    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This Episode starts the 3nd spin off show since Good Morning Miss Bliss.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (7)

      • Both Saved By The Bell and Saved By The Bell The New Class retained the same opening theme song and opening credits designs for all 11 seasons the two shows aired on NBC.

      • This episode marks the 5th total season to be aired on NBC for the Saved By The Bell franchise.

      • There is a time continuity problem between Saved By The Bell , Saved By The Bell The New Class and Saved By The Bell The College Years - 1 - The New Class may possibly take place after Saved By The Bell The College Years 2.If this is correct then the origional Saved By The Bell crew would be several years older by the time period set in this episode.

      • Season 1 was released on DVD on January 25, 2005.

      • Judging by the fact when Mr. Belding chats to Megan, he tells her to "welcome back", which could only mean that the gang are all in the 10th grade.

      • Pamela Kosh reprises her role of Miss Simpson from the original Saved by the Bell series.

      • This is the only season that had all 6 new students be similar to the 6 old students. Scott was a lot like Zack Morris as in they're both charming and they both talk to the video camera. Tommy D. was a lot like Slater because of their toughness. Weasel was a lot like Screech in being nerdy, having curly hair and liking Gilligan's Island. Lindsay was a lot like Kelly Kapowski, because of how pretty they are. Vicki was a lot like Jessie Spano, because of how fussy they are over things. Megan was a lot like Lisa Turtle, because of their skin color and love for fashion.
