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. Feenys' office.

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.

Cory's Alternative Friends - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In the episode "Cory's Alternative Friends," Mr. Feeny says he taught only 6th grade for many years, but later in the series it is established (against all educational practice) that he has been Cory and Shawn's teacher in every grade at school.

Correction: This doesn't mean that Mr. Feeny couldn't have taught 6th grade for years before Corey and the others started school. He is obviously old enough to have been teaching for years before they were even born.

City Slackers - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Shawn is reading Mr. Feeny's diary, he says that Mr. Feeny called in sick to his class in 1961 to go to the cabin. However, in Seven The Hard Way, at Feeny's retirement party, it says: MR. FEENY BELOVED TEACHER 1964-2006. 1961 is three years before '64

Correction: In "Seven The Hard Way" Mr. Feeny's retirement party was an imaginary thought. It's not likely everything would be correct in an imaginary thought.

A Very Topanga Christmas - S5-E11

Corrected entry: In all the episodes there are stairs in the kitchen and in the living room. In this episode though, the hallway is shown, and there is only one pair of stairs.

Correction: They only show the hallway from one angle. The stairs could be on the other side of the hallway.

The B-Team of Life - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Why did Cory's family go to the game when his basketball coach said that 2nd string doesn't go to the away games?

Correction: The coach told him during the school day. Corey didn't have a chance to tell his family, so when he got home, his family had already left for the game.

On the Fence - S1-E2

Corrected entry: If Shawn lives in a trailer park, and as we later find out, his father has trouble paying the bills, how can he afford an extremely expensive water gun?

Correction: That water gun wasn't really implied to have been expensive, just amazing because it could hold so much water and was so big. Plenty of stores sell water guns that can hold a ton of water and are farely huge and it doesn't even cost over 15 dollars. Plus, it may have been a gift.

The Happiest Show On Earth - S3-E21

Corrected entry: When Corey and Shawn sleep in a Splash Mountain log (impossible anyway) and they go over the drop, they seem surprised as if the ride just started. In reality there is about a 10-minute journey past show scenes before the "big drop"

Correction: It's possible that they didn't notice the ride started. I've been on that ride and it isn't very wild till the end.


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

Corrected entry: In this episode, Topanga's sister comes to pick her up from Cory's house at the end. She is never mentioned or seen again.

Correction: How is this a mistake, many guest stars in shows are never seen again. Maybe she moved out. Just because she isn't in any more story-lines doesn't mean she isn't around.


Season 6 generally

Corrected entry: I think this is the episode were Shawn and Topanga have to kiss for the movie but when they do Cory says that their kiss had to mean something and that you can't have a kiss without it meaning anything,so how come in an earlier episode when he went to that ski lodge and kissed that girl he kept telling Topanga it didn't mean anything.

Correction: Cory is extremely upset that his best friend kissed his girl friend. Of course he isn't going to bring something up that would make it seem like he was over reacting. He doesn't bring up the kiss at the ski lounge because he doesn't want to make it seem like the kiss Shawn and Topanga shared was fine.

What I Meant To Say - S3-E3

Corrected entry: Mr Feeny's office is the same room used as the janitor's closet in "Janitor Dad"

Correction: This isn't a mistake. In almost every tv show they use the same room for something different.

Hair Today, Goon Tomorrow - S4-E2

Corrected entry: When Cory tries to regain the curls in his hair by putting rollers in it after the straightener ruined it, it turns into a huge Don King-like afro afterward. How in the world did Cory's hair get that long when all he had from the get-go was short curly hair?

Correction: It's a joke.

By Hook or By Crook - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When the boys are talking about Mr. Feneey's test being so hard Eric says each question had 11 choices. Then he asks his friend what he put for a question and he says R, and the Eric says he put V, and those are pasts the 11th letter, and later the girl is giving Eric the answers she says 4 is X, again past the 11th letter.

Correction: That doesn't necessarily matter. I've taken tests with five choices with question 2 having F,G,H,I, and J.

The Fugitive - S1-E17

Corrected entry: When Amy and Morgan enter Cory's bathroom, Shawn somehow gets out (presumably through a window). But in "Hair Today, Goon Tomorrow," the bathroom is shown, and there is no window.

Correction: Amy says that the door between Morgan's room and the bathroom is locked, so presumably, it is through this door and out Morgan's bedroom that Shawn leaves. There is a door there when we see the bathroom later.

New Friends and Old - S3-E13

Corrected entry: In this episode, Amy says that Frankie's father has the first name Francis. But in The Thrilla' In Philla', Mr. Feeny says it's Leslie

Correction: In The Thrilla in Philla, it is implied that Frankie's dad doesn't want anyone to know that his first name is Leslie. Francis is probably his middle name, which he would use instead if he found his real first name so awful.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episodes when they show Topanga's dad there's a different actor every time. The first time you see her dad he has long hair, and the next few times after that he has short hair and looks completely different.

Correction: In seasons two and three it was Peter Tork, in season six it was Michael McKean and in season seven it was Mark Harelik. Occasionaly roles need to be recast and it is not a mistake that the actors are not identical.

The Fugitive - S1-E17

Corrected entry: Allan says Cory and Shawn have been best friends since Shawn taught Cory how to pick the lock on his playpen. But the flashback in "It's Not You, It's Me" shows Shawn and Cory meeting for the first time at the zoo, aged around 6 or 7.

Correction: He was saying that to imply that Cory and Shawn have been best friends forever, it was not meant to be take literally.

Class Pre-Union - S1-E9

Corrected entry: The sign at the class reunion says "Welcome Back, Class of 2000," but the characters actually graduated from high school in a 1998 episode.

Correction: In reality, if you do the math, they should have graduated in 2000 as shown in the episode. Since it was a series, they combined a few grades into a season, like season 2 had them in 7th and 8th grade. Technically, 2000 is correct.

The B-Team of Life - S1-E14

Corrected entry: When Cory is telling the family about his game, he says he grabbed the rebound, and the opposing team fouled him. Then he made the free throw and won the game. In logic, no team would give another team a free throw, rather than making someone shoot a final shot.

Correction: It says that no real team would foul anyone, but Cory didn't even play in the game. He was making up the entire story, so even if it isn't logical, he may have not thought it through.

It's Not You ... It's Me - S5-E3

Corrected entry: In the flashback, Cory refers to Topana as his future wife. But in all of season 1, Shawn and Cory ridicule Topanga.

Correction: They did, but if you watch the episode A Long Walk to Pittsburg, Cory states that he and Tapanga were friends until Eric started making fun of him for being friends or "loving" her. Thats were the ridiculing began.

The Thrilla' in Phila' - S2-E21

Corrected entry: Mr. Feeny calls Frankie's father Leslie, but in New Friends and Old he is called Frankie, Sr.

Correction: His name IS Leslie, but he most likely had it changed years later because it would be emberassing to be a Pro Wrestler named "Leslie"...

The Grass is Always Greener - S3-E12

Corrected entry: In the episode where Shawn and Cory find out about Turner's pop quiz, they are reading Of Mice and Men. In this episode, Eric is asked to turn in a paper on the same book. Very rarely will a school teach the same book in 7th grade and 12th grade literature

Correction: Mr. Feenie asked Eric to turn in a paper from years ago. He had never turned it in. It wasn't current material.

[Cory and Shawn are listening to the radio for the results of a horse race.]
Radio Announcer: And now the results of the fifth race at Pimlico.
Cory: Come on Neckflap, baby!
Radio Announcer: And the winner is Ne... [Cory accidentally unplugs the radio before he hears the result.]
Cory: Nuh!? What kind of name is Nuh!?
Shawn: You idiot, you ripped the plug out of the wall!
Cory: Well he said "Nuh." It's gotta be Neckflap. What other horse starts with "Nuh"?
Shawn: [reading the names of the horses from the newspaper.] Okay, we got uh, Neckflap, Nux Vomica, uh, Nunzio's Dream, and remarkably a horse called Nuh.



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.



Topanga is talking to Cory and she says, "My Aunt Prudence wouldn't even know who Romeo and Juliet are!" When her Aunt Prudence knocks on the door, she is played by actress Olivia Hussey, who played Juliet, in the 1968 film Romeo and Juliet, also starring Leonard Whiting as Romeo.
