Trivia:
Originally produced for The Disney Channel, "Good Morning Miss Bliss" was the brainchild of NBC President Brandon Tartikoff, who couldn't get the idea past his own network's executive board. When Disney canceled the show, Tartikoff persuaded the other NBC executives to give the show a chance, and it was reborn as "Saved By The Bell", the most successful teenage-geared show of all time.See more »

About Like Comparing Junior High to High School., 27 June 2005
Author: tfrizzell from United States

Hayley Mills as a junior high teacher in Indiana with a wide range of would-be interesting students (Mark Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond and Lark Voorhies most notably). Precursor to "Saved by the Bell" just never did get it right. Mills seems totally tired and out of place with the likable youngsters and principal Dennis Haskins was not a large enough focus here. Constant attempts by NBC to get the show going on the network failed and The Disney Channel (never a very good cable show producer) picked up the rights. Only 13 episodes were ever completed over a three-year period and none are really worth mentioning. As ho-hum as "Saved by the Bell" is, it looks like American television magic compared to "Good Morning, Miss Bliss". Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
