The Best Saturday Night Live Sketches of the 80s

The best 'Saturday Night Live' sketches of the 80s featured some of the funniest and most memorable characters ever created for the show. At the center of it all: Eddie Murphy (at least for several years). Murphy's funniest characters included Buckwheat, Gumby and Mr. Robinson (from the parody 'Mister Robinson's Neighborhood'). Martin Short's Ed Grimley, a character he originally portrayed on 'SCTV,' is another phenomenal sketch worth noting. Other great 'SNL' 1980s sketches include Jon Lovitz's "Master Thespian," "Fernando's Hideaway" featuring Billy Crystal ("You look mahvelous!") and of course "Pumping Up with Hans & Franz," starring Kevin Nealon and Dana Carvey, some of SNL's best cast members.

List of SNL sketches from the 80s includes some real gems like 'SNL' fan favorites "Jackie Rogers, Jr.'s $100,000 Jackpot Wad" and Phil Hartman's hilarious "Anal Retentive Chef." If you haven't seen this one in forever, now's the time to watch. This list is vote ranked, which means you get to vote for your personal favorite 'Saturday Night Live' sketches from the 1980s (and vote down the skits you didn't like).
