Ben Savage and “Boy Meets World” creator Michael Jacobs have opinions on whether Mr. Feeny’s house was behind the Matthews home or next door to it.
Last month, stars Will Friedle and Danielle Fishel sparked an internet debate after a fan posted a poll about whether Feeny’s house was located in the side yard or the back yard.
“Boy, that really is up for debate,” Savage told Page Six at the ATX TV Festival over the weekend. “On the set it was the side yard, but I did always regard that as like … back yard? No, I guess I would have to lean on the fact that it was the side yard. In the episodes, if you looked at the script, it always said exterior back yard like when it introduces the scene, so then I think you would have to say it’s the back yard.”
He continued , “I’d say back yard. No, side yard. There is no answer is the truth.”
Jacobs also addressed the big mystery.
“Oh my God, where did this come from?” he asked Page Six. “Will called me three weeks ago and said, ‘Tell me, is it back yard or side yard?’ And I said, ‘What are you talking about?’”
He told us, “If you use your logic, it’s got to be the back door because all the teakwood surround, right? And the fence would be a backyard fence, why would you ever have a side-yard fence? However, if you look at the L-shape configuration, it smacks of side yard, it really does. In the end, it doesn’t matter, but the fact that this is what people hit on, that they like the show so much that it’s important to them, then we did good.”
Friedle was convinced it was the side yard, while Fishel took the stance that it was the back yard.
It’s a mystery that may never be solved, but at least now fans can watch the entire series on Hulu.
