Trivia

Elizabeth Berkley originally auditioned for the role of Kelly Kapowski and was turned down in favor of Tiffani Thiessen, but the producers liked Elizabeth so much that they created the Jessie Spano character especially for her to play.

Jennie Garth auditioned for the role of Kelly Kapowski

This show follows "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" (1987) which takes place at John F. Kennedy Junior High School, in Indianapolis, Indiana. When several of the students and Mr. Belding move up to Bayside High School in "Saved by the Bell" (1989) the series is suddenly set in Pacific Palisades, California.

Some episodes are actually re-edited episodes of "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" (1987).

Singer Michael Damian performed an alternate rendition of the show's theme song, which was used during the first season.

One of the degrees in Mr. Belding's office is for Kung Fu. It is above the filing cabinet next to his desk.

Lisa Turtle was originally written as white Jewish girl, but the producers liked Lark Voorhies, and gave her the part.

The original role of Miss Bliss of the pre-Saved by the Bell "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" (1987) (called Saved by the Bell in the reruns) was written for Sandy Duncan. Duncan was busy with "The Hogan Family" (1988), so Hayley Mills was cast instead.

When the original series "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" (1987) was being developed, producers were considering casting Brian Austin Green, Jaleel White, and Jonathan Brandis.

Dustin Diamond is the only actor to appear in all "Saved by the Bell" (1989) episodes, spin-offs and movies.

In the episode "Model Students" Kelly is talking about all the wonderful things about Paris and Lisa says that the best thing is cute guys named Mark-Paul. The character of Zach Morris is played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

The final "Graduation" episode had already been shot when the network ordered additional episodes. Tiffani Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley were attached to other projects by that time, necessitating the creation of a replacement character Tori, played by Leanna Creel. The Tori episodes aired in the middle of the other final season episodes to sidestep continuity problems (though the disappearance and later reappearance of Kelly and Jessie and vise versa for Tori- went unexplained).

Casper Van Dien made several uncredited appearances throughout the show's final year. He had one line in one show, and was often seen just as a simple background extra, mostly in the hallway scenes by the lockers.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar had to dye his hair blonde every two weeks while shooting the show.

The episode "Day of Detention" was the final shooting for the series.

Scott Wolf and Denise Richards made cameo appearances before making it to stardom. Tori Spelling ("Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990)) also made an appearance as a recurring character named Violet Bickerstaff - who was Screech's love interest.

Ed Alonzo's last episode was "Save the Max".

According to producer Peter Engel, at a meeting before the show had been created NBC President Brandon Tartikoff suggested the show be given a name that used the word bell (such as "When the Bell Rings"). One of Engel's colleagues then suggested the name "Saved by the Bell", which Tartikoff liked. Engel disliked the name but, believing that someone else probably owned the rights to the phrase "saved by the bell", went along with it. As luck would have it, NBC's legal department discovered that in fact nobody owned the rights to the phrase, and by the next day Engel's office was covered in large banners that said "Saved by the Bell".

In the episode Home for the Holidays, the Santa Claus in the show was credited as Himself.

Lisa's last name is Turtle, Jessie's middle name is Myrtle, and Zack's pet turtle's name is Myrtle.

Throughout the show, Screech had different lockers. In the first two seasons, his locker was near Belding's office; in the later seasons his locker was near the stairs.
