What The Hell Is That?

I have searched YouTube, Google and the MetaFilter archives until my eyes are bugging out of my head, so please forgive me if this has been posted. I'm trying to find a video of the SNL sketch with Steve Martin and Bill Murray, I believe from 1978, "What the hell is that?" Can anyone help?

It's not the video, but here's the transcript and two stills.

And someone else'll have to take the ball from here.

Trying to find any older Saturday Night Live skits on the internet seems to be impossible. I've been looking for John Mackey the weatherman for some time.

My theory is that NBC aggressively takes on any unauthorized reproductions.

Thanks for trying.

SNL uses hulu.com now. There are some old skits up there, but not much, and it doesn't look like this is one of them.

It's definitely not on Hulu — that was the first place I checked.

There is a torrent of the SNL "Best of" DVD that has the skit, however, or you could purchase the DVD.

I'm pretty sure I've seen it on one of the "Best of" DVDs...except, which in THE hell was it? WHICH in the hell was it? which in the hell WAS it?

"Hey kids, don't put your lips on it!!"

That one was so dumb, but hilarious. As were all the old SNL gems. Or is it just nostalgia?

If anyone turns up Theodoric of York- Medieval Barber, yet me know.
