Mr. Belding, aka Dennis Haskins, will be making an appearance at Sully’s tomorrow night (Thursday, August 19) for the Saved by the Booze Party. We recommend you stop on by, drink a few, and be like Zack and give Mr. Belding the old heave-ho.
We’ll have more details and maybe some more hilarious Mr. Belding videos tomorrow promoting the event.
Anyways, Mr. Belding’s appearance made us wonder which sitcom principal is more unstoppable…Saved by the Bell’s Mr. Belding or Boy Meets World’s Mr. Feeny?
Mr. Belding – Played by Dennis Haskins, Mr. Belding is the principal of Bayside High School and the show’s resident authority figure. He says “Hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?” way too much and has a high-pitched laugh. Belding has frequent run-ins with Zack and his friends as either a foe to be outwitted or a friend to turn to for help. Despite being a responsible authority figure, Mr. Belding cares way too much about what Zack and the rest of the crew think of him. Belding remained the principal at Bayside (along with Screech as his assistant) until he left to become dean of students at Tennessee-Chattanooga in the final episode of Saved By The Bell: The New Class.
Mr. Feeny – Played by William Daniels, Mr. Feeny is the only human in history to follow a group of kids around no matter where they go to make sure they are mentored correctly. He is first Corey, Topanga and Shawn’s school teacher, then becomes their principal, was always their neighbor, and eventually toward the later years, becomes their college professor. The only day Mr. Feeny ever didn’t help out Cory and the crew is when he went fishing in Wyoming for 15 minutes. Still, there will never be another human in world history with the same ability to provide quotes, lessons, and devotion like Mr. Feeny.
Still can’t decide. Here are some hilarious videos.
