SNL Holiday Flashback

It's Saturday, which means it's also time to post a classic holiday flashback clip from Saturday Night Live. This week's clip was first broadcast in 1984, some 33 years ago, and it features Eddie Murphy in a parody of the PBS mainstay"Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood," starring the late Fred Rogers. Murphy's spoof, called "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood," is pretty far removed from PBS's neighborhood of make believe.  In Robinson's neighborhood, Christmas is the time when flim-flam artists cash in bigand a Santa suit is best used to evade the landlord.
