Richard Linklater's Oscar nominated Boyhood, which follows one young boy's life over 12 years, has been lauded for its originality. But this mash-up poses the question: is the true original Boy Meets World? Of course it is!

Warning: If you are a '90s kid who has a healthy relationship with emotions, wait to watch this until you're alone.
