Trivia

+ Rider Strong claimed that he loved the leather jacket he wore on the show so much that he didn’t want to return it to Disney when the series was over. He took it with him to New York when he went to school but it was stolen out of his car in Brooklyn. Instead of giving it back, he switched it out with another jacket and Disney had no idea.

+ Several times throughout the years they mention how Cory and Topanga first met, but it’s never the same story. Their first meeting happened at several different ages and places.

+ Despite having hundreds of kids sign up to audition for the part of Shawn, Rider Strong was the first actor that Producer Michael Jacobs saw, and the last.

+ Even though Jack Hunter is Shawn’s older brother in seasons 5-7, in reality Matthew Lawrence (Jack) is 2 months younger than Rider Strong (Shawn).

+ In the first season, the creators and writers of the show wanted to give Cory a second best friend along with Shawn but none of the child actors they tried stuck. The various child actors they tried always had the same assigned chair at the end of the table on the John Adams Middle School cafeteria set. Because of the revolving door of child actors the show went through trying to fill that role, the cast came to jokingly refer to that chair as “the death chair”.

+ Occurring around the fifth season of the show, Rider Strong wanted to quit simply because he wanted to go to college. Michael Jacobs told him that they could work out a schedule so that he can go to college, and he did.
