26 Lisa Turtle Moments From "Saved By The Bell" That Never Get Old

Lisa Turtle is goals!

If we're talking classic television of the late '80s and '90s, Saved by the Bell is an automatic topic of conversation.

Saved by the Bell was a fan-favorite series with awesome lead characters — Zack Morris, Jessie Spano, Samuel "Screech" Powers, Kelly Kapowski, Lisa Turtle, and A.C. Slater — were kids we all wanted to go to school with.

Lisa, played by Lark Voorhies, was one of the most popular kids at Bayside High.

She was fashion-forward, funny, a social butterfly, and a loyal friend.

Lark also reprised the role in recent years for the SBTB reboot, and Lisa is just as cool (and stylish) as ever.
