Remember watching Boy Meets World after coming home from school? NUDM took the liberty of reminding you in Block 2 with a celebrity video message from William Daniels, better known to the '90s kids in the audience as Mr. Feeny, with Today hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. Get to know your celeb guest stars:
- Mr. Feeny’s got a penchant for presidents: He’s played both President John Quincy Adams (A Woman for the Ages) and President John Adams (1776) 20 years apart, and taught at the fictional John Adams High School in “Boy Meets World.”
- Daniels graduated from Northwestern in 1949, where he was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity.
- Kotb is a three-year breast cancer survivor. She now advocates for increased awareness.
- Kathie Lee Gifford may have had a role in your childhood without you even knowing it: She lent her voice to the Hercules TV series on Disney Channel and Hey Arnold!, and appeared in The Amanda Show and That’s So Raven.
- Gifford has a decorated career: She was born in Paris, France and was nominated for 11 Emmys over 15 years for her work co-hosting “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee.”
