25 Years After Leaving Bayside High, Here's What The Cast of "Saved By The Bell" Are Up To Now

- Page 1


AOL TV named Saved By The Bell one of the "20 Best School Shows of all Time," and I'm sure everyone who's reading this article can agree with that sentiment.

The American TV sitcom aired from 1989 to 1993, but has recently been classified as "educational and informational." That's cool and all, but it was also super-duper funny.

It was one of the shows we looked forward to the most in the early '90s, and it helped launch the careers of some of these teen actors.

Here's what the main cast of the show have been up to!

Tiffani Thiessen - Kelly Kapowski

I'm sure most guys watched this show just to ogle at Tiffani's character on screen. The cheerleader was everything a teenage boy wanted in his life, and her popularity led her to continue working as an actress.

The 43-year-old mother of two has launched her own cookery show last year called Dinner At Tiffani's, and her guests included old co-stars like Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley.

Mario Lopez - A.C. Slater

Bayside's wrestling jock has had the most successful career after he left the show.

Lopez is now the host of Extra, MTV reality shows America's Best Dance Crew and MTV's Top Pop Group. He previously hosted The X Factor, Pet Star, Miss America pageant shows, and also co-hosted The Wendy Williams Show.

Jessie Spano - Elizabeth Berkley

Bayside's class president Jessie Spano had both brains and beauty. Berkley had more success playing in Saved By The Bell than in any other projects she's done to date.

The 45-year-old actress has made appearances on shows like New Girl, Dancing with the Stars, CSI: Miami, and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Although her acting career didn't kick off like she'd hoped it would, she had time to publish a guide for teen girls in 2011 called, Ask Elizabeth: Real Answers to Everything You Secretly Wanted to Ask About Love, Friends, Your Body... and Life in General.

But what's Screech, Zach, and Lisa been up to ever since they left Bayside?

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie


'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of


'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
