WATCH: The Coneheads on “Family Feud” – SNL Saturday Night Live Season 3, 1978

One of the great recurring sketches from the early days of Saturday Night Live was The Coneheads, about a family of aliens with bald conical heads who, when confronted about their unusual appearance claimed they were “From France” and somehow that appeased the questioner. It premiered on the January 15 episode (Season 2 episode 11) and starred Dan Aykroyd as the father Beldar, Jane Curtin as the mother Prymaat, and Laraine Newman as the daughter Connie. It was later made into a movie which was okay.

This sketch is from early in Season 3, about the time the time SNL was really hitting its prime, and features the Coneheads on the popular game show “Family Feud, against a family called the Mels made up of dad, Steve Martin, mom Gilda Radner and son, John Belushi. Bill Murray is host Richard Dawson (remember when he was the host) and the combination is nothing short of genius.

Watch and enjoy!
