Alternate Versions

Due to music clearance issues, some of the episodes on the DVD sets of the show are edited. Some sketches simply have music replacements, while a few sketches had to be trimmed to exclude certain musical performances by the cast (such as Andrea Martin as Edith Prickley singing a line from "Whistle While You Work" in a sketch, or Catherine O'Hara as Dusty Towne and Rick Moranis as Merv Griffin having to cut out various songs they perform in their sketches). As of Volume 3, none of the actual guest musical performances have had to be cut. As of Volume 3, the only full sketch to be cut is "Stairways to Heaven;" A Compilation Album of various artists performing "Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zeppelin refused clearance of their song.

Wonderful, Classic Comedy
1 July 2003 | by donjeffriesSee all my reviews

SCTV was always a great show, but during the brief rein of "Network 90," the series really hit its stride. Mired in an awful time slot (12:30 a.m., just after the "Tonight Show"), it nonetheless built a loyal audience. The ensemble cast of "Network 90" was SCTV's strongest, especially for the handful of brilliant shows when Martin Short first joined the cast, and Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis hadn't left yet. All cast members perfected stunning imitations of noted celebrities, but most people probably recall the original characters even more fondly. Dr. Tongue, Count Floyd, Lola Heatherton, Sammy Maudlin and every member of "Pre-Teen World" and "Five Neat Guys" are some of my favorites. I'd love to see a great box release of SCTV's best on DVD.
