Character Bio

The elder brother of Cory. Early on in the show Eric is portrayed as a suave and popular kid, this contrasts with Cory, who has trouble finding his niche in school. Eric's character devolves from a suave elder brother to an irrational moron serving as comic relief. When Eric struggles to get into college, Mr. Feeny is the one who teaches Eric many lessons and eventually puts him on the right track again. Eric views Mr. Feeny as a mentor, and as a running joke in the series he often stands outside Mr. Feeny’s fence shouting for Feeny to come out. Though Eric’s own friends are rarely seen or mentioned, he develops a closeness with Cory and his friends. A common, recurring theme is that Eric is far smarter and savvier than he appears and has hidden, untapped potential, and is often impressing his friends and family who underestimate him. He ultimately ends up moving to New York along with Cory, Shawn and Topanga, following his graduation from college.
