The Mr. Belvedere Fan Club Sketch from Saturday Night Live

brocktoon

In 1991, during season 17 of Saturday Night Live, Tom Hanks and the talented ensemble cast performed a sketch about a group of people obsessed with the TV show Mr. Belvedere. I remember watching this sketch when it ran originally and cracking up. I often take my dedication show to somewhat ridiculous levels of personal fandom, but these people go above and beyond and boy does it get dark really quickly. If you have not seen it before, please give it a watch.

Only afterwards will you be allowed into the Legion of Brocktoon.

Thanks to Legion of Brocktoon leader, Mark Wilson for his constant Belvedere reminders on Facebook. One day he will live in that jar I had put in my basement.
