Saturday Night Live - Universal Announces The Complete 4th Season (Aykroyd & Belushi's Last as Regulars)


Confirms the December 2nd release date we exclusively reported

Back in July we had the scoop that Saturday Night Live - The Complete 4th Season would be coming out on December 2nd. This morning Universal has confirmed that date with their official announcement for a 7-disc set on DVD. Video will be full screen, audio in English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, and the release is expected to have subtitles in English, French and Spanish. Cost will be $69.98 SRP.

Regulars this season continued to be the "Not Ready For Prime Time Players": Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi (in their final year on the show), Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, Garrett Morris and Bill Murray. Don Novello ("Father Guido Sarducci") stepped up in front of the camera, too, and Al Franken was seen as well. Guest hosts during these 20 episodes were Steve Martin, Buck Henry (twice), Carrie Fisher, Fred Willard, Walter Matthau, Elliott Gould, Eric Idle, Michael Palin (twice), Margot Kidder, Cicely Tyson, Kate Jackson, Maureen Stapleton, Rick Nelson, Richard Benjamin, Gary Busey and the legendary Milton Berle.

Frank Zappa both hosted AND was the musical guest in one episode, and also doing that sort of double-duty were The Rolling Stones during the 4th year's season opener! Other musical guests this season included, among others, The Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, The Doobie Brothers, Devo, Talking Heads, Linda Ronstadt, Bette Midler, Kate Bush, James Taylor, Peter Tosh and Mick Jagger and The Blues Brothers (Aykroyd & Belushi). Rodney Dangerfield makes a short appearance in one sketch this year.

Stay tuned for package art!
