Remember back when "Boy Meets World" was your favorite show was on TV and there was that chick named Topanga who was a total goody-goody but who still, annoyingly, had the best hair ever to hit the small screen? So do we, children of the 80s, so do we. But...we're here to tell you that things have changed. Once the Hermione of her generation, Topanga -- or, really, Danielle Fishel, the actress who played Topanga -- has posed for Maxim magazine.

The shoot is in honor of the fact that "Boy Meets World" is coming out with a reunion series, wherein Topanga and Cory (Ben Savage) have a teenage daughter of their own (why YES, they do seem young to be the parents of a teenager, we agree).

So, what else does one do when one gets a reunion show besides pose for Maxim?

Well, pose for Playboy, but Topanga is classier than all that.

In the interview that accompanies the shoot, Fishel confirms that her character was in fact named after Topanga Canyon:

Michael Jacobs, who created Boy Meets World, says he was driving down the highway when production called and said, “We need a name for this character!” He happened to be driving past Topanga Canyon, so he said, “Topanga.” He says that if they had called him two miles later, I would’ve been named Canoga, which is the next exit.
