Dennis Haskins Donates 'Saved By The Bell' Memorabilia to UTC


  Chattanooga native Dennis Haskins may be American's best-loved principal. Or, more specifically, Haskins's portrayal of Mr. Belding may be. Haskins played the character for more than a decade on Saved By The Bell and its spin-offs. He's also a distinguished alumnus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and in this interview, he talks about donating his scripts and other memorabilia from the show to the UTC library, which currently houses an exhibit about him. 

In this interview, he talks about his time at UTC, his time on Saved By The Bell (including the origin of his famous catchphrase "Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?"), his musical collaboration with Shooter Jennings, and more.
