The Best SNL Kid-Friendly Sketches of 2015

Happy 2016!  I looked back at all the Saturday Night Live Parent’s Guide’s from 2015 and chose the funniest, kid-friendly sketches of the year.  My kids are 12, 10, 8 and 5-and-three-quarters (because the 3/4’s matters).  I asked them to rank the clips and put them in order beginning with the funniest. Do your kids agree? What was their favorite?

Hotline Bling Parody – Drake (Jay Pharoah) defends his “Hotline Bling” dance moves, pointing out that dads (Beck Bennett), teachers (Taran Killam), tax guys (Donald Trump) and Ed Grimley (Martin Short) all dance like him. This was also the 5th most watched sketch of the year on YouTube according to Variety. Watch more of Donald Trump’s episode here.

Star Wars Toys – Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys are great for everyone ages 6 and up – way up. This is the full length version, (I posted a shorter clip of it on Facebook yesterday).  Fun and clean. Watch more of Chris Hemsworth’s episode here. 

Brian Fellow’s Safari Planet – even better than you remember. But here are the cautions: a beaver smokes and a “damn, you’re fine.” A really fun sketch made better by Aidy Bryant’s professor and Pete Davidson’s animal handler. Watch more of Tracy Morgan’s episode here.

The Rock Obama Cold Open – The President looses his cool and turns into The Rock Obama. Playful violence, but clean. Watch more of Dwayne Johnson’s episode here.


Avenger’s News Report – Thor , Iron Man, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury and Captain America celebrate defeating Ultron on live TV. Watch more of Chris Hemsworth’s first episode here.

Police Line Up – Probably the best sketch of Louis CK’s episode. Four amateur actors (Taran Killam, Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett and Louis CK) who take their gig in a police line-up waaaay to seriously. Fine for kids. Watch more of Louis CK’s episode here.

Rock Band – Gene Breads (Donald Trump) thinks his solo is unfairly short just because he plays the laser harp. Watch more of Donald Trump’s episode here.

Hometown Bar – Trevor (Kyle Mooney), a high school classmate of Ryan Gosling’s, interrupts his interview with a GQ reporter (Cecily Strong) to share embarrassing stories about him.  This is pretty great. Not sure what voice Kyle was doing but it was really fun to watch. Watch for Ryan to break. Watch more of Ryan Gosling’s episode here.
I think Hometown Bar and Police Line Up were two of my own favorite sketches from the year, but Trump’s “You used to call me on the cell phone” was definitely the most quoted sketch around our house this fall. What were your favorites?
