Storyline

The host for the episode is Candice Bergen (her second appearance), and the musical guests are Martha Reeves and The Stylistics. The skits for this episode are as follows: President Ford delivers a special message for Christmas and falls out of a tree. An ad for a restaurant where customers can choose their cow, kill it and butcher it. A boy calls home from the police station to tell his parents he's killed 26 people. Candice Bergen invites people to send home movies to NBC, then shows her own movie of herself ice skating with the Bees. A young man comes out of the closet and admits to his family that he's an elf. A pair of strangers at a laundromat share a vicarious romance through their clothes. Two men discuss the prowess one of them has at pinball, while playing Pong. Gilda Radner lists off the things she ate at last year's Christmas.

My Very First Episode!
18 February 2011 | by (Las Vegas, NV. USA) – See all my reviews

Well, I don't know how old DKOSTY is or when he first saw this episode, but I first saw it on Dec. 20 1975 (it's first airing). In fact it was the very first episode of SNL I ever watched and it was by accident. I worked grave shift on Saturdays back then and had never even heard of SNL. On that Saturday I was home sick with the flu and had just awakened and turned the television on and SNL was already about fifteen minutes in. I almost changed the channel, but decided to see what this was and I must tell you that I'm glad I did, because it was the funniest and craziest thing I ever saw up until that time. I was laughing so hard and coughing from the flu that I honestly thought this show was going to kill me. Sure there have been better episodes since, but this was the one I broke my SNL cherry with. Last year it was also my first SNL download on ITUNES and I really enjoyed seeing it again after all these years.
