This show was first part of NBC’s Saturday morning lineup. The main characters were Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), a good looking 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.
