Disney is embedded in the culture of Anaheim. It is where Walt Disney built his first theme park. But Disney reaches far beyond it’s kingdom in Anaheim. It has an entire universe unto itself on our TV screens.
The Disney Channel has been responsible for some very memorable, classic programming. Unfortunately, their best shows seem to be cancelled all too soon. “Boy Meets World” had a wonderful 7 year run on ABC, but will “Girl Meets World” meet an untimely demise due to the Disney Channel’s quick cancellation policy? If you could save “Girl Meets World,” would you choose to save it?
Save Disney shows!
For those interested in saving Disney shows, such as “Girl Meets World,” from premature cancellation, there is a website devoted to this cause. It is entitled “Save Disney Shows.” The first paragraph of their “About” section reads:
Save Disney Shows was founded and run by several members of the Save Kim Possible movement. Members who realized that Disney’s unspoken and unofficial 65 episode “rule” was not only going to affect Kim Possible, but other Disney Channel shows such as Lilo & Stitch, American Dragon Jake Long and Phil of the Future. These members took the initiative to create Save Disney Shows, a central organization to provide Disney related contact information and the resources necessary to run campaigns for any Disney Channel show.
Save ‘Girl Meets World’
In this video blog from “Save Disney Shows,” the host puts out the idea of starting a “Girl Meets World” campaign at 5:20. Though he notes that “Girl Meets World” is not even in its second season, he feels it has proven to be good enough to warrant exemption from the unofficial 65 episode rule at the Disney Channel. A vigorous campaign by devoted fans to keep its eventual 65th episode off the chopping block could be successful.
The video, in other regards, is dark and monotonous. It comments on some strife at “Save Disney Shows.” The leadership has wondered whether or not the “Save Lilo and Stitch” campaign was a failure. It has been wondered if perhaps the whole movement should have died when “Save Kim Possible” was a runaway hit and the show was granted an extra season.
A “Save Girl Meets World” campaign could be a great experience for older and younger fans, as well as rejuvenate “Save Disney Shows.” It will unite those who are learning about the universe of Cory and Topanga for the first time and those who grew up watching them when they were kids. It would be a good opportunity for adolescents and adults to find common ground over something. It could also reunify “Save Disney Shows.”
