We're sure you all remember the teen heart-throb and sandy blonde protagonist of Saved By The Bell.
The absolute hunk that was Zack Morris was played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who is now hoping that the show will have it's reunion on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Hold on to your nostalgia hats, because Saved By The Bell is set to have it's 30-year-anniversary, so we suddenly feel infinitely older.
Jimmy Fallon previously had the cast-members back for a mini-reunion on-screen in 2015, which the internet was DELIGHTED for, and the star is hoping for another TV celebration.
The 44-year-old actor shot to fame back in 1989 playing the main character of the show, and it's now renowned as one of the biggest treats of the 1990s.
The 90s fashion alone has remained iconic, but we haven't seen much of the cast since the show ended, except for Mario Lopez and Gosselaar.
Lopez, who portrayed AC Slater, has remained in the TV business through his penchant for presenting. Mark-Paul has also stayed in the industry, playing roles in NYPD Blue, Franklin & Bash and now The Passage.
Gosselaar recently spoke to Metro, and stated that there are currently no plans to get the crew back together for the anniversary; "No, we haven’t discussed anything."
"I think the last time we did something for the 25th was with Jimmy Fallon, so possibly he might have something up his sleeve which would be great."
"I think we’d all gladly take up the offer if it was there to reprise that role with them."
PAY ATTENTION JIMMY. Give the world what it wants, and deserves.
You might remember them as your favourite brother-sister duo on TV: Josh and Megan.
We obsessed over Megan's evil tricks, and laughed at her and Josh's family dynamic all the way throughout our own childhoods.
You also probably still remember Josh’s iconic hushed whisper of “Megan….” whenever she played one of her iconic pranks on his character in the Nickelodeon show Drake and Josh.
This video by Los Angeles vlogger David Dobrik showing the two reuniting will honestly make you explode with nostalgia.
In the video, Dobrik is seen telling Josh Peck that he has a present “from Josh’s sister”, meaning Megan, of course.
After opening the gift from his little sis, Peck’s face was met with a pan full of whipped cream. Clearly, Miranda Cosgrove wasn’t finished playing pranks on her gullible Drake & Josh big bro. Never change, Megan, you evil genius.

When the two meet, it’s clear how delighted they both are to see each other after a whopping four year gap: “This is both of my worlds colliding! You look like a grown-up!” Josh exclaims.
Miranda responds by telling him, “You look good, boob.” Classic Megan.
Josh also jokingly told Miranda that he was “sorry I didn't invite you to my wedding. Thank you for not tweeting about it.”
There was MAJOR wedding-related drama last year regarding Josh not inviting Drake Bell to his nuptials to long-term girlfriend Paige O’Brien.
Bell was upset he didn’t get an invite from his Nickelodeon brother, and tbh so were we.

Apparently the drama has since died down, and the two are now getting along nicely. We hope…
Josh and Miranda marked the occasion with matching Instagram snaps, because if there isn’t photographic evidence these days, did it really happen?
We hope it doesn't take another four years for their next reunion.
Maybe Drake will pop by next time, he might even chuck in a 'HUG ME, BROTHA!' for good measure?
A girl can dream…

It's hard to believe that Josh is becoming a dad.
Not so long ago, Drake and Josh ruled our TV screens.
We fell in love with him as the chubby kid on the Nickelodeon show.
Now, he's seriously adulting and expecting his first child with his wife, Paige O'Brien.
Taking to Twitter, he announced the news in the most Josh-Peck-way.
Guys I did it! I’m finally down to my goal weight! Oh and we’re pregnant pic.twitter.com/y5s9p3GwYl

"Guys I did it! I’m finally down to my goal weight! Oh and we’re pregnant," he joked.
Fans were quick to offer their congratulations to the couple.
The pair wed in June 2017, and were surrounded by family and friends as they exchanged their vows in a Malibu ceremony.
However, famously Josh didn't invite Drake to the nuptials and the Internet hasn't forgotten.
Hilariously, fans trolled his Twitter announcement, asking if Drake would be invite to the baby shower, or even better: the birth.
Will drake be invited

Naturally the Drake and Josh references came thick and fast.
This is a personal favourite.
Will we be expecting this? pic.twitter.com/nE58Zg5iel

All joking a side, it's incredible news for the pair.
Since his Nickelodeon days, Josh continues to star in TV programmes.
He also has a YouTube channel and is a member of David Dobrik's vlog squad.
Here's hoping that when their baby is born, he or she will become a feature in his videos.
Craving some summer nostalgia?
Rugrats is returning with a new 26 episode series AND a live-action film!
Finally, we can binge watch one of our favourite childhood shows again!
What crazy adventures will these babies have next?
Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie, and Angelica will be returning in this revived film and series, as well as a whole new world of characters.
Can you believe it has been almost 30 years since the series original air date? The hit cartoon won four Daytime Emmy Awards and six Kids’ Choice Awards.
But don’t worry, the show will still follow the same mischievous adventures we know and love, as the original creators will be returning to work as producers on the set as well.
Paramount Players have announced that the official Rugrats film release date is November 13, 2020.
And we cannot wait to take a trip into the past with the new movie.

“Now feels like the ideal time to reintroduce this iconic cast of characters to a whole new generation of young fans," commented the president of Paramount Players, Brian Robbins.
Nickelodeon has focused on reviving loads of other classic series as well, including the 2017 Hey Arnold series.
It has also been announced that there will be upcoming specials of Invader Zim and Blue’s Clues.
So get out the sweets and buttered popcorn; the next few years are going to be epic!
90s kids, rejoice!
It's time to add little nostalgia to your beauty routine with the launch of this Nickelodeon inspired eyeshadow palette.
Designed to look like an old-skool VHS tape, the packaging is decorated with all your favourite characters – Angelica Pickles, Ren and Stimpy, Cat-Dog, the whole gang.
The palette contains a mixture of both matte and sparkling shades ranging from subtle nudes to vibrant blues.
Each shade has been named using a classic Nick quote, such as the green ‘Rawr’, inspired by Rugrats’ Reptar and the blue ‘Football Head', inspired by Hey Arnold!.
Oh, and of course, it wouldn't be a Nickelodeon palette if it didn't feature the channel's signature outrageous orange shade.
Here are the swatches of the NOW Sold Out @nickelodeon themed Eyeshadow Palette from @hottopic that went viral yesterday by @crayoff . Who managed to snag this palette?

The retro palette is currently on offer for $13.52 (€10.84), down from $16.90 (€13.55), but according to online reports, the product, which is currently being sold at Hot Topic stores in the US, is sold out everywhere.
Woe is us.
However, if you want to be the first to know when its back in stock, you can keep an eye out here.
'Move it, football head!'
If these words don't bring you straight back your youth, you will probably not be excited by the fact that Nickelodeon is bringing back one of its most beloved animated characters.
Yep, your favourite kid with the football-shaped head is set to return not for TV but for two feature-length Hey Arnold! films.
It's official, Hey Arnold! is coming back in not one, but TWO TV Movies! Art by Craig Bartlett, the creator himself. pic.twitter.com/5kp5fYDDr8

And with the original creative genius behind the show, Craig Bartlett, and his team set to helm the franchise, we reckon it is going to be a pretty wonderful trip down memory lane.
The show follows the adventures of Arnold and his street-wise pal Gerald as well as Helga, the girl who tormented Arnold in order to cover up the fact that she secretly loved him.
And in case you haven't been convinced about how great this will actually be, here's a reminder of the groovy opening credits:
It's been nearly nine years since Drake and Josh was last on our TV screens, but during the week they had a surprise reunion.
The stars took part on the US show Grandfathered and played completely different characters, but that doesn't mean they didn't sneak in a few Drake and Josh references throughout the episode.
What's more, after the episode aired, more Drake and Josh alumni took to Twitter to see if they can have a reunion too.
Remember Josh's girlfriend Mindy? She totally wants to be involved. And Helen, Josh's boss? She's definitely up for it.
So, here we go ladies, another reunion might be on the cards, but for now, here's ALL the Drake and Josh references they squeezed into the Grandfathered ep:
If you were addicted to Nickelodeon in the 90s (who wasn't?) then feast your eyes on this hide-and-seek puzzle.
One Reddit user, Anti-Pugsly, shared a deadly picture that his girlfriend, artist Valeriya Volkova created.
In it is basically a reference to ALL of our fave 90s Nick shows, which Valeriva named Local Flavour.
Check out the picture and see how many references you can find:
It's a bit hard, and some people are able to count up to 31 Nick-related things. We're seeing a few details from The Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, and Are You Afraid of the Dark.
Still stuck? Then compare your findings to this Reddit user, who basically found everything:
Nickelodeon fans seem to just be getting more and more good news today. Earlier it was announced that the old school cartoon was making a comeback in an animated film.
Variety reported that the series was due for a revamp and Nickelodeon are eager for an entirely new generation of cartoon lovers to become acquainted with the beloved series.
Meanwhile, we discovered the actor who voiced the original Arnold has surfaced on social media. We would very much like to become acquainted with him, to be honest.
Lane Toran (AKA Lane Toran Caudell), is a 33-year old actor and musician based in Los Angeles.
While many know him as the voice of Arnold (or at least you do now) he was also a voice actor for Recess, As Told By Ginger and appeared on Malcom in the Middle.
That is not all though, he is apparently said to have co-written a song with Haylie Duff which appeared on her sister Hilary’s album Metamorphosis. The song was called Sweet Sixteen.
Lane also produced a track on The Osbourne Family Album (from The Osbourne's TV series) called Mirror Image.
The musician is a dog lover too, and posted multiple videos on Instagram of puppies being adorable puppies with the hashtag #stopYulin2015.
Unfortunately, Lane is also very much in love with his girlfriend Jaclyn Betham. She is an actor and dancer who has performed around the world with multiple ballet companies.
When she was just 18, Jaclyn walked in to a “high profile modelling agency” and requested a meeting. She was signed that day, according to IMDB.
It's official! One of our favourite old school Nickelodeon cartoons is on its way back to us.
According to Variety, Nickelodeon is planning to develop a TV movie about the beloved football-headed kid and his crew of misfit friends.
The movie is going to tie up some loose ends that fans were left with when the show ended in 2004 (feeling old now?), including what happened to Arnold's parents.
The executives behind the decision said that they weren't necessarily hoping that nostalgic millennials will watch it, although most of us will probably tune in to see what it's like with Helga, Gerald and the rest of the gang.
"You have to remember people who are going to watch really don't have a recollection of Hey Arnold!," Nickelodeon exec Russell Hicks told Variety.
"You have to make it relevant to them but also nod to the audience that is going to be interested."
There's no release date yet for the Hey Arnold! movie, but while you wait you can watch The Splat, Nick's new block of throwback programmes. Hurrah, we feel young again!
The minute you arrived home from school, homework would have to wait because it was time for you to settle yourself in front of the TV to watch all that Nickelodeon had to offer.
Hey! Arnold, The Rugrats and Catdog were among the favourite shows that filled our blissfully-free afternoons.
Well, if you were a fan of these shows, we have BIG news.
A new Nickelodeon campaign has been flooding social media recently, and it’s hinting towards a new channel dedicated only to 90’s Nick TV shows.
Yes, we’re jumping for joy too.
The Splat is the rumoured name of the new channel as it has been popping up all over Instagram and Twitter lately.
A video was posted on YouTube last week, featuring a montage of all the Nick cartoons, promising The Splat is will be here soon.
This was then accompanied by a website, as well as the array of social media accounts.
While nothing has been confirmed, it’s enough to send the Internet and Nick fans into a complete frenzie.
