Andy Kaufman's last appearance on SNL.
Jane Wagner, Lily's professional and life partner, is credited as a writer for this episode.
Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas appear as their SCTV characters Bob & Doug McKenzie during the midnight station break to promote next week's show. This was cut from the NBC network reruns but left intact when Classic showed the live version of this show.
The musical guest in this episode is Pervis Hawkins, an alter ego of Tomlin's.
Like Eddie Murphy a month before, the host refers to tonight's episode as "The Lily Tomlin Show."
