    So many great skits and characters. Share your favorite here.

    Gumby
    Matt Foley
    Wayne and Garth
    Jake and Elrose Blues
    Turd Ferguson

    Favorite all time skit was Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley, Chip and Dale dancer routine.

    Probably wouldn't really be all that cool. Too dated and would't translate to a pinball all that well. Unfortunately the time is past for a Blues Brother themed pinball.

    #3 1 year ago

    I think the concept is a little too large, honestly. It would be really tough to do an SNL pin. Much better to break it down into individual ideas, like a Wayne’s World pin, for instance.

    SNL, for how long it’s been around and how many spin-offs it’s generated, is really not the greatest show out there. The reason for their success is because they’ve been throwing sh!t at the walls for YEARS. Out of the occasional few chuckles the average show gets you, one or two will suddenly knock it out of the park and it becomes a sensational, sparkly turd that outshines the rest. It’s classic and yes when you remember it, it’s hilarious, but go back and watch it and you groan through everything else that you forgot ‘cause it was so painfully unfunny.

    I like it:

    Sensational Sparkly Turd multiball!

    #9 1 year ago

    Pinball is big on the past right now. It should include all the original not ready for primetime players. Some of them went onto be big stars.

    #10 1 year ago

    Me too. But only if it includes real quotes depicting his intellect.

    It would be way funnier than any SNL themed pin.

    about as cool as the show is anymore!

    #14 1 year ago

    Very uncool. It had its time but now is so bad I wouldn't havea nything to do with that theme in my home, where my wife sleeps, where my children come and play with their toys.

    May as well call it Farley, Murphy, and Sandler a pinball misadventure

    I loved SNL in the 80's an 90's but I don't think it's aged well

    #17 1 year ago

    Odin its nice to see ur life functions are still active, now theres a SNL skit turned into a movie that I would love to see as a pin.

    SNL is way too big to translate into one pin. There’s just too much content.

    #23 1 year ago

    I want to see a Dirk Diggler pin

    #24 1 year ago

    SNL sucks...it has sucked for 30 years
    And when it was "good" in the 80's, it still kinda sucked

    #25 1 year ago

    I enjoy SNL, but have zero interest in turning it into a pinball machine.

    Oh, Michael....

    #27 1 year ago

    I kinda feel that SNL is borderline ahead of it's time. The comedy is only golden in retrospect.

    #28 1 year ago

    Some of me and my wife's fav's in recent years:

    #29 1 year ago

    Who watches that show anymore??

    #30 1 year ago
    Quoted from timab2000:

    Who watches that show anymore??

    We do...DVR it each week. It's our bedtime show.
    Seriously, you can't tell me that the clips I posted above aren't funny.

    These one's had us rolling. Thus why I wanted to share.

    #31 1 year ago
    Quoted from timab2000:

    Who watches that show anymore??

    We do! Love the show. There can be more misses than hits, but some of those hits can be fantastic.

    The show definitely skews based on political leanings, so if you are on the other side of the fence there's a lot to dislike about the show. Was it always this way? Not sure.

    Agree that the overall show doesn't work as a pin, but particular skits (David S Pumpkins pin!) definitely could.

    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT!!!

    SNL was good in the early 90s. However the Cheri Oteri, Chris Kattan, Molly Shannon, Chris Parnell years were freggin unwatchable. Amazing how a show could make Will Ferrell unfunny.

    However, the cast from the early mid-late 2000s: Bill Hader, Kristin Wiig, Fred Armisan, Jason Sudekeis, Andy Samberg...etc. was a force. I think by far that's the best cast to date and they rarely get the recognition because the late 90s cast and the current cast cast a shadow on modern SNL.

    Watch these skits and tell me I'm wrong...

    (H/T to the David S. Pumpkins link above as that would've absolutely made this list)

    #33 1 year ago

    It would have one good mode, 13 shitty ones and unlistenable music.

    I could get behind a Blues Brothers pin, but a SNL pin? Just no.

    The modes for a Blues Brothers pin.. the call outs... the possibilities.. that could be epic.

    Mission from God Mode.
    101 miles to Chicago mode.
    Carrie Fisher mode.
    CW mode.. Rawhide!
    4 whole fried chickens and a coke.

    #35 1 year ago

    Blues Bros. would be super. Raising drawbridge toy to jump with the ball!

    #36 1 year ago

    Blues brothers would be epic. But otherwise Lorne Michaels has lost all credibility.

    #37 1 year ago

    Now is the time we dance, for the multiball!

    Sorry but Blues Brothers gets it's own spin-off machine! Pun intended.

    #38 1 year ago

    My friends and I often quote, "interested" from this SNL sketch.

    #39 1 year ago

    +1 for Blues Brothers.... that would be Epic. You could actually build a story line about that in to a pin, with great music and potential for a great art package.

    The problem with SNL as a Pin is that while you could have lots of fun little modes based on the best skits, there's no way to tie it together.

    #42 1 year ago

    I would buy a It's Pat machine if it had a soundtrack by Ween. Quite possibly the smallest market segment in the world.

    #43 1 year ago

    I'd be in, only if it was cartoon drawings and animations instead of video

    MadTV would be much better.

    #47 1 year ago

    I guess you could have some “multi-ball” action?

    #48 1 year ago
    Quoted from SunnRAT:

    MadTV would be much better.

    In Living Color, would be the better option.

    #49 1 year ago

    Laugh in would be a better option.
