Boy Meets World
On Friday, Disney will attempt to revive TGIF when the anticipated Boy Meets World sequel series Girl Meets World debuts. But while the idea of revisiting Cory Mathews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) is millennial catnip, when was the last time any of us actually watched Boy Meets World?

When ThunderCats made its triumphant return to television in July, fans were outraged that Panthro, an integral part of the original '80s-era ThunderCats team, was absent without a satisfactory explanation. In the reboot, Panthro is first reported to be killed in action. Later, a false Panthro is revealed to actually be the evil Mumm-Ra in disguise. After all of this misdirection, it's a relief to know that we'll see the real Panthro back, however briefly, on Friday's episode (8:30/7:30c on Cartoon Network).
