Let’s see, you guys touched upon the Mardi Gras debacle and the 1985 “Film Fest”

According to SNLArchives.net’s list of (wasn’t that) special episodes there are also this one, the 25th, 2 Primetime Extras in early February of 2001 (just looking at the Twin Towers in the logo, then the date is giving me a quick “eech”)

WU Halftime Special in 2003, three WU Thursdays in October of 2008, three in September of 2009, and two in September of 2012

Then the 40th and three more WU specials in August of 2017.

I distinctly remember watching an SNL in the 1990s documentary style special…and epguides https://epguides.com/SaturdayNightLive/ is telling me that aired in 2007…and lists a whole lot more special episodes! I’m guessing they aren’t all on SNLArchives due to no “new meant for entertaining content” 🤷🏻‍♂️
