Saved by the Bell

Model Students - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: During the opening credits, as Zack Morris walks into the frame of the school store, you can see the boom microphone briefly lower into the shot up near the EXIT sign on the wall. (00:01:20)

Timothy Conard

House Party - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Kelly said her youngest brother can burp his whole name Kenneth Leonard Kapowski in one burp. However in the previous year, Kelly had an infant brother named Billy. According to this info, unlikely Kenneth would be younger than Billy.

Slater's Sister - S4-E16

Plot hole: Lisa, Zack & Screech all talk to JB as if they have known her since she was little. However, they have only known Slater for approximately four years, so them knowing her from a little girl, as implied, wouldn't be possible.

Suggested correction: JB is only featured in one episode. The fact the kids knew her already (even if up to four years) doesn't mean she was known since a little girl...just that they all previously met her at some point.

Save the Max - S2-E3

Factual error: When Zack is given the old newspaper with Mr. Belding's article, the headline reads, "Picture on pages 3 and 4." When he looks at the picture, he looks at the middle of the paper, with quite a few pages at both sides of the newspaper. Pages 3 and 4 would be near the front and would be on opposite sides of the same page.

The Bayside Triangle - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: After the fashion show when Zack says "Sorry Lisa, I don't know what to say" an entire boom microphone assembly is visible and snatched out of view at the top of the screen.

School Song - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: Zack messes with the piano so it will give him a chance of winning. When Tori plays it sounds like she is messing up. But immediately following that screech plays the piano with no problem and there was no time to fix the piano.

Rent-a-Pop - S2-E7

Plot hole: After the meeting with Zack's "fake Dad", Mr. Belding informs Zack he wrote a letter to see the Dad again... However when the "real" Dad sees the fake "Belding" (whom the Dad didn't know was fake), the Dad never questioned about the "seeing him AGAIN" letter when this real Dad never met Belding before. In addition, wouldn't the Dad question this letter to Zack anyway?

King of the Hill - S1-E15

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Zack talks to Jessie about switching desks to be next to Kelly, you can see the top of the set for quite a few seconds including lighting, scaffolding and tops of the adjoining rooms. (00:06:15)

House Party - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Screech's mother kisses her Elvis statue before her trip while it is facing towards the right; indicating that this is the correct way that is should be facing. However, when she comes home after her trip the "new" statue is facing the same direction; right. She complains and says that the statue should always face towards the kitchen so he can see her cook; which is towards the left.

The Lisa Card - S1-E2

Plot hole: When the gang is helping Lisa earn tips at her waitress job, Slater says the more people she waits on the more tips she will make. So they take the food away from the customers before they even get to eat it. How in the world would she make 37 dollars in tips with service like that? Horrible service like that would earn her no tips at all.

No Hope With Dope - S3-E21

Character mistake: Brandon begins the scene giving his speech while he is sitting/leaning on the desk. The students all move into the picture from both sides and gather around Brandon then they all say, "There's No Hope With Dope". After the conversation with Mr. Belding, they watch the commercial they just shot (beginning with each student giving his/her opinion about drugs). Then Zach says his speech while sitting/leaning on the desk. He stands up, the rest of the students and Brandon move in and gather around Zach, then Brandon gives his anti-drug speech.

Screech's Woman - S1-E5

Audio problem: When Violet is singing in front of the audience at the final Glee Club performance, her voice does not match her lips.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: When Zack is in middle school, his teacher, Miss Bliss wants to talk to his father. At that time his father's name is Peter Morris and he is an older man and unmarried. When Zack is in high school and Mr. Belding wants to talk to him about the ski trip, his name is Derrik Morris and he has a mother.

King of the Hill - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Max has Zack bring Kelly a Coke, you can see the glass only has one straw in it. You can verify that it's simply not two straws stuck together when he lays it on Kelly's table. As he lays it down, the straw swoops around the outer perimeter of the glass and it can be verified that it's only one straw. However, when Kelly decides to take a drink of it there are now two straws in the glass.

King of the Hill - S1-E15

Plot hole: Zack was told by Slater that Kelly was excused from going to detention by Belding because Belding found out she saved Screech's life... Yet only 3 students knew about the fake "choking" stunt - Zack and Screech did this stunt to get Kelly into detention (so they wouldn't have said anything), and Kelly unlikely would say anything as generally students will say anything to get excused and usually are ignored by the teacher or principal who use authority to make the student's detention stand. So who else could have told Belding?

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the 1st season (the Ms. Bliss episodes), Zack mentioned to Screech in one episode that he had good news for Screech's brother. But in the Bayside episodes, Screech confirmed being an only child (specifically said in the episode "Slater's Sister").

No Hope With Dope - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When the group first finishes filming, when everyone says "There's No Hope With Dope!" Zack points his index finger out twice in a row to the cameras, but then when watching the playback of the film, Zack only points once.

Pipe Dreams - S3-E11

Deliberate mistake: When Zack brings an oil covered Becky to the biology teacher, you can see that it's a fake duck.

Buzz

The Wicked Stepbrother (2) - S3-E14

Character mistake: While holding the fake raffle, Zack says Mr. Belding won't be back for two days. Mr. Belding shows up suddenly, surprising the boys that he's back early - however, at the end of the scene, Slater says to Belding, "we weren't expecting you back til tomorrow."

Show generally

Continuity mistake: During 8th grade in one episode, Zack talks to Ms. Bliss about having had to use his sister's bike for a project. In high school, many episodes have Zack being an only child (further proven several times when Derrick Morris would tell Zack that "he and his mother were more important than his job").

Mr. Belding: Go to class, learn something.

Trivia: During the final 2 seasons of Saved by the Bell, most notably the season with Tori and the one following it, look for actor Casper Van Dien in the background of some episodes. He appeared in many scenes throughout the final 2 seasons as a random background extra, most notably in the locker hallway scenes. This was before he made it big in Hollywood.
