- "Hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?"
- —Principal Belding
Played by Dennis Haskins, Mr. (Richard) Belding is the principal of Bayside High School and the show's resident authority figure.
He is married to Rebecca "Becky" Belding (née Flugelman).
He's known for his catch phrase "Hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?" as well as his high-pitched laugh. Belding has frequent run-ins with Zack and his friends as either a foe to be outwitted or a friend to turn to for help. Despite being a responsible authority figure, Mr. Belding is unusual in that he genuinely seems to care about what his students, particularly Zack, think of him.
