Feeny Friday: Uncle Shawn & Uncle Eric Joining Girl Meets World?

Since the new era of Feeny Friday has begun with our in-depth look at the production of Girl Meets World and campaign to bring back Feeny to give us more wisdom, we here at The Wise Guise have been staying up to date. And there are a number of things we’ve learned. As Adele might say, rumor has it that production has begun on the pilot episode of Girl Meets World. And, although the radar remains relatively silent on Feeny’s return, we have learned a lot. And there’s greater hope for Uncle Eric & Uncle Shawn to show up than ever before!

Without further ado, I present…

THE TOP EIGHT LATEST THINGS WE HAVE LEARNED ABOUT GIRL MEETS WORLD

1. Topanga still has “it”. – Look no further than Danielle Fishel’s gracing the cover of Maxim recently. I mean, look, we all know how babies are made. Something had to take place to produce this girl that is now meeting the world. On a more serious note, Boy Meets World, as it followed Corey and Topanga from middle school through college to their young marriage, dealt very honestly and classily with sexuality, waiting until marriage, and other traditional sexual mores without being preachy or cheesy. Disney Channel and the producers may not be very happy with grown-up Topanga in Maxim, but something tells me it could actually bring in a new demographic to give this world a try once again.

2. Riley Matthews is a lot like Cory Matthews. – “[She’s a lot like her dad in that she’s not rebel. She struggles with that a little bit I think because her best friend who is edgy and stuff [and that] isn’t Riley. Riley wants to be her friend in a sense.”

3. Riley’s best friend is a lot like Shawn. – If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. As Feeny surely said in a much more intelligent way at some point in time.

4. Don’t worry. It’s not a complete copycat (although would more episodes of the same show really be that bad? Of course not!) – “[Riley] does struggle with her dad because she doesn’t like being like her dad. She wants to be more original.

5. Riley will be dealing with boy problems. It’s the story of a girl, meeting the world, people! –  “I can’t really say anything more but basically in the script she’s dealing with boy problems.”

6. Cory will be a teacher at Riley’s school. More tensions! – “Riley dislikes that her dad is her teacher because I know I definitely didn’t really like it. But I feel like it has its strong points too because she can come to him when she needs things. I also think he’s definitely harder on her because she is his daughter.”

7. Everyone, including the Girl Meeting the World, would love to have Uncle Shawn on the show! – “Riley would love having an uncle Shawn because Shawn’s character on Boy Meets World is a lot like the character of Maya, [who is Riley’s best friend], kind of a rebel. I think Riley really likes the idea of going against the teachers even though she would never do it.”

8. WE MAY HAVE A RETURN OF ERIC MATTHEWS AND SHAWN HUNTER! PEOPLE – ONE STEP CLOSER TO FEENY!

Yesterday, Rowan Blanchard tweeted a picture from the set of Girl Meets World. And, well, I’ll just let the picture speak for itself.

Uncle Shawn & Uncle Eric cameos? Recurring guests? Does this mean Feeny will soon return via social media? People… the sky’s the limit!

Gotta make Feeny proud and cite my sources. As a flashback to the K-12 days, consider this the bibliography!
