Situation Comedy. Broadcast on NBC from August, 1989 until September, 1993 when it was retitled Saved By the Bell: The College Years, and broadcast for another year until February, 1994. This show was first part of NBC’s Saturday morning lineup. The main characters were Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), a goodlooking schemer who always thought he had everything under control, but his plans were usually thwarted, Kelly (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) his girl friend, A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), his friendly rival for Kelly’s affection and control of the school through manipulation, and Samuel “Screech” Powers (Dustin Diamond), the school nerd who wears red high tops. Another friend, Jessie (Elizabeth Berkley), wore both white and black high top chucks occasionally.

The Saturday morning show remained popular throughout the early nineties, and as the cast grew up, they eventually became seniors and graduated. Screech also appeared in different colored high tops as the series progressed, including maroon and pine green. Throughout these years Zack usually wore white leather Converse Dr. J hightops.

In its last year, the students entered college and the series was changed to Saved by the Bell: The College Years and shown in prime time. New characters were added in the college years show, including Michael Rogers (Bob Golic) who played their resident advisor, Professor Lasky (Patrick Fabian) an anthropology instructor, and Dean Susan McMann (Holland Taylor) toward the end of the show.
