91-Year-Old 'Boy Meets World' Actor William Daniels Stops Attempted Home Burglary

Who could forget Mr. Feeny's wisest advice: Never be afraid to throw down if you have to.


William Daniels, the actor most famous for portraying Mr. Feeny on the popular '90s sitcom Boy Meets World, was the victim of a burglary on Saturday, October 27. When thieves forced Daniels's backdoor open around 9:30 p.m., Daniels had to act quickly.

Thinking on his feet, Daniels made an ingenious move worthy of Mr. Feeny himself.

Quickly throwing on every light in the house, he scared away the intruders before they had a chance to steal anything.

Daniels' publicist was grateful everything turned out so well:

"Luckily, Mr. Daniels was able to frighten away the person, and the LAPD quickly responded. [He and his wife] are both well. Mr. Daniels thanks all his fans for their concern."

Anyone on Twitter who wasn't already a Feeny fan quickly became one.




Of course, many people made jokes about the quality life advice those burglars probably received.

Daniels' former co-stars Danielle Fishel and Will Friedle weighed in.


Perhaps it's time for another spin-off?



The robber is still at large and is right now, most likely, watching re-runs of Boy Meets World to try and make some sense of his life.
