Anyone who was a kid in the early Nineties will know the following things:
1. That the best thing about the school holidays was getting up early to watch Saved By The Bell every day.
2. Whether they’d rather be Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano or Lisa Turtle.
3. What comes after ‘When I wake up in the morning, the alarm gives out a warning…’
Well, good news, Bayside fans: Zach, Kelly, Jessie, AC Slater and (yes) Mr Belding have got back together. The SBTB cast reunited for a sketch on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and it was a-may-zing. But first, let’s TIME OUT! Zach Morris-style, to remind ourselves of the gang in their big-haired heyday:
And this is how they look now…
Some thoughts and observations. Firstly, just: the Lycra. Wow.
Jessie and Slater look NO DIFFERENT. Also: Jessie Spano, unlikely style icon.
Zach: the tragedy of receding hairlines.
Never mind Romeo and Juliet, these are the only star-crossed lovers that matter.
And, lastly: where oh where is Lisa Turtle? To answer the earlier question, she was the one we always wanted to be.
Watch the reunion in full here. All together now: ‘It’s alright cos I’m…’
