Trivia

The original pilot for Good Morning, Miss Bliss aired on July 11, 1987, on NBC (in The Facts of Life's time slot). It featured up-and-comers Brian Austin Green (who later got his big break on Beverly Hills, 90210) as Adam Montcrief, Jaleel White (who later got his big break on Family Matters) as Bobby Wilson, and Jonathan Brandis (who later got his big break on seaQuest DSV) as Michael Thompson. Brian Austin Green was, in essence, the "lead" student in the pilot, a particularly serious student, who wore business suits.

Several other characters from the series existed in the pilot but were played by different actors; Mr. Gerald Belding was played by Oliver Clark, and Miss Tina Paladrino was played by Maria O'Brien. Other characters include Gabriel Damon as Bradley; Samantha Mills as Wendy; Julie Ronnie as Lonnie Maple; Matt Shakman as Georgie Winslow; Charles Siebert as Charlie Davis; Britton Elliott as Janet Hillhurst; Josh Goddard as Steven; and Andrea Messersmith as Laurie.

Alternate Versions

Several episodes of Good Morning, Miss Bliss were added to the "Saved By The Bell" (1989) syndication package. They feature a new introduction and closing by Zack Morris (who is reflecting on his years in Jr. High School) and some scenes are shortened or edited out to account for the time used by the new introductions as well as longer commercial breaks.

Gotta laugh
13 November 2004 | by kjs1972See all my reviews

It's funny that it says if you like Good Morning Miss Bliss, you'll like "Alf". Has anyone on "Miss Bliss" been caught smoking crack on hidden camera lately like the father on "Alf"? LOL. Sorry to say I never got turned on to "Alf". Although Alf is better looking than anyone else on that show. Anyway, "Miss Bliss" could have been worse. Although I never saw the point to the show, I saw less of a point that Joan Ryan (Tina Paladrino) was on that show. What a goof. Hayley Mills should have thought twice. Dennis Haskins is a talented actor and also should have thought twice. I suppose he had to get his start somewhere. It was weird seeing the exact same school go from Indiana to California. "Saved By The Bell" was much more entertaining. It was even more entertaining to see that Slater never outgrew the mullet the entire time.
