More ‘TGIF’ on Hulu

(Pictured above: ‘Boy Meets World’)

Last week, The Savvy Screener reported on Hulu’s premiere of several shows from ABC’s iconic Friday night “TGIF” block– with the notable exception of Boy Meets World. As if on cue, Hulu on Friday announced the addition of all 158 episodes of that sitcom to its lineup.

Boy Meets World arrives through a deal with Disney-ABC that also gives Hulu 204 episodes of ABC’s non-TGIF hit series Home Improvement and 65 episodes of yet another TGIF show, Dinosaurs.

Boy Meets World, starring Ben Savage, ran for seven seasons (1993- 2000). Tim Allen won a Golden Globe and received an Emmy nomination for Home Improvement, which ran eight seasons (1991-1999). Dinosaurs, from The Jim Henson Company, starred a cast of puppets and ran four seasons (1991-1994).

Hulu’s other TGIF series are Full House, Family Matters, Step by Step, Perfect Strangers and Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.
