant the world to me and I hoped everyone enjoyed the show just like I did. I met so many great people that are now successful and it was truly a blessing to do a show that was in a lot of people’s households and that made people smile and laugh is all I could ask for.
