Full list of sketches
3 September 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

IMDb now has the 1989 compilation and the 1998 compilation, but there's also a 2004 DVD out there. And they're all different. I have them all and I made a full sketch list. The previous comment from Rijswijk that talks about the 1998 is actually mistaken. The user is actually talking about the 2004 version.

See my post on the Message Board below for the full list. The formating in the comments don't really allow for lists.

The sketches themselves are mostly funny. I love 80s Eddie and I love SNL, especially the old stuff, even the dreaded 80s seasons. Sure, not all of it is great, but that's true of every season.
