Eddie Murphy on SNL was some of the funniest stuff I ever saw growing up and much to my deligh, last weekend, NBC re-ran the December 1984 episode he hosted. It was the last time he appeared on the show. Weekend Update with the dolls, Buckwheat, Gumby, Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood all still burned in my mind.
SNL will celebrate it's 40th Anniversary with a special episode on February 15th - and if I wasn't already excited enough...Eddie Murphy has confirmed that he will be appearing!
