Flashback: 31 Things That Defined the Summer of 1989

31 Things That Defined the Summer of 1989

Originally posted 07/11/2014 04:55PM

Despite what Public Enemy may have said, 1989 wasn't just "another summer". Though history is rarely that neat, the final summer of the '80s saw the slow fade of many of the decade's icons, as well as the launch of some of the '90s' most enduring pop-culture institutions.

In terms of cultural legacy, the summer of '89 might not be able to compete with its predecessor of two decades prior – Woodstock and Bryan Adams will do that – but 25 years later, we're still feeling its impact.

Whether you remember it or not, relive the summer of acid wash, hair metal and Do the Right Thing below.

Elizabeth Berkley Is Still Really Close to Her Saved by the Bell Costars

As Zack Attack sang on Saved by the Bell, Elizabeth Berkley and her former costars are indeed "friends forever."

"It's amazing," Berkley, 41, told PEOPLE backstage Monday at Dancing with the Stars. "I don't know if you have people from high school who you're still close with, [but] even if we don't see each other for a long time, it's a connection that we'll have forever."

"Luckily we do check in, and we always have each other's backs," she adds. "It's a really special thing."

Dustin Diamond: She's Not the Lark Voorhies I Knew

Originally posted 10/04/2012 04:50PM

In 2003, Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond reunited after many years to record commentary for a Saved by the Bell box set. But it wasn't the Screech-and-Lisa reunion he expected.

"I was always used to playing off of her and looking into her eyes," Diamond says of his former costar. "When I saw her at the commentary, it wasn't the Lark I knew."

Voorhies stared into space, Diamond says, much like she did during a series of interviews with PEOPLE. Voorhies says she is spiritual, but her mother Tricia revealed her daughter was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

She wasn't always like this. Voorhies, who famously played the bubbly Lisa Turtle on the '90s Saturday morning sitcom, was just as engaging offscreen, recalls Mario Lopez.

Lark Voorhies Battling Bipolar Disorder, Her Mom Tells PEOPLE

While most of the cast from Saved by the Bell have remained in the spotlight, Lark Voorhies has largely been out of sight.

The former teen star, known to a generation of fans as the fashionable Lisa Turtle, denies anything is wrong, but after a bizarre Yahoo! video went viral earlier this year, some questioned whether drugs played a role. Voorhies adamantly denied it. Instead, her mother says, she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

In a series of interviews with PEOPLE, it was clear something wasn't right. Voorhies, 38, would frequently stop mid-sentence and stare off, often mumbling to herself or to others who weren't there.  

"There are things that have traumatized her," says Tricia, 64, who shares a home with her daughter in Pasadena, Calif. "I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life."

Lark Voorhies, who played popular Bayside High School student Lisa Turtle on Saved by the Bell, seemed to slip into her shell once the show went off the air in 1993.

The actress, 38, popped up this week on Michael Yo's The Yo Show on Yahoo!'s OMG! blog – and the Internet was buzzing over how much she's changed. (See the side-by-side photos above).
