Internet, you’ve done it again. What you have just seen is an episode of Saved By The Bell: The New Class with special guest star Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. At the time Harbaugh was quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, and in the Season 4 episode titled Little Hero, he not only plays himself, but he also ends up being Screech’s cousin for some strange and completely unfunny reason. The interaction between Dustin Diamond (aka Screech Powers) and Harbaugh is almost too painfully corny to watch.
There are life lessons aplenty, some terribly poor acting by everyone involved, and not a Zach Morris, A.C. Slater, or Kelly Kapowski to be found anywhere, which is probably why Saved By The Bell: The New Class was a mountain of incredible suckitude, and why this Harbaugh cameo is only seeing the light of day now. Yeah, the Niners coach should expect to take some good-natured ribbing from his team once they get their grubby little paws on this gem, not only for his wooden, almost porn-like performance, but also for his tremendously 90s hairdo.
