The Late Movies: Saved by the Bell's Musical Numbers

I love Saved by the Bell more than is probably reasonable for a grown woman. (Need evidence? Click here and here.) One of my favorite things about the show was always its impromptu and unexplained musical numbers. Here are six moments when the gang from Bayside song burst into song.

Hot Fudge Sundaes

In perhaps the most memorable (and mocked) episode of SBTB, Jessie, Kelly and Lisa form an all-girl group called Hot Sundaes. Then Jessie gets hooked on caffeine pills to balance her busy schedule and, well, you know the rest ...

The Five Aces

The gang performs at a '50s-themed dance. Here they are practicing. To see the actual performance, click here. (Totally worth it.)

The School Song

After the student body turns on Zack for rigging the contest to write a new school song, Screech's terrible entry wins. Fortunately, his pals help out with some revisions.

The Glee Club

In this episode the gang backs Screech's gal pal Violet Bickerstaff (played by Tori Spelling) as she solos in the choir. Also in this episode: a very young, pre-Party of Five Scott Wolf.

Friends Forever

In a totally over-the-top dream sequence episode, Zack envisions his friends as a successful band, Zack Attack. Their hit song "Friends Forever" makes them famous. Their rock star status tears them apart.

Zack and Kelly's Break Up Song

While the show's quintessential couple is ending their relationship, their friends are singing "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?"

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.


Barnes & Noble's special edition Mister Rogers Funko Pop!

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
