** Wanda the Ugly Woman. For example, during the Season 5 premiere when she's about to give birth, she says "Look, doctor, this pain is too much. I think you're gonna have to do one of them Caesar salad sections[[note]]caesarean section[[/note]] on me."
** Deronda and Pookie are another example.

* FreezeFrameBonus: In the skit featuring the wall of women that basketball great Wilt Chamberlain slept with, some names featured on the wall include comiedienne/actress Ruth Buzzi (whose surname is mispelled with a "y"), Creator/DrewBarrymore and 1940s singing group The Andrew Sisters.


Added DiffLines:

** The Thighmaster skit with Kelly Coffield portraying Suzanne Somers ends with her husband coming home with ''a squashed-in head.'' Use your imagination to comprehend how exactly ''that'' slipped by the censors. Even better, there's a clip on [=YouTube=] where Somers is actually lampshading this notion several years after the fact.
** Much of the dialogue of the "Men on..." skits fell victim to this, to the point where some of it only aired once and the majority of it hasn't been seen since. Examples include the infamous "drop the soap" line and "I never got to see the dick!", both featured in the same "Men on Films" skit, the comments implying that both football legend Joe Namath and Olympic sprinter Carl Lewis were homosexuals from "Men on Football" and the implied "ejaculation" scene from "Men on Exercise".[[note]]though the latter scene has been seen in syndicated airings[[/note]] However, some examples that made it by successfully are the "Two snaps and wipe your mouth" from "Men on Cooking" and Blaine telling Antoine, "Don't swallow" when giving him his water bottle during a fight movie they did and he replying, "I never do."

* BaitAndSwitch: "King: The Early Years" begins as if its a story about Martin Luther King, Jr., showing a white kid and a black kid getting into an argument at school. Instead, it turns out the King in question is Don King, who organizes a fight between the two kids and gets paid by the other kids to watch it.

* BlandNameProduct: Sketches would use the actual names of companies being parodied, but the spelling would be slightly off (for example, "The ''Exxxon'' Family").

* WorldOfHam: This is very much the spirit of the series and it's performers, which is justified considering the [[VarietyShow environment they're in]]. Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, David Alan Grier and Tommy Davidson were most likely to engage in this to the point of becoming HamToHamCombat.
