Television of the ’90s holds a special place in the hearts of many viewers, especially those who were teens in the ’90s. From Saved by the Bell to Friends and more there were so many great series and sitcoms that dominated the decade, and many of the characters from the shows have become simply iconic, both for good and bad reasons. ’90s television was often family-friendly, positive, and hilarious and reminds many of a more innocent time. Take a look back at some of the most unforgettable ’90s characters with this list:
20. Hated: Samuel “Screech” Powers
Saved by the Bell would not have been nearly the same or nearly as iconic without its core cast of characters, but it was clear that some were much more loved than others. Although Samuel “Screech” Powers was a necessary character to round out the Bayside High group, it didn’t take long for him to rub audiences the wrong way. Although it was easy to feel sorry for Screech sometimes, his annoying characteristics were often over-powering and the joke of Screech began to wear off. Looking back on the character there were many instances where he exposed secrets, got his friends into trouble, or created unnecessary chaos that makes it hard to shrug off just because of his quirky aloofness, it was simply just annoying and at times being a bad friend.
