All the Information on the New Saved By the Bell

While we may not get details of Tiffani's birthday plans that doesn't mean you can't relive her most iconic moments as Kelly Kapowski on Saved By the Bell. Scroll through our gallery below and get lost in the nostalgia.

You've Got to be Zit-ting Me

We've all been teens, so we know how horrifying a zit is! When Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) gets one, she uses a cream that turns out to be too good to be true...and turns her entire face maroon. Luckily, however, it's confused as her showing school spirit, meaning she still gets to walk away as the homecoming queen.

Saving the Day

The cool place to be was obviously The Max, which made it all the more heartbreaking when it was announced that the popular hangout would be closing for owing $10,000 in back rent. However, Kelly and the gang save the day when they discover their school's old school radio station and use it to help save The Max.

Personal Prom

When Kelly couldn't afford to go to prom in season two, we were crushed, until Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) surprises her with a romantic prom picnic. Basically, these two were a dream couple growing up.

Drama Queen

Talk about literal drama. When the kids have to do a version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves for their high school play, Zack is upset that Kelly isn't playing Snow White, meaning he'll have to kiss someone else. But leave it up to their friends to devise a new take on the classic, arranging the play so that Kelly and Zack can share a kiss in the end.

Accidental Model

OK, so it was actually a little weird that Zack made a calendar using pics of the hottest girls in school (pulling, yet another, one of his typical schemes), but at least Kelly got the last laugh when it got her noticed by modeling agents.

Shipping It

It's only fitting that the two characters tied the knot in the made-for-TV movie that came after the series Saved by the Bell: The College Years sequel. We're nostalgic just thinking about how we shipped this couple on TV for so long and seeing them get married was a proper finale to the gang.

An Interesting Reunion

This isn't canon as it was a sketch for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but we still enjoyed watching a re-imagined version of Bayside High where Jimmy Fallon plays a student and turns out Kelly is pregnant. While the sketch made us laugh, it also reminded us how much we miss the crew.
