News about Girl Meets World is coming in at such record pace that we can’t until Good Friday for the latest update. Not only is this because there’s so much quantity of news and pictures coming in from the set, but because of the utmost QUALITY OF THE NEWS WE HAVE TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY!
Ever since the first Feeny Fridays where we recapped Feeny’s wisdom from the first season, our main focus in rewinding to our childhood (and our young adulthood watching reruns, if we’re honest) has been to glean life wisdom from George Feeny.
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
Well, dear readers and Feeny Fanatics, I’m back. Feeny Fridays are back… but my new posts about the wisdom of George Feeny in the world of Mr. Matthews, Ms. Lawrence, and the rest of our favorites from TGIF have a new look and a new purpose! Since we last convened to analyze Mr. Feeny’s wisdom from season 1 of Boy Meets World, the world we know has changed forever. For the better. Nay. For the best.
Welcome back, Feeny fanatics!

This week’s Feeny Friday comes to us from Friend of The Wise Guise and regular guest blogger, Jay “Jayzor” Salato. Some call him Coach Jayzor. Some just call him Coach. Regardless, he’s back in America, back to living the summer life of a teacher, and back to spending regular time with Mr. Feeny himself. Enjoy this week’s Feeny Friday from him and, as always, here’s the video if you want to follow along at home… Happy Feeny Friday! Read all the way to the end to read the lyrics of a Jayzor original diddy in tribute to Boy Meets World, which holds a special place in Joseph and Jay’s best friendship as they began their friendship over watching Boy Meets World every Wednesday afternoon together.
After Boys II Mensa aired in the fall of 1993, Boy Meets World took a week off before airing this week’s episode. Just like it did then, I had to take a break from writing Feeny Fridays during law school finals and journal write-on. Every time I sat down to write Feeny Friday, I just imagined Feeny standing there, glaring at me, not even having to speak any words and yet conveying to me a sense of disappointment in my poor prioritization and lack of focus on my studies. With all that done, we can get back to business! And by business, I mean Feeny Fridays. On to this week’s episode… Read more
For the next several weeks, I’m in that terrible time known as law school final exams. While I’ve been blissfully denying any pressure until now, now is the time I have to catch up and prepare. So while I sadly have no time to mine the depths of the next Boy Meets World episode for Feeny wisdom, I can take a much-needed break from the library and find inspiration and motivation from YouTube. So I share with you, this very happy Feeny Friday, some YouTube Feeny highlights. Enjoy! Read more
