“Boy Meets World” and “Woman Meets World” creator Michael Jacobs says he took a whole lot of “warmth” when he determined that Shawn Hunter and Angela Moore wouldn’t find yourself collectively.
“It was one of many early interracial relationships on tv the place we by no means talked about that facet of it. We simply by no means thought something of that. And to be known as forward-thinking [by press] for doing that, it’s horrible,” Jacobs advised Web page Six on the ATX TV Pageant. “So the other spectrum of that was, effectively it was an interracial relationship. What’s the accountability of claiming they didn’t find yourself collectively? That to me is an instance of backwards pondering as effectively. Overlook the colour. They by no means meshed. Each episode was about why Shawn and Angela wouldn’t maintain.”
Jacobs defined that the couple, who had been portrayed by Rider Robust and Trina McGee, wanted one another to seek out relationships that basically labored.
“I consider each choice I made about each reveals, that was the one which I in all probability acquired essentially the most resistance on, however for what I at all times thought was the fallacious purpose,” he advised us. “There can solely be one Cory and Topanga and if Cory and Topanga and Shawn and Angela succeed, it lessens what I at all times thought was the mantra of the core present.”
On the finish of “Boy Meets World,” which is now streaming on Hulu, Angela leaves to journey to Europe together with her army father. It was revealed within the reboot “Woman Meets World” that Angela went on to marry somebody within the army and Shawn wed Maya’s mom Katy.
