- 1+ 161- 28In this hysterical skit, Mr. Wilson (Richard Pryor), is being evaluated for a job via word association. Things go downhill very, very quickly. Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor. Doesn't get better. This clip originally aired during Saturday Night Live's first season in 1975.
- 2+ 111- 27This original SNL skit, "Bag of Glass," features toy maker Irwin Mainway (Dan Aykroyd) trying in vain to defend some of his nastier products for children (yes, including that bag of glass shards). 'Consumer Probe' host Candice Bergen does her best to put him in his place.
- 3+ 112- 31Who doesn't love "Land Shark"?! This original Saturday Night Live cast sketch first debuted in 1975, introducing everyone to this horrific and hysterically funny recurring character. Yes, the Land Shark preys on innocent victims, posing as everything from a plumber to yes, a candy-gram. Land Shark first made his appearance in Season One of SNL.
- 4+ 100- 27John Belushi's portrayal of a sword-wielding, totally insane samurai made for some of the best original SNL skits in the show's history. This particular skit, "Samurai Hotel," originally aired during Saturday Night Live's inaugural season in December of 1975. Belushi, Chevy Chase, and Richard Pryor – so, so funny!
- 5+ 81- 17Gilda Radner's hilarious Roseanne Roseannadanna is truly classic comedy. Here, she discusses smoking as the health correspondent for "Weekend Update." This clip originally aired during the fourth season of SNL, in 1978.
- 6+ 72- 16"Bassomatic" is an original cast sketch from the very first season of Saturday Night Live. The skit, which features the brilliant Dan Aykroyd, originally aired on April 17, 1976. Liquefied bass – delicious!
- 7+ 76- 20No list of classic original SNL sketches would be complete without including the "Coneheads." In this sketch from Season 2 of Saturday Night Live, mom and dad Conehead (Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin), are struggling with their rebellious daughter, Connie, (Laraine Newman). Ely Turnbull from the IRS (Steve Martin) also pays a visit. Fried chicken embryos, anyone?
- 8+ 76- 23It's Mr. Bill! 'The Mr. Bill Show' began as a response to SNL's request for home movies during it's first season. The response? This claymation character created by Walter Williams. Mr. Bill, Mr. Hands, and Spot were featured on Saturday Night Live many times in the 1970s and in 1986, Mr. Bill got his own feature film, "Mr. Bill's Real Life Adventures."
