Saved by the Bell was an early 1990s sitcom starring Zachary “Zach” Morris, A.C. “Bulging Biceps” Slater and of course, Samuel “Screech” Powers.
Screech was the lovable spazoid who roamed the halls of Bayside High always ready with a squeaky-voiced quip or a nerdtastic facial tic to impress the ladies.
And his wardrobe? Spectacular.
I bet you didn’t know that Screech also played an historic part in some of our more historical moments in history….um…historically… Yeah, that sounded convincing.
Fine, you got me, he actually didn’t. But sometimes I wish he had.
Let’s start way back with the Declaration of Independence. I think you’d agree, Screech added just the right amount of levity needed at such a monumental moment in time.
See if you can spot him:
Wow, you’re good! You weren’t even distracted by all the tights and powdered wigs. Well done.
Moving on. Nothing says “spontaneous passion” more than the image below.
Well, except having Screech in the background ogling you with his creepy grin.
In honor of my favorite band’s 50 anniversary of their appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, I present to you Screech: The Sixth Beatle.
Sadly, the other Beatles promptly kicked him out due to his blatant refusal to adhere to the band’s strict “Must Have Cool Hair” rule.
Next the royal wedding. Here Screech manages to convey what a lot of us were thinking when Prince William leaned in to kiss his new bride Kate: ZOINKS!
And finally, probably the most heart-tugging image of all-time.
Sigh. [wiping tears] Still gets me right in the gut. Just south of the duodenum and slightly above the anal sphincter.
Inspiring, isn’t it? How on earth did he manage to get his legs so smooth and hairless?
And that wraps up History With Screech.
Up next, Mario Lopez as A.C. “Oops, I’ve Lost My Shirt Again” Slater revisits George Washington crossing the Delaware. See kids, history can be fun!
Until next time.

And now he’s a comedian doing standup. I think he’s scheduled for a gig here, soon. I’ll do everything I can to avoid that. I could never watch that TV show he was on. All of those kids in that pic look way too old to be high schoolers, too.
Really? He’s a comedian? Get out. I try to just remember him as the lovable Screech, it helps me sleep at night.
The Olympics are just so much better with Screech. Go Team Screech!
I really should have inserted him in a bobsled photo….
I think he should be the faces on the video that is going around where they added the fart sounds … this could be magic!
I KNEW his face looked familiar when I was watching that show. I just figured it was his every man good looks that were so common at the time. I didn’t realize that he photo(shopped)bombed every historical moment in history!! Good eye, Darla.
If I had to come up with one person who really shaped our history, it would be Screech.
My morning just came to a screeching halt. In the BEST way. Thank you for this. Oh my god.
Somehow I knew you’d appreciate this one, JD. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
How DID he get his legs so smooth?
Inquiring minds want to know…
teehee….And so shapely…he must do a ton of squats.
Doing some screeching of my own, down here in Ecuador.
Yeah, I think his name fits him perfectly.
He was right there in front of us all the time, everywhere, and we never even knew. Thank you Darla as always for bringing us the stories that matter.
I try to do what I can, V. Thank you for noticing.
Slater was on Ellen last week. I was really hoping for some type of Saved By the Bell reunion, but it didn’t happen…yet.
Slater was on Ellen? was he wearing his trademark hot pink tank top or the wrestler unitard?
And now I am screeching with laughter. Well done, lady, well done!
Somehow I knew you might like this one too, Pinot.
I can’t believe I missed knowing about this guy. I also can’t believe that I now know about him. Thanks Darla. Thanks a lot.
What? You didn’t know who Screech was? Has the world gone mad? Well, I am thrilled to let you in on all he’s done for humanity.
Screech as a Founding Father is my favorite one. He looks so happy to be there. Must be all those tights.
haha! You make me laugh, RP. Best comments ever.
What? No k8edid shout-out?
I’ve never seen Saved By the Bell, since I was too old even back when it was on, and watching it at my age would’ve had me branded a TV pedophile.
Oops, my bad on the Katy shout-out. It’s true, every time I see that photo now I think of her.
I can’t believe she made out with that sailor! What a little tramp!
I know, but i’m not surprised, she really is a total flirt that Katy.
That’s what we love about her.
Is that Downton Abbey’s Carson behind the royal couple?
Yes, it totally is!
I’m a little disturbed that I spent too much time looking at Screech’s imposibly smooth legs. I’m sure it’s just the Olympic spirit though. Right?
Absolutely. I’m just in awe at his shapely calves.
Reblogged this on womanwalkininfaith and commented:
I would post but I don’t want to tattle on myself…lol. enjoyed this.
No idea who Screech is………………….sorry I live in a cave under a rock………………lol
You are very lucky.
Screech rocks! Hilarious post.
Screech really does rock, in a geeky sorta way, but still.
I never knew how totally spazoid history could be. You should be a teacher, Miss Darla.
Just add Screech to the lesson and you’ve got a captive audience. Happy V Day to you, Peg. Or did I tell you that already?
You’re getting pretty extreme with your photoshopping there, young lady.
Also (I’m about to be a buzzkill), have you seen or read anything about what Screech is up to these days? He’s a world-class scumbag. Just a vicious, loathsome sack of hatred.
He sounds like he really bucked the “spoiled child actor” trend then?
*snicker* You said ‘duodenum’!
It is hands down my favorite medical term.
Yeah, but didn’t he also insert himself into some other unsavory spots? Just asking, cause I thought I heard that somewhere. Could be wrong.
I am waiting for Mario….
haha! I prefer to be oblivious to his career choices these days, it helps me sleep at night and keeps my lunch in my stomach where it belongs.
When I saw the title, I thought you might be talking about that great Newfoundland drink also called Screech. I’m sure there have been many historical moments with it too.
Hmm….really, I will have to do some research on this drink now.
One word: ZOINKS!
Freaking Screech. Who knew he was such an important part of humanity?
Inspiring. Screech’s photo bombs prove we can all make an appearance – I mean a difference – in history. Creative and funny, Darla.
I can’t stop laughing at the Declaration of Independence picture…hahahaha!
Now this, this was fucking funny!
