Show generally

Continuity mistake: The age gap between Eric and Cory decreases as the series progresses. At the start of the show, Cory is in 6th grade and Eric is a high school sophomore, meaning they are four years apart, give or take a few months. By season 3, Cory is in 9th grade (confirmed by dialogue mentioning that Shawn, who is in the same grade as Cory, is 15 years old), and Eric is a senior, leading to an age gap of three years. The first episode of season 4 takes place a couple months after the end of season 3, with Eric and Cory returning from a summer Road Trip, but just two episodes later, Cory mentions that he is in 11th grade, while Eric is still barely out of high school, leading to an age gap of two years.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the house is shown from the front exterior, there is a window on the left, but when seen from the interior there is a hat rack there.

Show generally

Other mistake: A lot of times in scenes in episodes taking place in high school, characters are shown walking up to their lockers and opening them without putting in the combination first.

Show generally

Other mistake: When anybody leaves the house, you can always see that when they open the door, they turn left and go; you can also see bricks/part of a porch in front of the door. But when the house is shown from the front, the fences are on both sides of the door, but not in front of it. So there is no way that they could turn left when leaving.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Establishing shots of the Matthews' house show the doorknob on the exterior of their front door to be on the left-hand side, but shots from inside the house show it to be on the right-hand side.

Cory's Alternative Friends - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Shawn claims his "sister, Stacey" uses the straightening stuff all the time. This is the only mention of her ever during the entire run of the show; and when Jack joins the show he is established as Shawn's only sibling.

Class Pre-Union - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Feeny says "As if you are returning for your 20th high school reunion", there is a red crown on Mr. Feeny's desk with Minkus sitting on a chair at the end. After the camera cuts to a close up of Minkus saying 'More like a pre-union", there is a cut to Mr Feeny who turns to him. Minkus is all of a sudden holding the crown on his lap, then he is seen putting the crown back onto the desk. (00:04:00)

Risky Business - S1-E16

Plot hole: After Shawn leaves Cory's house to get a pizza, he calls Cory on the phone literally a minute later to tell him that Lenny Dykstra is at the pizza place. There's no way Shawn could have left Cory's house, walked to the pizza place, spotted Dykstra and either asked to use the restaurant's phone or found a pay phone to call Cory in such a short amount of time. (00:13:30 - 00:14:45)

Risky Business - S1-E16

Deliberate mistake: Morgan turns on the stereo and starts dancing on the sofa with her doll. She then tosses her doll, which tips over a plant and breaks the glass on a set of French doors. The stereo magically stops the moment the glass breaks.

The Fugitive - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Cory is getting food for Shawn, he's piling meat loaf onto his plate. There are three pieces, one on top of the other two, then they cut to a wide shot and back to a close up of Cory, and it's just one larger piece.

The Fugitive - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Alan is talking to Cory in his room, telling him that he can always come home, he is pointing his finger at him. He has his right arm rested on his legs and is pointing with the left arm. Just before the shot changes to face Cory, Alan stops pointing. In the next shot, facing Cory, Alan has his left arm resting, and is pointing with his right arm.

It's a Wonderful Night - S1-E18

Other mistake: When Eric is ordered to go to his room he mentions that Feeny used to be his 6th grade teacher. However, later in the series it is emphasized several times that Mr. Feeny was Cory's teacher every grade he was ever in. With Cory only being 3 years younger than Eric, it would not be possible for Feeny to have been Eric's 6th grade teacher as Cory would have been in 3rd grade and had Feeny as a teacher per what is stressed on multiple occasions later in the series.

Back 2 School - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Cory and Harley are out in the hallway after the bell rings, and Cory says he should be in history class, then when they are in Mr. Feeny's office, the bell rings again and Cory says his next class is American history.

Pairing Off - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: At the end of this episode when Eric & Cory are talking about Cory's date, Eric walks from his desk to the bed and we see the bedroom door is open, but when he walks to his desk from the bed the door is then suddenly closed.

Me and Mr. Joad - S2-E4

Mr. Feeny: I realise that all you 7th-graders are delicate, adolescent flowers, just beginning your high school blooming. And so I say this with utmost sensitivity: take this test, or die!

Brave New World (2) - S7-E23

Trivia: In the episode when Cory and Topanga are walking through the marriage dorms for the first time, a little boy walks through the hall and says "I see dead people". And in the very last episode the same boy plays Cory's little brother, Joshy.

More trivia for Boy Meets World

Answer: That was what I hope was only a phase of the way things were in California at that time. Many kids who had parents who liked to be modern and be friends more than parents to their kids had them call them by their first names.

Answer: This was part of Topanga's weird phase. She specifically mentions in one episode that addressing her father as "Dad" would make it hard to tell him apart from the other dads in the world.
