Is it all Jimmy Fallon?: SNL Cast Breaking Compilation

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Saturday Night Live. They also know that I claim to have started Scientology (but that’s a story for a different day). Anywho, one of the great moments in any SNL season is when a cast member genuinely breaks in a sketch. For those of you who don’t know the term “break”, it means to break character, but more simply put, it means you laugh. Lorne Michaels (creator and producer of SNL) is known for not enjoying breaking as he thinks it’s a cheap way to get laughs and cast members know this, so when they break, it usually is pretty organic and genuine. With that said, some fan has put together a great couple of video compilations of SNL cast members breaking. It is a good mix of old and more recent sketches. Full disclosure, if you haven’t seen the sketches, these breaks may not be as funny out of context, but for big fans of the show (I think there is about 6 of us left), …

No, not the ones you are thinking of: Ghost Busters (1975) Theme

We all know the Ghostbusters (and it’s iconic theme song), there is no question about that. We also know that those Ghostbusters later had a cartoon based on the movie and it too had a great theme song (as it is the same one). Heck, most of us probably remember the “other Ghost Busters” cartoon that always seemed to be on instead of the good cartoon (you know, the one based on the movie. We just talked about this). Everyone still with me? Good. But did you know there was an original live-action version that predates them all which aired back in 1975? Well I didn’t, so back off! Anywho, this little piece of terribleness ran for 1 season (15 episodes) and was the original concept that would later turn into the crappier cartoon. It also had one of the most beautiful theme songs you will ever hear. It’s like hearing angels sing you a lullaby. Please enjoy. Just kidding! It’s the worst! This show honestly should have been cancelled after the first airing of …
