Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why were Kelly
and Jessie replaced by Tori during their senior year?
A: Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley wanted to leave the show
halfway through twelfth grade episodes, so they were replaced by Leanna
Creel (Tori) and the half-season of Tori shows was interspersed with the
half-season of Kelly/Jessie shows in order to give the impression that
they were all there, just not in the same scenes. For more information,
check out the History link on this site.
Q: Why did the
SBTB gang live in Indiana in junior high, and then turn up in the same
school with only a different name and a few different characters in California?
A: There isn't a solid explanation for that except that SBTB went through
a lot of changes between junior high and middle school, including its
move from Disney to NBC. For more information, check out the History link
on this site.
Q: Is SBTB still
shown on TV?
A: Yes! You can check this site for your local listings.
Q: Where can I
find lyrics to the songs that Zack Attack (the SBTB gang's band) sang
on the show? Is there anywhere to find sound files for them?
A: You can find lyrics to all the Zack Attack songs and other songs performed
on SBTB by clicking on the Extras link on this site and then clicking
on Saved By The Bell Song Lyrics.
Q: Did the SBTB
cast really sing those songs on the show and soundtrack? If not, who did
A: The SBTB cast did not sing those songs themselves, they were lip synching
to recordings. I don't know who actually performed those songs, nor do
I know anyone who does. The actual singers are not credited on the show's
credits, soundtrack liner notes, etc.
Q: Speaking of
SBTB music, what is that song they play at Zack and Kelly's wedding?
Do you know the title or who sings it?
A: That was one of SBTB's biggest mysteries, and by far the most frequently
asked question. I've
heard it referred to as "Wedding Song" (or occasionally "Offer Me
Your Hand"). Turns out "When It's For You" was
written by Jay Gruska and Paul Gordon and sung by Allen Sovory.
Q: Where can I
find information about individual episodes of SBTB?
A: Check out the Episode Guide link on this site.
Q: Where can I
get information about each of the SBTB cast members?
A: You can find some information at the Cast and Where Are They Now? links
on this site. If that's not enough for you, go to the Internet Movie Database
and search for them by name, or use your favorite search engine to find
Q: I heard a rumor
that [insert cast member name here] died. Is this true?
A: No. All of the SBTB cast members are alive and well. Please visit the
Where Are They Now? link for updates on their individual careers.
Q: Why do you have cast information for Dennis Haskins and Leanna
Creel, but not for Leah Remini, Tori Spelling, etc.?
A: I chose to include cast biographies for the "regular"
cast members of the series only. I didn't want to get into including information
for recurring characters, because I would be in over my head trying to
find information and pictures for the actors and actresses who played
Stacey, Violet, Pete, Ginger, Mr. Tuttle, etc., etc. My argument is that
I only included cast members who were listed in the show's opening credits.
By this reasoning, you could make a good case for me to include Ed Alonzo
(Max), not to mention all the other cast members from "Good Morning
Miss Bliss," but at this point I have no plans to do so. In the end,
it all comes down to the fact that this is just how I chose to do it.
You can always search for information on any actor or actress at http://www.imdb.com.
Q: Where can I
buy SBTB merchandise?
A: Most SBTB merchandise is not sold in stores anymore, but you can
still find used books, dolls, the SBTB game, trading cards and more by
searching for "Saved by the Bell" at http://www.amazon.com
For other merchandise click on the Extras link on this site.

I use the pictures from your site on my SBTB site?
