Meet Loafy, the Weed-Dealing Manatee

Before he became a star on "SNL," Bobby Moynihan had an idea for a cartoon about a weed-dealing manatee. The studios said no, but we're bringing "Loafy" to life on "UnMade."

Storyline

A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band, and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Alternate Versions

Two more sketches of Chris Rock's were edited for TV and not for video. For example, the "Russell Simmonds' Def Emergency Room Jam" has all the bad words bleeped, on NBC the part where the doctor (Chris) yells "Breathe nigga!" three times changed to one. When released to video on THE BEST OF CHRIS ROCK, the only edited parts are the bad words bleeped, but when released under THE BAD BOYS OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, no bad words are bleeped, except for the f-word. In the other one, "Russell Simmonds Def Magic Show Jam", swear words are all bleeped out. But when released on the home video: THE BAD BOYS OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, all the bad words are intact, except for the f-word. But when the BAD BOYS program aired on TV, the edited version was played. See more »

Been a long time since SNL was great
12 November 2018 | by BrianknowsmoviesSee all my reviews

SNL. Used to be an every Saturday night show to watch as a kid with great genre defining talent with both the superb writers and ad lib capable actors who were almost all worthy of having their own shows after.

Started with the likes of Candy, Chase, Murphy, Belushi and kept on being great with Ferrel, Farley, Carvey, Myers ...but soon after the turn of the century I struggle to think of any names and would need the internet to tell me anyone else who was on there other than maybe remembering one of the non-comedian guests who might have had a show and I MIGHT tune in for those segments.

Writing is now more PC and the party-fueled creativity is gone...it now seems too corporate controlled and they can only think of how to make political jokes of republicans..although some likenesses are good and well done...it just gets old and overdone and the show doesn't have the magic it used to. Times have changed I guess and the show is more about having some guest on to help plug whatever movie show they are on or pushing corporate sponsored political ideology.

They would have to loosen the reigns and run things like they used to to usher in new era but the times may be too PC for a show like this to be as successful and culturaly relevant like it used to be. Used to be a 10, now a 3.
