I was in a little pizza joint in Spokane Wa. and the guy behind the counter turned out to be Mr. Beldings brother.. I found out after asking him why there were SEVERAL signed pics of the saved by the bell principal on the wall.. Thought he might be a creepy fan or something..

Seymour Kaufman gets my vote. And remember the kid with the big red afro? Google "David Jolliffe". Crazy that he played a HS student for 3-4 years.

The guy in the Breakfast Club was a teacher, not the Princpal. Do you really think a Principal would waste a Saturday on a bunch of deliquents?

I am dumbfounded that no one here thinks Seymour Skinner is the best "fake" principal of all times. He clearly destroys Mr. Belding and Mr. Feeeeeeeeny by a mile. BTW, Boy Meets World should bring back re-runs because that show was hilarious.

I know Mr. Feeny was a teacher but he was the best! He was a principal for a short time but he was awesome

your writers need research lessons. Both the main actors in Ferris and Breakfast Club were NOT principals! They were Dean of Students and a teacher, respectively. sheesh!
