FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (8)

    • Casey Kasem (played by Dana Carvey) mentions an Eddie Fontaine in a "whatever happened to" story on Weekend Update. Over the goodnights of the 01/24/87 broadcast, Don Pardo read a disclaimer that the Eddie Fontaine in the story was a fictitious entity.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of the Sweeney Sisters (in the "Instant Coffee" sketch).

    • The "Chalk Factory" sketch is replaced in reruns with the short film "Street Corner Saxophonist."

    • Sketches not shown in the 60 minute version:

      "Weekend Update with Dennis Miller", "Contract", "Chalk Factory" and "Johnny O'Connor"

    • A portion of Sam Kinison's stand-up performance in which he calls for the legalization of marijuana is muted in reruns. There is also an edit toward the end of the routine, trimming the segment after Kinison mentions that Jesus hasn't spoken to anyone in 2000 years; the unedited segment had him elaborating on what the last thing he said was by "hammering" with his microphone and screaming.

    • There is a common misconception that Run-DMC was SNL's first hip-hop musical guest, when in fact The Funky Four Plus One More was on SNL with host Deborah Harry in Year 6.

    • Malcolm-Jamal Warner was only in two sketches.

    • Malcolm-Jamal Warner was 16 years old when he hosted.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Phil Hartman as "BING CROSBY": "I think you need to go to the Library"
      According to published reports, Bing would tell his kids that they needed to go to the Library, which meant that he was going to give them a beating. What was funny about this was that Malcolm-Jamal Warner was mistakenly placed on "The Cros(b)y Show" and had to suffer the same fate as Bing's kids did.

      P.S. - JOHN LOVITZ shows up as DAVID CROSBY (no relation)from CROSBY, STILLS & NASH, just so they can get in a has-been JUNKIE joke.
