'Wasn't That Special' Season Twelve Clips Package
As always, for those who have signed up for the podcast at the Executive Producer level, we send out notable video and newspaper clips that aided us in preparing for the episode. Below are some of the Saturday Night Live sketches and media clips we reference throughout the episode, to enhance the listening process.
So please help keep the podcast advertisement-free and upgrade to the Executive Producer level, which will keep these emails coming in the future!
(Although if you want to support us at a lower level and want to just hear the shows, you can do that, too!)
Here are some of the materials we discuss throughout the Season Twelve episode:
President Reagan, Mastermind
The best sketch of Season 12 and one of the greatest political sketches the show has ever produced. Written by Jim Downey and Al Franken, it finally got Reagan right. An amazing Phil Hartman performance.
Christian’s favorite forgotten sketch from this season. Danny DeVito is perfect.
Donahue: Exploited Women
Phil Hartman’s coming out party.
The second sketch of the season and the first featuring new cast members Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey, and Jan Hooks. An immediate sign that this show was totally different than the flop that was Season 11.
It’s the same joke over and over, but just as funny every time.
The Boyfriend Song
Victoria Jackson and Willie Nelson perform a sweet song written by Victoria. If this doesn’t make you say “awwww,” you’re not human.
