Boy Meets World

Class Pre-Union - S1-E9

Trivia: Guest star Jim Abbot reportedly didn't know he was going to be appearing in this episode. He thought he was just there to visit the set and meet the cast and crew. He became extremely nervous when he arrived, and they just handed him a script. Rider Strong speculated it was a miscommunication, as the producers probably asked him to make an appearance, which Abbot misinterpreted as visiting.

Trivia: Will Friedle said he was approached by Michael Jacobs towards the end of season one and told that he was gaining too much weight, following the filming of a scene where he hops over a fence. He attributed this to having a case of Coke placed in his trailer every morning that would be gone by the end of the day. He proceeded to slim down ahead of filming for season two.
