The "Saved By The Bell" finale aired 20 years ago on May 22, 1993, but the Bayside High crew will forever be in our hearts.
From caffeine pills to oil drills, Hot Sundae to house parities, the Max to the mall, Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Samuel "Screech" Powers (Dustin Diamond), Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies), Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) and even Tori Scott (Leanna Creel) made lasting impressions on every child of the '80s and '90s.
Like they sang at their high school graduation in the "Saved By The Bell" finale, "Now our high school story finally ends. But years from now, no matter where we travel, we'll all look back and think about our friends."
And that we will. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the "Saved By The Bell" finale, check out 20 reasons we still love this childhood gem in video, photo and GIF form (and in no particular order).
