'Saved by the Bell' Cast Returns to Bayside in Epic Reunion on Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)

Jimmy Fallon in Saved by the Bell skit
Need further proof that Jimmy Fallon is the best Tonight Show host our generation could have possibly asked for? Well, he just went and made the pop culture dreams of anyone who grew up in the late '80s, early '90s come true with the most jaw-droppingly, crazy awesome Saved by the Bell reunion sketch, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack), Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly), Mario Lopez (Slater), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie), and Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding).


Yep, Jimmy's taking FULL advantage of bringing his show to LA for the week! You really just have to see this to believe it actually happened.

See? AH-maaaazing! Seriously, for a second there, I thought Jimmy had edited himself into old footage of the show! Ha! That's a testament to how outrageously on-point the set was -- and the costumes!

And OMG, is it just me, or were all of them able to slip right back into character like it was riding a bike? And look the part, too! Guess the last 20+ years have been good to the sitcom's stars. Well, okay, maybe not for Dustin Diamond, who played Screech and was recently arrested for allegedly stabbing a man in a bar, and clearly wasn't present for this ... It bears noting Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle, also didn't show.

That said, all the little jabs about what the cast has done in their careers since the show ended -- Elizabeth Berkley starred in Showgirls, Mario Lopez joined the cast of Dancing With the Stars, Tiffani Theissen played Valerine Malone in Beverly Hills, 90210 -- were absolutely perfect, too. (Oh, and let's not forget that after graduating from Bayside, Jimmy did go on to star in SNL and date Nicole Kidman for a hot minute!)

Wow. Those of us who grew up watching the SBTB cast roam the halls of Bayside High seriously couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you, Jimmy! Now, would it be too much to ask for you to reunite the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 (Dylan and Brenda! Brandon and Kelly! Steve! Andrea Zuckerman!). That would be this '90s girl's ultimate!

Did this meet or surpass your expectations for a Saved by the Bell reunion?
