* Rick Moranis' brutal parody of Creator/MervGriffin, especially Griffin's laugh ("Boo-hoo-hoo-wah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!") and his tendency to say "oooohhhh!" a lot. Then they take it UpToEleven by placing Griffin in the most bizarre, unlikely situations: playing [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Andy Taylor]], time traveling to TheSixties to hang out with [[Film/EasyRider Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper]], and getting involved in a ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' [=/=] ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' [=/=] ''Franchise/StarWars'' mashup.

* ''Battle of the {{Creator/PBS}} Stars'' brilliantly skewered highbrow and lowbrow TV in a single shot, with the [[Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood Mr. Rogers]] versus Creator/JuliaChild boxing match being one of the great moments of the entire series.

* In 1982, SCTV won an Emmy for outstanding writing. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4HXCyfcD6M The whole spectacle is hilarious in many, many meta senses]].
** The fact that SCTV had ''all but one'' of the nominations, each for a different episode.
** When they inevitably win, the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters absolute crap ton of people that swarm the stage]] and the fact that it takes the announcers quite some time to list them all off and hand everyone their awards.
** An evidently-bitter Milton Berle keeps interrupting Joe Flaherty's acceptance speech with sarcastic "oh, that's funny" and "we don't have all day" comments, to which Joe responds by saying "Go to sleep, Uncle Miltie," an amusing crack at Milton's Texaco Star Theater closing line ("Listen to your Uncle Miltie and go to bed").
** The fact that in the next season, one sketch included Joe Flaherty ''out of character'' assaulting Milton Berle while yelling "You'll never ruin another acceptance speech, Uncle Miltie!"
** Then they won again the next year, and presumably, that was infinitely less funny.

* Bobby Bittman was given a 30-minute mockumentary on his life and career on Creator/{{Cinemax}} (long after ''SCTV'' ended) in 1988. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y45jwvglWJU It must be seen to be believed.]]
