DS Icon: William 'Mr Feeny' Daniels
Played by William Daniels, Feeny was the centre point for the coming of age high school/college comedy. Acting as the strict disciplinarian, mentor, father figure, he was the fountain of all knowledge on subjects as varied and deep as education, girls, love and life. The antics and high-jinks of the Boy Meets World whippersnappers Corey, Shawn, Topanga and Eric would have been childish horseplay and banal TV viewing without Feeny's words of wisdom and wry sense of humour to smooth them over. The character was also fortunate that he was around in the last decade when it was still acceptable for an old man to spend the majority of his time hanging out with impressionable school kids.
