Some poetry is just timeless!
When things are a bit crazy, sometimes a little nostalgia can make everything better, and Danielle Fishel gave us the dose we didn't know we needed. Many of us know Fishel for playing Topanga Lawrence on the '90s sitcom, "Boy Meets World." Recently, she shared a reenactment of Topanga's performance arts poem titled "Donut in the Sky." The hilarious reenactment, posted to her Podcast's Instagram page, is performed side by side with the original clip, complete with the red lipstick scribble on her face.
If you were a preteen in the '90s then you're likely well acquainted with the original "Boy Meets World," which included all of Topanga's random ideas, Cory's eye rolls and Shawn's hair flips, and let's not forget Mr. Feeny. The show quickly became a classic, with just about every preteen in America feeling like the trio were their good friends that happened to live in the television. Growing up with them, we were going through some of the same things at the same time. Fishel fully committed to the reenactment donning a lace dress over leggings and lace-up boots to take us back to the beginning of a cultural phenomenon.
Fishel co-hosts a podcast called "Pod Meets World" with Rider Strong, who played Shawn, Cory's best friend, and Will Friedle who played Eric, Cory's older brother, on the popular teen sitcom. The podcast focuses on the three of them watching "Boy Meets World" from the beginning, which is why Fishel felt the need to channel her inner Topanga as they talked about her introduction on the show.
We won't solve world issues with "Donut in the Sky" but some poems and some performances are timeless in providing a little comical relief. I, for one, can't wait to see what scene they decide to recreate next.
