Some youngsters might not be as familiar with Mario Lopez's role on Saved by the Bell as they are his on-going stint as an Extra TV host, but one person who most definitely is? Oh, just Mario Lopez's son Dominic, who wore a white Slater tee, nodding to daddy's notorious past. 

Nostalgia for the '90s continues to burn at a fever pitch and that includes Saved by the Bell nostalgia

Dominic is almost 2 and already we can tell that Lopez has a heartbreaker on his hands! Wait until he starts dating, Mario. He'll be fending the ladies off with a stick, especially if he wears Slater tees after puberty.

The little cutie was certainly dad's mini me with his white Slater tank bearing the phrase "Haters Gonna Hate." Can I just say that I love that it's a crisp white tank and how Dominic wore it with black jeans and black and white Converse? His parents have already made him a style star at such a young age.

It really is the cutest self-reference ever, since I am willing to wager that Dominic didn't dress himself nor did he purchase this shirt on his own, either! Still, it was a fun way for Lopez to celebrate his past, his present, and his future.

Lopez hasn't aged a bit. At least Slater's mullet is looooong gone.

You know what would be even cuter? If little Dominic donned a Zack Morris tee, featuring Mark Paul Gosselaar's face. He could be "Preppy," both in style and in an homage to the show.

I found this one on Etsy. It's custom, so the artist could make smaller sizes for tots like Dominic or whoever wants to wear one. Saved by the Bell couture could be a cottage industry. I think I am onto something. ($12.78, etsy.com)

There is a popular t-shirt with a sexy shot of Kelly Kapowski, played by Tiffani Thiessen when she was known as Tiffani Amber Thiessen. 

They sell these Kelly graphic tees at Urban Outfitters if you want to get your '90s on for a beloved TV show. I am sure plenty of dudes would want to wear this tee. Hell, I'd hack it up and cut off the collar to wear it myself. ($24, urbanoutfitters.com)

If you preferred Jessie Spano, well there are Jessie tees out there, too. Oh, how I loved Elizabeth Berkley, even after Showgirls. ($24, bustedtees.com)

I'd avoid any Screech shirts, though! Just sayin'.
