The Original 'Saved By The Bell' Looked Very, Very Different

Jimmy Fallon reunited Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, Jessie Spano, and Kelly Kapowski on "The Tonight Show" this week. But for fans interested in going a little further down the "Saved By the Bell" rabbit hole, look no further.

It's pretty common knowledge that "Saved By the Bell" has its roots in a series called "Good Morning, Miss Bliss," which aired for one season and originated the characters of Zack, Screech, and Lisa. The series was then revamped into the "Saved By The Bell" we know and love today.

But what's not so well known is that NBC aired an original "Miss Bliss" pilot that looked even more different. The episode, which RollingStone recently unearthed, featured none of the actors who would eventually gain fame as the "Saved by the Bell" crew. It did, however, star a very young Jaleel White (aka Urkel), Brian Austin Green, and Jonathan Brandis.

Once you've picked your jaw up off the floor, enjoy this little trip back to childhood.
