Father Knows Less - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Cory's ball bounces into Feeny's yard, he climbs over it and is surprised to see Feeny when he flashes a light on him. Cory would literally have to be blind to not notice Mr. Feeny in his lawn chair.


Correction: Things like that happen in real life all the time. Especially in the dark. It's not at all unrealistic for Cory to have missed Mr. Feeny due to the fact that he wasn't looking for him. I recently walked right past a friend I was on my way to visit, purely because she wasn't where I was expecting her to be.

Danger Boy - S2-E16

Corrected entry: Cory tries to stand up and get out of the ride while it is starting, but in reality there would have been a lock on the safety bar before the ride starts.

Correction: Considering the fact that it was a ride so unsafe that Mr. Feeny and Cory actually fell out of the car and ended up in the opposite seats by the end of it, it sounds like the bars are not safe in general. Therefore, it's no wonder there were not safety locks on them.

The Double Lie - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In this episode, Alan says Eric was 4 in 1978. That would mean that Eric was 20 in 1994. But Eric is driving in 1993 at 16.

Correction: In this episode (s3e2) Alan says he joined the parent club in 1978, meaning that is when Eric was born, then he goes on to say his first mistake as a parent was when Eric was 4. He was not saying Eric was 4 in 1978. Eric being born in 1978 would have made him 16 at the time of the episode as he was.

His Answer (1) - S6-E1

Corrected entry: In this episode Shawn claims he heard Topanga propose when actually he wasn't paying ANY attention to them in the previous episode. Instead he was carrying on about graduating. There wasn't really a way that he could have heard them.

Correction: Topanga proposed to Cory before all the other students threw their graduation caps into the air and started celebrating. Before that, Shawn was simply standing there doing nothing. He could have easily heard them.

Seven the Hard Way (2) - S7-E16

Corrected entry: At the end of this episode, Eric flings the door of the classroom open, runs out and picks up Rachel. He re-enters the classroom carrying her, puts her on the floor and sits on her. When the camera angle changes to a view from where the rest of the gang is sitting, the door of the classroom is shut tight, even though Eric did not close it on the way in.

Correction: The door is slowly closing shut as Eric returns to the classroom, so when after a minute the camera shows the door, this is enough time for the door to close itself.

Grandma Was a Rolling Stone - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Allen is telling the rocket story to Cory, he metions the "Franklin Space Museum." The real place in Philadelphia is actually called "The Franklin Institute."

Correction: Character mistake.

This Little Piggy - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In this episode, Little Cory is a small pink pig. In a later episode, Little Cory is shown again, but he is a fat black pig.

Correction: There's nothing to suggest that it's the same pig. In my family, we've had three different generations of cats that all had the same name. The new pig could actually be Little Cory II, but most people wouldn't bother saying "the second." The Simpsons have had two cats, both named Snowball.


The Pink Flamingo Kid - S3-E17

Corrected entry: In this episode, one of the criminals is Shawn's half-brother, but he is never mentioned again.

Correction: It is obvious that Shawn is not very close to his half brother and only feels the need to defend him because he's family. So it is not suprising that they go their separate ways. Besides it is possible, maybe even likely, that his brother is sent away to reform school or prison later on.

Grandma Was a Rolling Stone - S1-E7

Corrected entry: Neither Cory's grandmother nor Feeny's niece are ever mentioned again.

Correction: Many T.V. shows have a charcter for one episode, nothing intresting or unusual about that.

Notorious - S2-E3

Corrected entry: In this episode, and a few others, Mr. Feeny's office is across from Mr. Turner's class. But in other episodes, it's the boys bathroom.

Correction: If you notice from seasons 2-5 the room next to the phone changes from the boys' room to the girls' and to Mr. Feeny's office.

And the counsellor's office as well.

Show Me the Love - S7-E1

Corrected entry: In this episode, Shawn says that his mom left home when he was 9, but in the early seasons, his mom is still home, and takes off during season 2 or 3, when Shawn is around 14 or so.

Correction: In the episode Angela's Men, in season 7, Shawn tells Angela's father that his mother left him and his father twice. She left when Shawn was nine, then came back and left again.

It's About Time - S7-E7

Corrected entry: If Eric told the hotel that Cory and Topanga were the Peterman's, then how did the band know what song to play when Amy sang her song to Cory, assuming that the Peterman's would not have the same song?

Correction: It's possible that Amy had a moment to talk to someone in the band and ask them to do a certain song, even if it wasn't shown.

Fishing for Virna - S4-E4

Corrected entry: When the 3 kids spill the milk, Chet comes out of a door marked "Custodian" but in earlier episodes that door was marked "Girls" for the Girls bathroom

Correction: Chet does not come out of a door marked "Custodian" in this episode.

A Very Topanga Christmas - S5-E11

Corrected entry: In this episode, they say they've always had their aluminum tree, but in previous episodes, they have a regular green Christmas tree.

Correction: In real life when people say "always" they almost never literally mean "always"; they mean they've done it enough times so it's part of a routine now. Just because they said "always" doesn't mean they've literally always used aluminum, it just means it's a tradition for Christmas that they've done for awhile.

She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not - S1-E13

Corrected entry: Topanga acts like she didn't know Eric was Cory's brother, but in later episodes, Topanga and Cory had known each other for practically their whole lives. How could Topanga have not known about Eric?

Correction: She didn't say "I don't know who Eric is" she probably just didn't recognize him. People can change a lot within a few years.

Kid Gloves - S1-E19

Corrected entry: Alan tells Cory that he won the gloves for finishing second in his weight class, yet when Cory is on the phone, he says they belong to the second best boxer in the whole Navy.

Correction: Alan said "Second in my weight class in the entire United States Navy." Cory was right.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In season 1 when the camera zooms in on Cory and Eric's room, their window is shown on the front of the house. In other episodes Shawn has climbed through the window a number of times. He has done this from the tree house, but the tree house is on the side of the house by Feeny's yard.


Correction: Their room is in the corner of the house. There easily could have been a window on the front and the side.

Brother Brother - S3-E22

Corrected entry: If you keep your eye on Rider in the scene where they are at Chubbie's, he pulls out a piece of paper and looks at it. They were probably his lines.

Correction: Possibly but it could have been a number of other things too, we can't automatically jump to the conclusion it was his lines.

The Father/Son Game - S1-E11

Corrected entry: When the bell rings after Mr. Feeney's first class, Cory doesn't take his books, even though everyone else does. Also, unless they say the Pledge of Alleigance toward the end, the class is about five minutes long.

Correction: Doesn't mean Cory didn't realize his mistake and come back for his books later. And some schools do the Pledge of Alleigance toward the end of class. My Junior High School did.

City Slackers - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In this episode it is said that Mr. Feeny missed a day in 1961, but in "I dream of Feeny", it is said that he has never missed a day

Correction: In "I dream of Feeny" Shawn said "I hear he hasn't missed a day since WWI" That was not a literal statement considering the fact that Mr. Feeny couldn't have been in school during WWI and Shawn couldn't know if he missed in 1961 because he wasn't born yet. It was just a joke.
