NBC had covered Super Bowl XIII back in January 1979, and a portion of the telecast was extracted on SNL six days later. The producers had to re-acquire footage from that game from NFL Films for the "Sports Beat" sketch, as the network rights had long since lapsed. Other video highlights used were Bill Mazeroski's 1960 home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to victory over the Yankees and Hank Aaron's 715th home run to pass Babe Ruth on the all-time list.
During the "Zagat's" sketch, Chris Farley's clip-on earring falls off, and even though he puts it back on, it falls off again later in the sketch.
At the end of the "This Week with Davd Brinkley" sketch, the pretaped angel and devil Bob Doles did not say "Live from New York..." in sync with the live Dole. This mishap was corrected for all reruns.
Tony Vallencourt (Adam Sandler) remembered beating up on Laker fans during a Celtics/Lakers game in 1984. Bur when he reflected on a Celtics/76ers game from 1981, he said he reencountered those same Laker fans and shaved their heads. "P***er? I think so, pal."
The Jim Croce song that paralyzed mime Frank Fisher paraphrases in the "Triumph Performers" segment ("You don't get drunk and wander into the zoo looking for rough sex") is actually "You Don't Mess Around With Jim," not "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown."
During Weekend Update, Joe Blow mentions that his neighbor across the street stole his garbage can and turned a 6 into an 8 with a magic marker. How is that possible if all even numbers are usually on the same side of the street?
Suel Forrester does not wear glasses.
During Weekend Update, Norm Macdonald points out that Dennis Rodman is naked, but you can clearly see that he is wearing a towel around his waist.
Myers asks Tim Meadows if he left the show with Chris Farley and David Spade, who did not leave the show together. Farley left in 1995 and Spade left in 1996.
Opening captions in Politica Non Correcto con Ramon Diaz Rojo, the Univisión edition of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, commit the cardinal sin of placing the tilde over the second A in "mañana."
John Travolta picked Continents for $600, but the $800 clue (the Daily Double) was revealed.
In the "Xena" sketch, Molly Shannon accidentally knocks Brendan Fraser's wig off. Fraser puts it back on rather sloppily and Molly Shannon breaks character.
During a wide angle shot in the "Matt Foley" sketch, one of the cameras is clearly visable for about three seconds.
During the now-classic "El Nino" skit, El Nino's challenge is accepted by Jim Breuer, who played the part of wrestling legend Ric Flair. However, during the skit, Flair was recognized as the Intercontinental Champion of the World Wrestling Federation. These people obviously haven't done their homework, because not only was Flair not currently in WWF (he was in World Championship Wrestling at the time), but he had never held the WWF Intercontinental Championship up to that point.
During the opening credits, it sounds like Don Pardo introduces Portishead as "Walrushead."
NBC released a 60-minute edit of this special in prime time roughly nine months later. Credits for this stripped special include "Soldier Field footage courtesy of WBBM-TV Chicago." That particular piece of footage, with Farley appearing as Todd O'Connor, was among the many bits discarded for the hourlong version.
While Gunner Olsen performs on "Weekend Update," the subtitles and the captions show different lyrics.
Response to Anne Frank goof: This is a joke refering to historically inaccurate Disney films like "Aladdin" and "Pocahontas."
In the TV Funhouse segment, Anne Frank is featured as a passenger on the Titanic. Anne Frank was born in 1929, seventeen years after the Titanic sank.
In the "Terrence Maddox" sketch, someone in the audience yells out "He looks like a refugee!" when Will Ferrell (as Maddox) takes his robe off. Also, Tim Meadows cracks up after Ferrell/Maddox talks directly to him.
