* ''Series/MADtv'' -- ''Saturday Night Live'''s rival sketch show from 1995-2009. Is considered the longest-running sketch show on FOX and the longest-running [[DuelingShows dueling show]] to ''SNL''. Has a SpiritualSuccessor in the form of the Creator/CartoonNetwork sketch show ''MAD'' and Comedy Central's ''Key & Peele'' and two cast members who have jumped ship from ''Series/MADtv'' to be on ''SNL'' ([[http://snl.jt.org/cast.php?i=JeRi Jeff Richards]] -- who lasted on ''SNL'' from 2001 to mid-2004 -- and [[http://snl.jt.org/cast.php?i=TaKi Taran Killam]] -- who joined the ''SNL'' cast in 2010 and is still on the show). It should be noted that the premise of a sketch comedy show based on ''MAD Magazine'' (be it animated, like ''WesternAnimation/{{MAD}}'', or live-action, like this show) is [[OlderThanTheyThink not exactly a new idea]]: in the early 1970s, a pilot was made for an animated sketch show based on ''MAD Magazine'', using all the artwork for their movie and TV show parodies (the pilot had parodies of ''The Godfather'' and ''Columbo''), along with their satirical pieces, like "The Parent Awards." The pilot has never aired on TV (as executives thought it wouldn't appeal to anyone) and now exists as a rare treasure that's [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes somewhere out on the Internet]].

* ''Film/TheKentuckyFriedMovie'' -- Written by the ZAZ team and directed by Creator/JohnLandis. Basically a sketch comedy movie rather than AnthologyFilm, with one long segment ("A Fistful of Yen", which runs a half-hour and takes up over a third of the film), and a whole bunch of other segments that are all less than ten minutes and mostly less than five minutes.
