0807-mark-launch-6Update: Dustin Diamond's manager tells toofab that the actor was not invited to take part in the reunion. We're told Dustin was fine with the decision, because he had a standup comedy show in Iowa last night. Diamond, who lives in Wisconsin now, still hasn't watched the video.

Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, AC Slater, Jessie Spano and Mr. Belding reunited last night for an epic "Tonight Show" sketch with Jimmy Fallon.

But while we loved seeing the Bayside gang together again, Lisa Turtle and Screech Powers were noticeably absent.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, Mario Lopez and Dennis Haskins all suited up in their best '90s outfits for the nostalgia-inducing clip, which is sure to be one of Fallon's most popular viral videos of all time.

We're told Fallon's been trying to make the reunion happen for years, but it just didn't work out. With Jimmy in L.A. all week, they pitched another script to the cast and, this time, they went for it. Some of the original "SBtB" stagehands even helped build the set!

And while we're guessing Dustin Diamond's recent legal troubles had something to do with him being MIA, what about Lark Voorhies?

Well, we can confirm that she really wanted to appear in the video, but simply couldn't make it.

"Lark would have loved to be part of the Jimmy Fallon skit, as she is a big fan of the show," a rep for Voorhies tells toofab. "However due to an intense work schedule, she was not available." 

Though she doesn't do too many public appearances these days, toofab caught up with Lark back in September -- where she let us know what she thought of Lifetime's "unauthorized" biopic about the show. Most of the original cast members refused to watch it, so her answer was pretty surprising.
