12 People You Forgot Guest-Starred on ‘Saved by the Bell’

This future King of Queens star was Zack’s summer fling when the gang worked at the Malibu Sands Beach Club. We loved Stacy Carosi because she was a sassy, sarcastic East-Coaster. And Zack didn’t immediately win her over – he had to work for it. You show him, Stacy!

Screech should have dropped his unrequited crush on Lisa (it was never gonna happen) and went for someone more in his league. Namely, Violet, played by a nerded-up Tori Spelling.

Yep – McSteamy was on SBTB! In the season 3 episode “The Game,” Dane played Tad (he's the one in the neon t-shirt), one of the gang’s opponents in a high-stakes beach volleyball game.

A grown-up Punky Brewster plays a new student at Bayside High in the season 4 episode “Screech’s Spaghetti Sauce.” Both Zack and Screech take a liking to her. But it turns out she’s totally high-maintenance (read: a gold-digging snob).

OMG remember the season 2 “Dancing to the Max” episode?! The. Best. The radio host plays himself in this episode, which has the Bayside High students competing in a dance contest to save The Max. Screech and a hobbled Lisa win with their dance, “The Sprain.”

Mrs. Ben Stiller guest-starred as Heather in the season episode “S.A.T.” In that episode, Zack inexplicably scores a 1502 on his S.A.T.s and Heather asks him to help her study. Zack, of course, doesn’t mind one bit.

Before he hit it big on Party of Five, Scott Wolf was just a lowly unnamed extra on SBTB. In various episodes he played everything from a waiter at the Max to a member of the school chorus.

Richards played – what else? – a bikini-clad beach babe in the last Malibu Sands episode. She pretends to drown so that Slater will save her. That's one way to flirt.

Remember sleazy Jeff? The older guy Kelly dumps Zack for? Yeah, we tried to forget too. After his much-hated SBTB role, Muldoon appeared on Melrose Place and the seminal Syfy classic, Ice Spiders.

This Being Mary Jane star played two different characters on Saved by the Bell: The New Class. She first played Hilary in the season 3 episode “Christmas Gift,” and then returned as Jennifer in season 4’s “The Tall and the Short of It.” Did anyone notice?

Before he was Jess on Gilmore Girls or Peter on Heroes, Ventimiglia took whatever roles he could get. That included a brief appearance on SBTB: The New Class, in the season 4 episode “Hospital Blues.”

The Nicholas Sparks movie favorite played an arrogant homecoming king named Chad Westerfield on the season one episode, “Homecoming King.” With a name like Chad Westerfield, how could he be anything BUT an arrogant homecoming king?
