Trivia

Dana Carvey could not attend, but did record a new "Where are they now" spoof with Kevin Nealon as Hans and Franz. However, when the show ran late this sketch was cut. It was first broadcast on 16 October 1999, during an episode of SNL hosted by Heather Graham. The Hanz and Franz skit is still included on the DVD of the 25th Anniversary. See more »

Quotes

Christopher Walken: I want to know how much of the show is scripted and how much crazy make'em up: you know, addlibs, improvs.
Tom Hanks: A legidiment question. Contrary to popular belief, the show is not improvised, SNL has a great staff of writers that craft every line of the show.
Christopher Walken: When I host, I say whatever I want. I free associate and I make up the skits and things like that and people seem to enjoy it.

25 years and still going
3 May 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

SNL celebrates it's 25th anniversary with great clips and getting most of the old cast members back together. The clips are hilarious, going as far back as 1975. The clips here are the best this show turned out, including Bill Murray as a lounge lizard, singing 'Star Wars'. This special also included a small parody of 'The Blair Witch Project.' Besides bringing back most of the old cast, this special also featured famous celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld and Tom Hanks. And last, but not least, there is also a look at Weekend Update clips presented by Dennis Miller, Chevy Chase and (surprise, surprise) Norm Macdonald. This special was loads of fun.
