Funko's trying to help you relive the magic of the ‘90s and the awkwardness of coming of age with Cory and Topanga, two classic TV sitcom icons and proof that love conquers all. From the Pop! TV: Boy Meets World lineup, these two figures are currently available to pre-order from Amazon.com for $10.99 each.
I never watched an episode of Boy Meets World in my life. And, at least for a period of time (the early to mid-90s), I was definitely their target audience. I watched a lot of bad shows during the 1990's (heck, I saw Saved By The Bell: The New Class)...but never once, this one.
