Description by OLDIES.com:

"SCTV" Is On The Air!

"SCTV"'s incredible fifth season finds them renewed and back on NBC. Martin Short explodes in this season with his characters Ed Grimley, Jackie Rogers Jr. and Brock Linehan. Plus the Shmenges are back and John Candy does Divine Doing Peter Pan.

Robin Williams guest stars in the "Jane Eyrehead" episode, and later in the season Martin Short does a fabulous send-up of him doing a "Taing" commercial. Also guesting and performing are Joe Walsh, John Cougar Mellencamp, Harold Ramis, Fred Willard, America and more. And Catherine O'Hara returns for a special guest appearance in the "Christmas" episode.

Look for Vic Arpeggio, Private Investigator and parodies of Midnight Cowboy (John Candy as Joe Buck), The Towering Inferno, A Star Is Born and What Ever Happened To Baby Jane [Ed]? - more proof that these shows just kept getting better.

Product Description:

An edgier version of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, the Canadian sketch comedy series SCTV premiered in 1977 and ran for three seasons in a half-hour format before being picked up by NBC and expanded to 90 minutes in 1981. Unusual for a sketch comedy series, SCTV's skits were tied together by the framing device of a fictional television network populated by feuding newscasters, dishonest talk show hosts, failed cabaret singers, fishing musicians, and other eccentric show biz types. In between were sketches of biting contemporary satire delivered by an inspired cast of future stars: Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Rick Moranis, Catherine O'Hara, Dave Thomas, and the late, great John Candy. This collection includes the series' entire fifth season, which bid adieu to Thomas, Moranis, and O'Hara, but featured newcomer Martin Short--and his iconic Ed Grimley character--in a more prominent role. Featuring such classic shows as "Towering Inferno," "Christmas Special," "Midnight Cowboy," "Sweeps Week," and "Jane Eyrehead," the fifth season also included guest appearances by Robin Williams, John Mellencamp, Joe Walsh, and Crystal Gayle.
