  • Trivia

    • In the Olympic bobsledding cold open, Eddie Murphy has his hand over his crotch. In repeats, shrubbery is awkwardly green-screened in to block the gesture.

    • In the "Baby Talk" sketch, Robin Williams accidentally called Eddie Murphy the wrong character name (he calls him "Cody" before correcting himself with "Otis! Otis!"). This is edited out in repeats.

    • In the "Rock & Roll ...and then some" sketch, Clarence the "lost Black Beatle" claims that he played a key role in the early days of the Fab Four, yet he mentions writing songs like "Nowhere Man" and "Let It Be," both of which came much later in the band's career.
