These are the things you miss when you step away from the internets. Two days ago! Two! Jimmy Fallon started a serious effort to reunite the cast of Saved By The Bell. Of course we’re totally rooting this thing on.
One of the best birthday presents I ever got was Scotty D. paid Mr. Belding to call me up and wish me a happy birthday. SRSLY! You can have Belding wish your friend a happy birthday. It was surreal and odd. We chatted for about a minute before the awkward silence set in. The entire “conversation” consisted of me going OMG! OMG! Actor Dennis Haskins reduced me to a 12-year-old incoherent fool.
I thought it was pretty amusing how Jimmy Fallon said “step one” was getting Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding). Haskins was probably wandering outside the set waiting to make birthday calls. Poor, poor dirty old man Haskins.
Seriously though — go sign the petition! Inspired by Beldings’s rousing words, I signed it. We just want to know why the hell Lark Voorhies has been in hiding all these years. Everyone else has been doing something – they haven’t fallen off the face of the planet.
Also, why stop at Mr. Belding and the six main characters. Why not get Tory – the motorcycle chick who mysteriously replaced Kelly and Jesse for one season – in this business and Stacy Carosi from the beach season, Ms. Bliss their 8th grade teacher when the show was curiously set in Indiana and not California, Max the crazy diner owner, etc. Don’t even get me started about tossing in Tori Spelling, Scott Wolf and Bridgette Wilson-Sampras (Ms. Veronica Vaughn from Billy Madison).
