Throwback Thursdays: Best SNL Skits (Part 1)

In homage to Justin Timberlake’s “Home Run” episode last Saturday below are a few of my favorite SNL sketches from back in the day:

1. “Buh-Weet Sings”

Eddie’s reign is really when I got down with SNL. Truth moment – watching it now I get a little twinge ’cause u know I’m like a politically correct black panther now but when I was a kid this ish was hiiiiiiii-arious.

“Wookin’ Pa Nub”

2. Mister Robertson’s Neighborhood

This skit (kinda) redeemed “Buh-Weet” because umm at least here we are addressing socio-economic issues of living in the ‘hood… Okay okay and some dysfunctional ish as well. Sigh. Whatever – STILL FUNNY!

“It’s one hell of a day in my neighborhood, a hell of a day for a neighbor. Would you be mine? Could you be mine? I hope I get to move in your neighborhood some day. The problem is when I move in y’all move away.” #Truuuuue

3. “Derek Stevens Chopping Broccoli”

My friend and I used to LOVE this clip and would fall apart in giggles re-enacting it. Awww childhood… 🙂

“She’s choppin’ broccoli!” #DanaCarvey!!

4. “Threw It On The Ground”

This one is here because like “Choppin’ Broccoli” this was another skit another friend and I would recite endlessly – as adults – and also fall into fits of laughter. Awww adulthood. 🙂

“Happy Birthday to the GROUND!!!”

5. “Katie Couric Interviews Sarah Palin”

Of course.

“Katie I’d like to use one of my lifelines.” #Awesome!

Note: I didn’t say these were the best SNL skits EVER, I said these were MY favorite SNL skits so you should feel free to put your own list together. Also I have sooooooo many more so there will definitely be a Part 2 (and probably a Part 3). 🙂

Oh and in case you haven’t been checking in for the last few days, I’m helping my mom (the fabulous Gladys Muhammad) with a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs so DONATE

    Chopping Broccoli is classic. And me and my brothers Fav was Buckwheat got shot. I still watch SNL and will watch until I die. While the funny sketches are sparse, I love to see the fresh new talent and look at them grow. I would like it more if they utilized the black comics.

      Yeah, Buckwheat got shot is definitely in the fav list as well, it will be included in Part 2. I would like it if they utilized more black comics who brought their own writers – ahem! Kevin Hart’s Episode vs Jamie Foxx’s Episode…
