Meet young Zack Morris, perhaps the most enterprising student at the Bayside School in Palisades, California. By Zack's own admission, he loves school...too bad that classes get in the way. Zack sees himself as a heartthrob, and vies with new student A.C. Slater for the attentions of Kelly, the prettiest girl in the school. Often involved in their outlandish plots are Screech, the class clown and electronics genius, and Lisa, the school's fashion plate. Jessie tries to be the voice of sanity, often persuading the gang to do the right thing. School principal Mr. Belding tries desperately to connect with the younger generation but always misses the mark. But Max, owner of the hangout, knows how to reach the kids as he serves up dazzling magic tricks along with the hamburgers.
