This thread caught my eye, and I had to pop-in here. I watched SNL when Chevy Chase, Jane Curtain, Eddie Murphy, and that crew were on.

One of my all-time favorite sketches was Murphy's routine on Buckwheat's death, and the subsequent spoof of the media's "breaking news." I seem to recall falling off the couch, I was laughing so hard. That, and his takes on Mr. Rogers's Neighborhood. Can you spell 'ghetto?,' and climbing out of the window to escape the police knocking on his door.

I also loved Mr. Bill, and Gumby dammit, especially since I recalled Gumby and Pokey from my childhood.

There was this skit with Laraine Newman where she was playing a psychiatrist or something and she was like 5 or six years old. She had written a couple of books; something like "I'm 5 Your 5" and "Now We're ALL Six..." This was a time when PC meants Commador 64 or something like that.

Then there was this skit with Bill Murray and Gilda Radner where he's got his pants pulled up to his nipples?? and she is this dork Han-Han-Huey with the hair and these coke-bottle glasses. Anyway, he's over at her place and I think her mom is Jane Curtain and he's this disgusting perv and she digs it. Anyway, I'm like in college and spending the weekend with the folks one night and trying to watch this with um-my parents.My mom's like, "I'm off to bed." Minutes latter my dad's like, "I think I'm gonna hit it too..." Then I'm like, "OK GDIT! We'll watch something else...

Gawd those skits were funny...

Oh, and a flash-forward to #33, that whole Peyton Manning episode was hilarious. He busts a move with his coach during some rediculous BB halftime skit... Some of Cut-That-Meat's best stuff... That episode made me an instant fan. Who nails an 11 year old kid in the back of the head with a spiral?

Lisa loobner... and Todd - were the Gilda and Murray characters.
I liked the "swinging czech brothers" Steve martin and Dan Ackroyd.

I also liked many of the skits with Christopher Walken in them - man he is so funny.

Must admit, Alec Baldwin did some great skits too!

I agree that the old 70's were the best acted, written, and done. Too many to list but suffice it to say there will never be TV like that again!

The Star Trek skit in the early days (with the little model of a Chrysler filled with NBC executives following the Enterprise to deliver the news of cancellation) is really a classic.

How could I forget Church Chat with Pat Robertson and Jimmy Swaggart - Church Lady: "Was little Jimmy out of his pulpit at the no-tell motel?"

That's what I was gonna say! Ya hit the nail on the head! Oh my gosh! I bought two of his books years and years ago.... I still read them today and STILL laugh like it's the first time I read them.....

Insert from the book (my favorite) just for laughs:

If you ever fall off the Sears Tower,
just go limp, because maybe you'll look like
a dummy and
people will try to catch you because,
hey, free
dummy.

I really like the Alec Baldwin skit where he's on the radio selling his Schwedie Balls.

Another good one was with Janet Jackson when she was taking tour of a winery and they were explaining about soaking corks. Hilarious.
