“Brian Fellow’s Safari Planet”

Brian Fellow doesn’t like it when a parrot repeats his name saying “I’m Brian Fellow!” when, as Brian clearly states, the bird is not Brian Fellow. 

“Uncle Jemima’s Pure Mash”

Uncle Jemima wants to sell liquor like his wife, Aunt Jemima, sells pancakes. Cartoon birds fly around, creating a great happy-go-lucky opposition to the reality of selling liquor. 

“Big Bernard” 

Shaquille O’Neal is Tracy Morgan’s son who is late coming home. Despite being WAY too big, Tracy still decides to punish his son.

“Dominican Lou” 

No matter what situation Dominican Lou was in, he was always so funny, telling it like it is. 

“Lamont Bond”

The next Bond character should be Lamont Bond — everything is all set up and ready for him. He just has a few rules. 

“The View: Star Jones”

Viewers could always count on lawyer Star Jones to state the obvious. 

“Watching The Pianist”

Tracy Morgan and Bernie Mac missed the movie they wanted to see and end up watching “The Pianist.” Their commentary is hilarious. 


A new drug on the market will help men with surprise erections. 

“Maya Angelou”

Maya Angelou reads depressing poetic Hallmark cards, which she designed for celebrations like birthdays and anniversaries.

“A Song From SNL: I Wish it was Christmas Today”

We all wish it was Christmas today when this song plays. 

“Scared Straight: Underage Drinking”

Tracy Morgan and Kenan Thompson try to scare three teenage punks (Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Bobby Moynihan) into staying away from drinking.  

“King Kong (Director’s Cut)”

King Kong is way too happy when he finds (part of) himself inside Tracy Morgan and Salma Hayek’s apartment. 

Tracy Morgan hosts “Saturday Night Live” on October 17 at 11:30pm.
