Wake Up & Smile!

/and that one with Mike Myers that was a sort of parody of a Japanese show, probably too insensitive for modern times

FloydA: Schweddy Balls

That's a good one. But as far as Baldwin sketches go I'm partial to The Diner skit with Jan Hooks. Can't find a link to the video anywhere so here's the transcript.

The Diner

nathanjr: The Bush/Gore debates were also some of my favorites.

/Lock Box

The Bush/Mondale one is good, too.

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.

The Baron: 'Amazing time savers' with mile Myers and heather locklear.

It's a spoof on infomercials, with a wickedly racist host unintentionally bashing all these races.
"Just look how user friendly it is. Even a Native American could work it"

I forgot about that one when I posted earlier. I laughed until I cried.

"Usually this 'easy directions' stuff is a the Holocaust!" *RING*

And it just dawned on me that the look Mike Myers had on his face was the same look he had when Kanye West said "George Bush does not like black people!"

Found it!  - the Christine Baranski monologue I was talking about.  It wasn't as funny as I remember it 20 years ago.  It's hulu plus, so you'll need a log in to watch it.  Sorry, but youtube and google don't have it.

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

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."

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.

"With a name like Fluckers, it's -got- to be good!"

"New Shimmer. It's a dessert topping!" "It's a floor wax!"

"HONKY honky!"

As a young teenager, that first season was comedy gold. Gold, I tells ya! Reruns of it were nigh nonexistent and we didn't have a video recorder/player yet. So I bought the SNL record the minute I saw it at Sears and memorized every word of it. Ah, to be that young and impressionable again.
So yeah, my favorites are biased by age. Though I loved Tina Fey as Palin. THAT was awesome.

The list STARTS and ENDS with Phil Hartman, and has no one else but Phil Hartman.

It might include Tina Fey if I'm in a giving mood. See Taxandspend's post above. Those Palin impersonations were sublime.

There was one shortly after 9/11 when everyone was getting to wear like American flag apparal to work or whatever. So the skit was Will Ferrell in a pair of American flag speedos and nothing else in a meeting and I thought it killed.
