The big news last night was the Saved by the Bell Jimmy Fallon reunion on The Tonight Show.
Fallon has been promising to host a reunion for years, and so it happened, with the talk show transforming into Bayside High School. Jimmy explains that he attended the school, and in the reunion sketch he plays “new student” Jimmy Fallon, who hangs out with friends Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, Jessie Spano, Kelly Kapowski, principal Mr. Belding, and even the brick cell phone. The original actors — Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Dennis Haskins — all reprised their roles, as Jimmy details his plans to move to New York and do big things, like join the cast of Saturday Night Live and host his own talk show.
Screech and Lisa were not invited to the party. Who knows why. But there are a bunch of fun references to past episodes and some of the actors’ real histories, as well as twists added to the show’s plot.
The video at the top of the page presents the full sketch, and unlike some of these things, this one is really worth sitting through. The video under that offers a news report on the event, as well as some other pop culture events that hit the talk show circuit last night.
