It's been just about two decades since Saved by the Bell went off the air, but still we find ourselves missing the Bayside gang. Luckily, we get to see the cast take on new projects, with Tiffani Thiessen on White Collar and Elizabeth Berkley channeling Jessie Spano in this week's "I'm So Excited" number for Dancing With the Stars. Recently, Mark-Paul Gosselaar even took on his Zack Morris persona to say what Zack would be like in 2013. Our Bayside love story goes way back to 1989, and to celebrate our obsession with all things Saved by the Bell, we're taking a look back at all the reasons we can't get enough of Zack, Kelly, and the rest of the group. Grab a varsity jacket and let's remember why we always have, and always will, love Saved by the Bell:
We fell for Zack early, and we fell hard.
He has a wink we can't resist.
In fact, he has all the best facial expressions.
He's the class clown, the jock, and the heartthrob
Plus, he has a crazy sidekick, Screech.
And then there's AC Slater, who's all muscles and mullet.
Not to mention his epic dance moves.
He can do THE SPLITS.
Don't even get us started on the ballet/leotard situation.
He's like a giant teddy bear. He even nuzzles lizards.
