Some classics:
Land Shark
Killer Christmas Trees
Killer Bees
And the one with the giant lobsters.

I always like Emily Latella (Gilda Radner). She always called Chevy Chase "Chedder Cheese".  Some of the ones that I can remember is "Sax and Violins" on t.v., and "Busting school children".  "Oh, that's different. Never mind."

Then there is Point/Counter Point- "Jane, you ingorant slut."

But that one that truly got me was when Jane Curtain ripped open her shirt. (I think that had something to do with the fact that I used some "leafy substance" at the time.  ;) )

Eddie Murphy - Mr. Robinson's Neighbourhood

Chris Kattan and Will Ferrel - The Butabi Brothers

Jon Lovitz - The Liar

Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest - "I Hate When that Happens"

Billy Crystal - Fernando "You Look Mahvelous"

There was one from 1984 that always cracked me up where the idea was the Three Stooges teached a karate class.  Joe Piscopo played Curly Joe, and in one scene, his pants fell down, which wasn't part of the script.  That just killed me laughing  ;D

Ah, yes.  Martin Short as "Nathan Thurm," the sweaty, chain-smoking lawyer.

Also, there was one about 10 years ago with Nicolas Cage as an expectant father who was debating with his wife what to name their unborn son, and every time she'd suggest a name he'd find the lamest reason why other kids could make fun of that name. Then the doorbell rings, and Rob Schneider (as a deliveryman) is standing at the door. "Package for Mr. Asswipe," he says.

I've seen that--Paul Simon seemed kind of bitter.  ;D

Also, the infamous "Jingleheimer Junction" skit from a few years back was really funny.

http://planetwill.jt.org/media/video/98-09-26-jingle.jpg

Alec Baldwin was one of the funniest guest hosts. He had a recurring skit where he played a man named "Pete Sweaty," and he would go on some local public radio show hosted by two middle-aged ladies (I think Ana Gastmeyer was one of them) to talk about his receipes for his "Sweaty Balls" or his "Sweaty Weiner." Inevitably one of the ladies would sample his concoction and say, "Mmmm...your Sweaty Weiner feels so good in my mouth..."

He was also on the "Inside The Actor's Studio" spoof, and he did a dead-on impression of Charles Nelson Reilly (most well-known for his regular appearances on the 1970's game show "Match Game") that had me falling out of my chair.

There was a more recent one in which Paul Simon and his agent are auditioning dancers, and these two geeky guys are doing awful pantomime to all his hits.  It was hysterical, but I can't recall the actors who did it.  They did one like that with Sting also.




I might be insane, but I hate Martin Short. 

I'm a big fan, but I wouldn't begrudge anybody for hating Martin Short, especially after the Jimminy Glick Show.  I found Glick hysterical in a perverse way because it annoyed the cr@p out of me at the same time!

That reminds me of another Short character, the songwriter Irving C. Cohn.  He was a spoof on the old Tin Pan Ally guys.  Cohn boasted of writing over ten thousand songs...but they all sounded exactly alike:  "Gimme a C, a bouncy C!"
You might still be insane anyway.

Thanks, "Nathan Thurm," that was the name! 
Around the time Short was doing that sketch, I saw the president of Phillip Morris on TV, and he was talking just like Nathan Thurm.  I think it was "60 Minutes" or something.  The reporter was asking him how he felt about his product making all those people sicke, and the guy was like: "Sick?  What do you mean 'sick'?  I smoke, my wife smokes, and my children smoke.  We're not sick, nobody's sick!  You can't prove smoking makes anybody sick..."  All the while, the PM guy was taking copious drags of his cigarette!

it was from the second episode I believe...the skit was, he was suppose to come out on stage in the turkey constume and sing one of his songs (i forget which one..I think it was "The 59th street bridge song"), but he sings two lines and then gets really angry and walks off stage where he is confronted by Lorne Michaels.  He tells Lorne that it just doesnt feel right that he has to sing this song dressed as a turkey, but Lorne convinces him otherwise. 

I think that was it.

Anyone remember the Church Chat with the "Church Lady" (Dana Carvey) right after the Jimmy Swaggart scandal?
???
She had Jimmy Swaggart and Pat Robertson as guests (not the real JS and PR, if only!, that would have been awesome.)  That was my favorite Church Chat.
Swaggart (sobbing): I let down my people, I let down my family, I let down my church, and I let down my Lord...
Church Lady: Didn't we let something else down, too?
Swaggart: What?
Church Lady: Our pants!!!
Swaggart: (sobbing outburst)
Robertson (simpering): Now, Church Lady, I...I think you're being a little hard on Reverend Swaggart, now....
Church Lady: Now, Patrick, hush up, give Mr. Mouth a rest!  Now, Jimmy, let me help you atone...(takes his hand)...Now you're back in the that motel room with that tramp, litt-el Jimmy out of the pulpit, picture a pair of round bulbous buttocks gyrating, they're just gyrating away, back and forth...Are you picturing it?
Swaggart: Y-Yes.
Church Lady: (slapping Swaggart's hand) STOP!!!

That's an inexact rendition of the banter from memory.  Actually, I think it's when Robertson starts to say, "Now, Church Lady, I was more of a tele-journalist than a televangelist..." that Church Lady tells him to "Give Mr. Mouth a rest!"
Also Church Lady leads them in singing "If You're Happy and You Know It," in which Swaggart sings a sobbing solo, and Robertson sings a giggling solo.  Anyway....

Also, the sketch from the late '80s, "Chicken make lousy house pet," has been on my mind since the new panic over the Asian bird flu!

I remember that one.  He started singing "Still Crazy After All These Years"  After the first few lines of the song, he stopped and began to tell how humiliating it was standing there singing in a big turkey outfit and I think talking about how he didn't remember agreeing to this part of the act.

One of my favorites was the skit of MTV (Julia Louise-Dreyfuss as Nina Blackwood) interviewing the rock group, the Garage men, with Jim Belushi, Brad Hall and Gary Kroeger.  They didn't have an album yet but they did have a  video. "We don't want to sell records, we just want to have chicks.."

Another favorite was the skit were Joe Piscopo walks into the mensroom stall, sits down and begins to sing "Under the Boardwalk"  The other three guys in the stalls next to him begin to harmonize with him.

Who remembers the ad spoof "Handi-Off"? It was a product for dissolving extra fingers. You know how you've hated that unsiightly sixth finger all your life?
There's a part where a guy says to Victoria Jackson, "Pick you up at six?," and she raises her hand and proudly announces, "Let's make it five!"
And don't forget about new "Toe-Riffic"!

Yes, i've seen that one too. Kinda disgusting, but funny. :P



Another ad spoof I liked came at the time of the oat bran craze. A cereal called "Colon Blow." Poking fun of Total brand cereal's long-running catch, "It would take four bowls of Brand X to get the fibre in just one bowl of Total,"  the ad spoof went, "it would take 750 bowls of your brand to equal the fibre in just ONE bowl of Colon Blow"!  And it shows a guy on a mountain of cereal bowls eating a bowl of Colon Blow.
And don't forget about new "Super Colon Blow...."
;D

I think the announcer was asking the man eating the cereal how many bowls equaled the fiber content of one Colon Blow bowl; the man kept guessing small numbers until the announcer said, "Not even close...it'd take more than 30,000 bowls of your brand to equal the fiber in just ONE bowl of Colon Blow!" And the mountain of cereal bowls pushed up from underneath the man, who was sitting in the chair. "And to get that much fiber," the announcer continued, "you'd have to eat ten bowls a day, every day, for 8 1/2 years!"
Man (from on top of the mountain): "Wow! I'm convinced! I guess Colon Blow must be the highest-fiber cereal on the market?"
Announcer: "Not anymore. There's Super Colon Blow. And it'd take over two million bowls of your cereal to equal the fiber content in one bowl of Super Colon Blow."
(And the mountain of cereal bowls grew even higher.)

Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest in the famous "I hate when that happens" sketch used to get pretty disgusting with the descriptions.  "You wanna talk about some pain, the other day I took that, uh, miniature replica of the empire state building and shoved it up my nose, just to see how far it would go...," and so forth.  Too bad it was on network TV, otherwise they could have brought all manner of private parts into the banter!

I just thought of another one that I kinda enjoyed...but it wasn't a commercial spoof. Is anyone familiar with the Stewart Smalley character? I didn't see it, but I do know that the character, played by Al Franken, was part of a SNL skit entitled "Daily Affirmation With Stewart Smalley," from the early 90's. The routine was later spoofed on a real series of radio commercials for Glendale Federal Bank until they went out of business in 1998. His tag line, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!", was a signature line.

Hey Jeff, it's cool you're into those too! I was kinda surprised to run across this post (in a good way). :)

I remember there was about a half hour block of those airing on SNL back around 1993. My dad told me how funny they were - we each in fact, taped our own copies of it at the same time (I still have mine. The other is probably in our garage somewhere too).

They mostly featured the "classic original" cast of Chevy, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd etc, so I'm guessing they were from the late 70's (meaning they were already classic by that time) and probably not all shown at once.

Off the top of my head, I also liked the "Chia Head" one. ;D

Phil Hartman as the Caveman Lawyer always got at my funny bone, too. He had great comedic timing. So sad he's gone now!  :\'(

I thought about it, but remembered it was really more of a filler at the end of the show. I enjoyed the episodes, but couldn't bring myself to call it a skit. Heck, I even had a Mr. Bill tee back in the day.  ;D

I just remembered another: Neil Diamond Storytellers
I  remember this one.. I LOVED this one. I almost peed my pants watching it.. "  My heart hurts.. My ass.. My heart... My heart and ass hurt.."  Who played Neil Diamond though? I keep thinking it was Wil Ferrelll . It's not on his best of dvds though. Any ideas?

Thinking of Richard Pryor  :\'(  I just thought of another one. A parody of the Excorcist. Richard Pryor saying, "The bed must be on the floor! The bed must me on the floor! The bed is on my foot! The bed is on my foot!" And Lorraine Newman playing the Linda Blair character saying, "Your mother eats kitty litter."

There was another one with Andy Kaufman singing a song that went something like: "The cow goes moo, and the horse goes niegh, and the...." doing it as a sing-a-long with the audience.

I am familiar with a few of the ones you mentioned...although I haven't watched a great deal of them, I have read about them in my dad's SNL book that covers the first 19 seasons (1975-94) of the show. I mentioned earlier that I enjoyed some of the commercial spoofs.

My all time favorite has to be the one with Tom Hanks as the travelling bootblack who encounters a randy wench, and Jon Lovitz as Evelyn Quince, Victoria Jackson as the wench, and Jan Hooks as the rich lady getting aroused as the bootblack shines her boots.
OK, I declared this as my favorite SNL episode, but it's my 2nd fav, I just remembered my favorite from the early cast.  It was titled  Fred Garvin, Male Prostitute    Dan Ackroyd as a geeky goofy prostitute/ Garrett Morris was his pimp Slick, Margot Kidder was the guest .  funny  ;D  ;D
