First posted December 1, 2003 / Last Updated August 18, 2004 (Bonus Features Change)

June 2004 was the planned release date for the complete first season of "Boy Meets World", the successful family sitcom that aired for seven seasons (1993-2000) on ABC's Friday night "TGIF" lineup. The Season 1 boxset will now include a variety of exciting bonus features, and the first 22 episodes, on three discs.

This excellent series provided consistent laughs as it explored life from the perspective of Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), a middle child in a middle-class American family. Cory competes with older brother Eric (Will Friedle) and little sister Morgan (Lily Nicksay) for the attention of his parents Alan and Amy (William Russ and Betsy Randle). When not at home, Cory is trying to make sense of sixth grade, with his mischevious but well-intentioned best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), nerdy nemesis and teacher's pet Stuart Minkus (Lee Norris), and the otherworldly but sweet Topanga (Danielle Fishel). Things are a little more interesting when your teacher lives next door to you, and that's exactly what Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) does, providing lessons for his neighbor and pupil both in and out of the classroom.

In the first season, Cory takes on a geography bee, late-night baseball watching with his father, an IQ test, playing for the basketball team, the school play, and more. Comical, poignant, and endearing, you won't want to miss the Complete First Season of "Boy Meets World" on DVD.

Bonus features include audio commentaries and a bonus episode from season 4. Several bonus features that were originally announced (outtakes, deleted scenes, behind the scenes making-of featurettes, a "Where are they now?" retrospective) were not included on the final product. The new release date is August 24, 2004, and the set will carry a suggested retail price of $49.99.
