“Boy Meets World” fans should be excited that the upcoming TV sequel — it’s only a pilot for now, but given all of this excitement, how could Disney Channel possibly resist? — “Girl Meets World” will include original stars Ben Savage as Cory and Danielle Fishel as Topanga, even if Rider Strong likely won’t take part.

While “Boy” attracted a significant number of old Hollywood types including Phyllis Diller, Soupy Sales, Olivia Hussey, Robert Goulet, Rue McClanahan, and Monkees Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz, it was also a veritable training camp for future TV stars during its seven season run on ABC in the ’90s.
