Joshua Matthews is the youngest member of the Matthews family. Soon after his birth, complications have appeared, to the point where Shawn came back from his road trip just to comfort Cory. He is a quite important character in the last episode, as Cory has a very serious talk with him about life, after which he comes to the conclusion that he finally understand what Boy Meets World means. He tells him that he might find a best friend like Shawn, a beautiful girl like Topanga, and that Mr. Feeny will probably teach him in every grade he ever has. This way, Cory passed on all of the knowledge he gained in his life to him, ending the series in a beautiful and touching way.
Amy became pregnant with him in "Prom-ises, Prom-ises".
He was born in "My Baby Valentine".
There are complications involving a respiratory infection, but he pulls through in "Resurrection".
Eric pretended to be his father to get a girl in "The Truth About Honesty".
Cory talks to him about his future in "Brave New World".
He is only portrayed by Daniel Jacobs in "Brave New World", otherwise he is portrayed by various babies.
Daniel Jacobs' appearance as him in "Brave New World" severely alters the continuity of the show, as he should be much younger. This is a continuity error.
He played a larger role in Girl Meets World, appearing as a teenager who has a close relationship with Cory and Riley.
The writers of Boy Meets World, Ellen Idelson and Rob Lotterstein were responsible for making Alan and Amy Matthews having him as their fourth child and they never even explained an actual reason for it.
