Vintage SNL filmed bit with birds wearing costumes.
An odd question, I know, but with the early years of Saturday Night Live now on DVD, maybe someone has seen this recently:
As a kid, I occasionally got to stay up late enough to watch SNL back in the classic years (pre-1980). I recall laughing to tears at a filmed bit they had somewhere in that stretch which involved footage of a bunch of birds wearing costumes -- mostly hats and little vest sort of arrangements that had fake arms on them so they appeared to be carrying things (pizza boxes, milk bottles, etc). I know that is pretty vague, but does it ring a bell for any SNL completist?
Just to make it clear: it was not live and did not have any humans in bird costumes, but rather birds in human costumes. And it is not this
, by the way, which seems to be the most common google hit for bird+snl. My sense is that it would have been pre-1980 but it may have been even as late as 1981 or 1982.
