It is a female character and she is usually in a group of people and she will compete with what everybody says and make up outrageous and exaggerated stories. I remember in one line she said she is friends with all the Muppets and was invited to all their weddings.

She is so hilarious. What is that characters name? Who is the actress? I know idiots that actually do that in real life that is why it is so funny.

Default Help me find a skit from SNL, please!

Sometime in the late 70's, maybe early 80's, there was a skit on SNL that spoofed the Wizard of OZ. I believe Gilda Radner played Dorothy, Jane Curtin must have been in it. It takes place in the Yukon. They sing: "follow the yellow line in the snow"...it takes them to a trailer in the woods, etc.
Does anyone remember this skit? I've had a hard time googling it or searching on you tube with any results.

Thanks in advance.

Saturday Night Live (season 5) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Saturday Night Live - Season 5, Episode 11: Elliott Gould/Gary Numan - TV.com

Both those links mention a parody of the Wizard of Oz in a skit called "The Incredible Man." from season 5. Maybe you can do some digging and find out more from that info, and from the line from the song that you have mentioned.

You won't find it on YouTube, the squash almost all of them as copyright violations almost immediately. Hulu has a lot. Hulu Plus has every episode, I believe, but not every sketch.

Try here for the transcript: Saturday Night Live Transcripts

Thanks for the info. Can't remember that it was called "The Incredible Man". Good stuff! All I can remember was rolling on the floor - it certainly tickled my funny bone.
