Driving Miss Daisy spoof?

Does anyone remember a spoof of Driving Miss Daisy?

Hopefully someone knows what I'm referring to. It was a spoof of Driving Miss Daisy. I think it was on Saturday Night Live (but I could be remembering incorrectly). I don't think it was the episode with Toonces, the driving cat. What I do remember is that Miss Daisy is in the back seat nagging at Hoke, and at some point he says, "I know what you want, Miss Daisy, and I'm gonna come back there and give it to you!" (or something to that effect). Does anyone remember seeing this? Hope that someone has some info. Thanks!

I remember "Driving Over Miss Daisy," where the driver runs her over repeatedly by backing over her and driving forward again.

Was it animated? Because there was a saturday tv funhouse special fairly recently that had a (very short) driving ms. daisy spoof as part of another sketch type thing. It was a black history month thing about tv shows that had black main characters (as opposed to token characters with no lines) or something along those lines.

It wasn't animated. I thought that maybe it was Eddie Murphy, but I can't remember.

Oh wow, I remember that, but only as much as what you've already described... I'm pretty sure it was SNL (or maybe, as saraswati says, on MAD-TV)... I think the segment had like a jokey-porny pun as the title.

Wierdo, that "Driving Over Miss Daisy" gag is from "Stay Tuned." In case you couldn't place it, I guess.

Didn't Toonces, the driving cat on Saturday Night Live, do a Miss Daisy sketch?
