One of the major breakout stars to come out of the first years of Saturday Night Live was not one of the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players, but was instead born from a bit of clay and the creative mind of Walter Williams.
The 18 shorts that comprise The Best of Saturday Night Live: The Mr. Bill Collection exemplify the humor and outrageousness that we have come to expect from Mr. Bill, Spot, Mr. Hands, and of course, Sluggo. The plots, and budget, may have been simple and at some times poorly executed, but they remain a catalyst of laughter and bring back memories of staying up late just to see what troubles would cause Bill to utter his famous phrase: “Ohh, nooo!!!” We are treated to classic Mr. Bill exploits, such as “Mr. Bill’s Christmas Special,” “Mr. Bill Goes to New York,” and the inappropriately named “Mr. Bill Strikes Back,” as well as a bonus “Public Service Announcement” relating to highway education.

Although the quality of the film is not always the best, the humor remains intact. In 50┬áminutes, The Best of Saturday Night Live: The Mr. Bill Collection illustrates how he was one of the show’s brightest stars, all the while keeping his unkempt, independent charm. –Zachary Lively
