10 Things We Miss The Most About Saved By The Bell
It has been a long time since we took a journey down the halls of Bayside High with the best group of high school friends anyone could ever want. Long before high school drama started to look like One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl or The O.C. we had Saved by the Bell, where the biggest problems were lying to your parents and taking caffeine pills. Saved by the Bell ran for four seasons from 1989-1993 and, of course, one additional season of Saved by the Bell: The College Years. And while we will take any opportunity to watch re-runs or tune in on Netflix, it wasn’t until Jimmy Fallon brought most of the gang back for a reunion did we realize how much we miss it. Just to be clear we’re talking about the original Saved by the Bell group, none of that “New Class” nonsense. So take a trip down memory lane with 10 Things We Miss About Saved By The Bell.
10. The Theme Song
Without a doubt growing up in the ’90s was a great and if you were a ’90s kid you were especially privy to the excellent theme song choices for shows at the time. Friends, Fresh Prince of Bel Air and, of course, Saved by the Bell have some of the most recognizable theme songs that even to this day you can probably still sing off the top of your head with no background music. “Saved by the Bell” the song was so catchy and quick you couldn’t help singing along with lyrics: ” if the teacher pops a test, I know I’m in a mess and my dog ate all my homework last night.” Sure you probably didn’t love going to school but you also probably couldn’t wait to watch the school-time adventures of Zack and the gang which all began with this memorable tune.
Each character had their own comedic chops but without a doubt, Dustin Diamond’s character of Screech was present for fueling the humor of the show. Put aside all the horrible things Diamond has since said about the show and the odd things he has also been involved in since and remember all the great Screech lines that we got from the show. Whether chatting with Zack or yearning after Lisa Turtle, Samuel ‘Screech’ Powers definitely walked to the beat of his own drum and sometimes he was perfectly aware of his awesome awkwardness.
