A hidden gem among so many performances on SNL's early years. A few highlights from the show which stood out to me: Chevy Chase literally phones it in, kind of acknowledging that he's left the show. Richard Belzer steps in his place for the opening skit. Eric Idle premiers his The Ruttles sketches before American audiences. KLOG's sketch makes fun of AM/FM radio and is Ankroid at his best. Swine Flu jokes are strangely pertinent by the Killer Bees. Joe Cocker sings "You are So Beautiful" with half his shirt unbuttoned, and appears to wildly drunk during the performance.
Until Hulu incorporates more of the old sketches, this is worth watching the full episode. Especially classic skits that time forgets.
