5.0 out of 5 stars wICKEDLY FUNNY STUFF FROM SNL December 7, 2004
Since the beginning, Saturday Night Live has always given us brilliant holiday sketches. This collection combines the classic original cast, right up to recent casts of the late 90's.

The list of skits includes:

Candace Bergen interviewing Dan Ackroyd as ruthless toymaker Irving Mainway who sells toys like "Bag O' Glass" and Johnny Switchblade Punk action figure.

John Lovitz who has to fill-in for Santa Clause playing Hanukah Harry...

The Classic Alec Baldwin on NPR radio sketch discussing his Shweaty Balls with Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer...

Steve Martin doing his fireside.."My Wish for Christmas.." routine...

John Belushi as a drunken mall Santa...

The Lost Ending to "It's a Wonderful Life"

Gasteyer as a topless Martha Stewart...

Eddie Murphy doing a "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood" bit...

Adam Sandler doing his usual Hannukah song...

All good fun and most of it very good.

Each and every year, I look forward to SNL's holiday special. There are so many hilarious bits that've aired over the years that the show never disappoints. Naturally, when this DVD was made available, I bought it right away.

Now, for my money, this DVD is worth it for the "Dysfunctional Family Christmas Album" ad alone, but there are lots of other bits that are fantastic, too. Eddie Murphy's classic "Mr. Robinson" is great, as is Steve Martin's "Christmas Wish". No SNL Christmas DVD would be complete with Candace Bergen & Dan Aykroyd in "Consumer Probe" (featuring Dan Aykroyd as the head of Mainway Toys, makers of "Bag O' Glass" and "Johnny Switchblade: Adventure Punk"), or the original "Not Ready For Primetime Players" singing "Winter Wonderland". These sketches are featured along with Adam Sandler's "Hannukah Song" and Jon Lovitz in "Hannukah Harry" (yes, it IS on the DVD, contrary to some other reviews posted).

Like many other reviewers, I was very disappointed that the classic "Sweeney Sisters" Christmas sketch (featuring William Shatner) was not included. In my opinion, "The Sweeney Sisters" bit was one of the funniest things ever on SNL and to exclude this sketch from the DVD seems completely ridiculous. For this reason, I can't give the DVD full marks.

It's a great DVD, though, and I get a lot of laughs every time I watch it. Definitely worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs a Part II December 12, 2005
Excellent collection of skits that will get multiple viewings out of any SNL fanatic. A reviewer mentions that there's no "Haunaukah Harry" skit; don't worry, it's definitely there ("on Hershal, on Moshe, on Shlomo!!").

What's here is great, but there are so many more to include. Someone already mentioned the lack of Sweeney Sisters. There was also a great Christmas "Mommie Dearest" skit with Gilda Radner & Jane Curtin that I'd love to see. If I'm not mistaken, there was also an "Uncle Roy" themed Christmas skit. I don't believe there's any Will Farrell on here, nor are there the Christmas Greetings from Frankenstein, Tarzan and....I forget the third person.

Release part II!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but no Hanukah Harry! December 13, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video was pretty funny. It had mostly newer stuff. I would have liked to have seen stuff from the earlier years. Also, a sticker on the package advertises that the Hanukah Harry skit with Jon Lovitz is on the video, but mysteriously it is nowhere to be found! I am certain there is more material they could have put on this 65 minute video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santa's Living in A Van Down By the River! October 13, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Christmas is a special time of the year. There have been houndreds and thousands of great Christmas flicks. But even the classic "It's a wonderful life" fails to capture the true spirit of Cristmas as well as Chris Farley dressed up as a mall Santa Claus/motivational speaker. This is the funniest SNL sketch EVER! Chris Farley takes his Matt Foley character to new levels as St. Nick. David spade is also hilarious as Santa's snotty little elf. At one point in the skit Santa reads a Christmas poem to a child sitting on his lap. The piece starts out like the classic "T'was the Night before Christmas." and just as I was hoping for, it ended with, "...and I said with a quiver, because I'm living in a van down by the river!" The rest of the tape was pretty funny. But no other sketch made me laugh as hard as the Farley one. So, If you feel like another year of Miracle on 34th street. Go ahead. But if you want to really get into the Christmas spirit, buy this tape, gather around the fireplace with your family, and enjoy the comedic beauty of SNL.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty funny August 14, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
A good collection of clips, but Hannukah Harry isn't included as advertised, so be aware. Adam Sandler's hysterical "Hannukah Song" however, is - it's almost worth it to buy the whole video just for that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prettty good mix of old and new April 12, 2004
I'm a pretty big SNL fan. I don't get to watch as much as I'd like to anymore, but it's the most consistent funny show on tv. The SNL Christmas special is a great DVD.
It does have some notable skits. I love the skit with Alec Baldwin and the NPR ladies. It's so funny because all of them play being so serious so well. I laugh so hard every time I see this skit.
I liked the Martha Stewart topless christmas. She is such an easy target to make fun of and they do it great in this skit. Martha Stewart is annoying because of the way she talks and the way she presents herself. They spoof it so well in topless christmas. It's one of the better skits on the dvd.
All the skits with old SNL members are great. Dan Akroyd is one of the funniest guys to live and his skits as the toliet paper saleman and the toymaker are great.
Are two favorite SNL drunks Farley and Belushi both have some good stuff there fans should like.
Adam Sandler does the Hannakuh song. It's not the best version of the song, but it is the original and what a funny song it is.
I love this DVD. It's one of the better best of's they've made and I'm glad it's part of my collection.
