What's really depressing is that in the Netflix SNL archive, they completely cut the whole Buckwheat storyline, with the exception of the skit where they keep replaying the assassination video in slower and slower speeds. There's no follow-up, no previous Buckwheat skits, no Alfalfa skits... It's sad.

I've been watching the whole series from the beginning. I'm currently in the mid 1980s on Phil Hartman's first season. I'm very depressed that they drop the musical guests out of all of the 1980s episodes. They had them in the 1970s episodes, but the 80s? No musical guests anywhere.

My favorite is a sketch with Alec Baldwin called "The Mimic" that has disappeared.

It's not online, it's not on The Best of Alec Baldwin DVDs.

You can find that it DID exist, but zero video evidence.

And I dare any and ALL of you to find it for me.

(A rich woman's husband was kidnapped and Alec plays a man who can mimic any voice so she hires him to speak to the kidnappers, or something to that effect.  But all of his voices sound the same.  And terrible.  And Paul McCartney plays the butler).

Which one is that?


It's from the 1977 season.  It's a black and white film in which Belushi plays himself, years in the future, as an old man, visiting the graves of, and reminiscing about all of the early cast members because he is the last original member who is still alive.

It's really the saddest thing that SNL has ever aired, although of course we didn't know that at the time.

On the Sarah Michelle Gellar episode in 1998, she was the host of Tiger Beat. Norm MacDonald appeared as a man who had drawn pictures of himself and Jonathon Taylor Thomas as husband and wife, when his fake mustache fell off. He ad-libbed, "This is not a real mustache. I bought this from a fellow on the street. He seemed like a nice enough fellow."

Anyway, that's my favorite sketch. Then he left the show two weeks later because apparently he was not allowed to be mean to O.J. Simpson.

It's not online, it's not on The Best of Alec Baldwin DVDs.

You can find that it DID exist, but zero video evidence.

And I dare any and ALL of you to find it for me.

(A rich woman's husband was kidnapped and Alec plays a man who can mimic any voice so she hires him to speak to the kidnappers, or something to that effect.  But all of his voices sound the same.  And terrible.  And Paul McCartney plays the butler).

The reruns all are compromised because of rights on the musical guests. Something about that has had them pull tons and tons of shows. It's a crime, they could make a fortune just selling a box set of all the performances. To my knowledge in 35 years they har only released a single cd of performances.

I think it comes down to nbc not owning them. Each performance is owned by the artists record company... And we all know how well the record industry takes to innovation and sharing great art.
 
2013-09-27 11:27:04 PM
my brother took an improv writing class at Second City (slightly after Chirs Farley died). One day they had as guest instructors some ex Second City guys who worked on SNL.

Basically, any time they would try to write some character-based comedy bit that Farley wanted to be a part of, he would come in, take over the skit, remove any of the character aspects, because "yelling and screaming is funny."

COMEDY INSIGHT!!

Parents called me tonight to ask who Belushi's partner was in the "Blues Brothers", as they were watching the "Best of John Belushi" on Netflix. Their favorite was "Don't look back in Anger". Funny, as he recounts the deaths (spoiler alert) of all the SNL cast, he actually died first. Favorite sketch ever.
2. Shatner and "Get a Life"
3. Bruno Mars costume character in Times Square (very poignant)
4. "Buckwheat has been Shot": Context is that they show the shooting over and over and over and over again, which was exactly what happened to the MSM when Reagan was shot in D.C. They didn't even come close to how many time the Reagan shot merited.
5. Moet Chandon. Just genius from porn stars!
 
2013-09-27 11:39:58 PM
Christine Baranski's monologue

to 'splain - I generally find her super annoying and harpy, but maybe she just plays that character too well (and too often).  Anyhow, she was hosting SNL  I only remember the monologue.  She was doing a straight monologue about her Polish heritage.  As she spoke, they panned around the studio to show all these Pollock jokes being executed.  Like, a guy on a ladder holding a light bulb and five guys below holding up the ladder and walking in circles.  It was terribly funny, especially since everyone played it straight.

This was the height of pollack jokes, in the 80s.  For some reason, we changed the punchline to blonde, but the content was the same.  I would love to find that clip.  going to poke around youtube and google videos to see if I can find it.

Like much of the humor they pushed, I can't imagine you could do that skit today.  Plus, no one would get it.  I haven't heard a 'pollock' joke for 20 years.

I have seen every show ever.  Never miss it.  I am also absolutely not one of those people who complains 'it was funnier 20 years ago'.  Every cast brings something big to the table.   Well, most.  There were some horrible cast members over the years, but that is a separate discussion.

lastly, Justin Timberlake kills every time.  That kid is just stupid talented

From the '80's: "Larry's Corner"

Host Larry with his three high school friends: the guy who makes everyone laugh with his armpit farts, the guy who would drink anything, and the guy who would squirt milk out of his nose when he laughed.

Then the armpit guy does his armpit sounds, the milk guy laughs and squirts milk out of his nose, and the guy who would drink anything holds up a glass to the milk guy's nose.

I am so pleased with this discussion.  it's all happy people with great memories, not the usual dismissive fark snark of hipsters that piss on everything.  Reading all these comments brings back so many memories.

another great skit, because it was SO dumb and pointless, was the Falconer.  Laser Cats is like that, too.  Bad on purpose

As others have pointed out, the last few seasons have been consistently very good. Not as many great episodes, but many, many more ones with only a small number of one-joke skits (ie Samurai [butcher, baker, packing clerk], Billy Goat Tavern, Making Copies, etc).

/The Kissing Family skit can go die horribly.

The Snakes on a Plane skit, because it was so damn bizarre.  Does anyone remember the hand model skit with Phil Hartman.

swahnhennessy: "I'll be in my room, masturbating."


OMFG yes.  There is an awful lot of great stuff covered in this thread, but this right here was probably the single most memorable moment of SNL I can recall... Joe Montana dropping that line literally left me doubled over in pain from laughing so hard because it was so completely out of left field.

And I know not everyone likes it but "Sprockets" is a personal favorite.

All of the above, but special mention of "The Amazing Collosal President", which benefitted from a week off due to Bob & Ray.

It kept upping the ante, until we got TV's first interracial same-sex kiss.

Brain Injury Guy and Dog

The Italian Restaurant with Kirstie Allen...the single greatest line in SNL and it was a throw-away...The husband says to the wife as he storms out of the Italian restaurant because they were so sexually forward with his wife--"There's a Greek place down the street. Let's go there."

Hanukkah Harry - "On Hymie...On Hershel...On Schlomoooo"

Not a skit, but on the same show's WU, Victoria Jackson did a little bump and grind number about Santa almost right in Miller's lap - and it looked like she was JUST a touch tipsy. Afterwards, all Miller could say was, "I think I have a candy cane here!"

A Gumby Christmas, Dammit!  with Piscopo as Sinatra, and Julia L-D and Kroeger as Donny and Marie, who end up making out while singing a love song. Classic.

So many awesome moments:

"You know, this is the part of the special when I was going to decorate the Christmas tree with my very good friend, Sammy Davis, Jr."

[ walks over to the huge Christmas tree ]

"But, unfortunately, Sammy could not be here tonight.. but he did send us this lovely ornament to decorate the tree with.."

[ pulls out an eyeball attached to a hook, and hangs it to the tree as the audience groans ]

"Shut up! Here's looking at you, Sammy."

"And to everyone out there - a merry Christmas! And to my producer, my director, my manager, and my lawyer - Happy Hanukkah, boys! Good night!"

There was a skit where Hartman was doing Charlton Heston reading the Madonna "Sex" book, for books on tape, and it had Danny Devito acting as, I think, Bob Guccione, and he was giving an oral description of the pictures.

It was one of the best skits I've ever seen.  One of the best lines was Hartman (reading as Heston) and he says, "Sometimes, I like to look at my vagina...."  "Hey, do we have to say that word?  Couldn't we use something else?  What was it old Ernie Borgnine used to call it....a fur burger?"

That skit had me rolling...I wish I could find it on the net.

/RIP Phil Hartman

It's too location specific.  But if you've eaten in Greek delis in NYC, then yes, it is funny.

The Baron: Christine Baranski's monologue

to 'splain - I generally find her super annoying and harpy, but maybe she just plays that character too well (and too often).  Anyhow, she was hosting SNL  I only remember the monologue.  She was doing a straight monologue about her Polish heritage.  As she spoke, they panned around the studio to show all these Pollock jokes being executed.  Like, a guy on a ladder holding a light bulb and five guys below holding up the ladder and walking in circles.  It was terribly funny, especially since everyone played it straight.

This was the height of pollack jokes, in the 80s.  For some reason, we changed the punchline to blonde, but the content was the same.  I would love to find that clip.  going to poke around youtube and google videos to see if I can find it.

Like much of the humor they pushed, I can't imagine you could do that skit today.  Plus, no one would get it.  I haven't heard a 'pollock' joke for 20 years.

I have seen every show ever.  Never miss it.  I am also absolutely not one of those people who complains 'it was funnier 20 years ago'.  Every cast brings something big to the table.   Well, most.  There were some horrible cast members over the years, but that is a separate discussion.

lastly, Justin Timberlake kills every time.  That kid is just stupid talented


It was in <b>1996</b>.

FloydA: hervatski: FloydA:
Special mention for "Don't Look Back In Anger," which still gets me choked up.

Which one is that?

It's from the 1977 season.  It's a black and white film in which Belushi plays himself, years in the future, as an old man, visiting the graves of, and reminiscing about all of the early cast members because he is the last original member who is still alive.

It's really the saddest thing that SNL has ever aired, although of course we didn't know that at the time.




Found it.

Yeah, the room I'm in always gets a bit dusty when I watch it.

Danny DeVito and Mike Meyers in a tub. Myers was playing some English child. They were talking about Christmas and I remember DeVito's line "My daddy says sometimes even Santa gotta get whacked"
