Happy Friday! Sylvester and Tweety are up for an award, Mark-Paul Gosselaar recalls Saved by the Bell, The Early Show is getting a facelift, America’s Most Wanted returns, and some bits of TV history.
The new Warner Bros. cartoon that we mentioned yesterday, “I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat,” has made the shortlist for the Oscars’ Best Animated Short Film category. It’ll be competing against nine other animated short films, as well as eligible winners from the Student Academy Awards.
Saved by the Bell
Actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar recently told the ladies on The Talk why he and his fellow castmates stayed humble while shooting the NBC kids sitcom. He said, “When we were filming, we didn’t have Twitter, we didn’t have the paparazzi or the Internet. We had no idea that we were successful. So, we were just doing this little show that got cancelled every single year we did the show. We did six seasons but it was like, ‘Oh, they’re bringing you back because they have nothing on the schedule.’ And we’d do our little show and have fun but that was what kept us so grounded. We were just these six kids. We didn’t have big heads because we didn’t think we were doing anything that people were watching.”
