TV Deaths Edit

  • Saturday Night Live (Oct. 25, 1975) [Corpse]: Appears as a corpse at a funeral in a parody of the then-current Wrigley’s Gum commercials. (Note: this sketch is not included in the Saturday Night Live: The Complete First Season DVD set, presumably because the sketch used the actual Wrigley’s logo.) (Played for comic effect, as are the following)
  • Saturday Night Live (Jan. 17, 1976) [Corpse]: Appears as a corpse, superimposed on the screen to present the “News for the Dead”. (Note: the original broadcast also included a repeat of the Wrigley’s Gum parody, but again the sketch is cut from the DVD set.)
  • Saturday Night Live (Feb. 21, 1976) [Henchmen]: Machine-gunned, along with Chevy Chase and Tom Schiller, by Dan Aykroyd’s men during a raid on Desi Arnaz’ hideout.
