Episode #22 - The Coneheads (1983)

Live from Remulak, it's Network Special! This week on the show Nathan and Zachariah take you deep into the Rankin/Bass vaults to bring you a very special animated version of the famous Dan Aykroyd/Jane Curtin/Laraine Newman sketch from Saturday Night Live. This was a failed pilot that aired as a TV special on NBC. Fortunately, the network was kind enough not to pick it up and helped the writing team of Tom Davis and Al Franken to avoid the embarrassment of having to write more of these miserable scripts. Tune in for mass quantities of laughter!
