I was just watching the NBC special on the original Saturday Night Live tonight. In one sketch they showed, Dan Ackroyd was President Jimmy Carter and he was on a call in show with Walter Cronkite (played by Bill Murray) I believe the sketch was probably from 1977. The joke was that Carter was an absolute expert on everything no matter how minute or unlikely. On caller says he is tripping on acid and is panicking. Carter proceeds to identify the drug as "Orange Sunshine" and "talks him down". He then advises the guy to stay inside and listen to some music untilt he drug wears off. His final statement is "Do you have anything by the Allman Brothers?" Although I remeber this old sketch, I do not remember the ABB reference. This was, of course at the height of their popularity, if not their greatness. Anyone else remember this or see it?

Yes, I remember that from the original airing of the show(!), and it definitely was an ABB reference. Funny skit.

This was one of the funniest sketches ever. The guy is tripping on acid andJimmy Carter is talking him down. I almost peed when Akroyd as Carter said, "Remember - you're a human organism on this planet."

Yep! I remember this one. Classic Akroyd.

Remember the Akkroyd playing Carter skit about "The Pepsi Syndrome?"...

I have a vague recollection of the "acid-trip" sketch, but don't remember the ABB reference. I would have been quite young when that aired.

Another music-related favorite was from weekend update. Mick Jagger is a guest on the show, but for the sketch, you've got Mike Meyers playing Mick, and Mick Jagger playing Keith Richards. It was hilarious.

I also remember Sting doing a hilarious, dead on Billy Idol one time.

My 2 favorites from the early days: Richard Pryor describing an acid trip("I forgot how to breathe!!"), and Jonh Belushi next to Joe Cocker while he's singing. Hilarious.

The best thing about that was Cocker didn't know Belushi was going to sneak up beside him. John planned the whole thing at the last second.

Was there also a reference to Kristofferson? I vaguely remember it. I remember when it aired. The reason I ask is that I've been looking for that song he mentions by Kristofferson, but never knew the name of it at the time. Thanks,

mike

God.....some of the most hilaruous moments on TV are from the "old" SNL. How about the old shark knocking at the door and pretending to deliver a candy gram, then Gilda or whoever opens the door and the shark just eats her ass.

I just picked up a boxset which shows 25 years of SNL musical guests...quite entertaining, they've had many, many good live appearances. They have the Cocker guest spot... he really doesn't look too happy at first, but he's a good sport about it.

The Simon & Garfunkel appearance is included, it's classic, as well as Casey Jones done by Grateful Dead with Jerry lookin' spry. There's lots more of course...5 discs with some musical comedy sketches thrown in, like Steve Martin doing "King Tut". Sadly, no ABB.

I don't beleive the ABB were ever on SNL to begin with, so itd be hard to have them on the box set.

One of my favorites SNL skits:

Julian Bond being interviewed by Garrett Morris in a news program type setting.


Julian Bond: Light skinned blacks are smarter than dark skinned balcks.

An indignant Garrett Morris: SAY WHAT ? !!!!!!

What was funny about that is that Morris asked why lighter skin balcks often act like they are smarter and better than dark skinned.

Bond, in full deadpan responds "Because it's true." He then goes on to explain in detail why lighter skinned blacks are smarter than dark skinned blacks. The sustained irony is so heavy it is non-stop gut-busting. That could never get on television today.
