Hey, hey, hey, hey – what is going on here? This year marks Saved by the Bell’s 25th anniversary: The show, which premiered in August 1989, has spent nearly a quarter century in the pop culture matrix.
Thanks to Bayside High’s gang of teen troublemakers, viewers have learned the appropriate way to style high-wasted shorts, the dangers of caffeine pills, hilarious tactics to escape detention and much more. To mark Saved By The Bell’s big birthday, we brought the cast back together.
Kelly, Zack and the rest of the crew have reunited for PEOPLE in the past, but this time is slightly different. With a little help from Photoshop, the Bell actors met up with their younger selves to reminisce about their high school days.
