** The Cosby Condom sketch with Jamie Foxx as Bill Cosby. Back then, it was funny because it juxtaposed Cosby's alleged wholesomeness with something that wasn't wholesome (i.e., sex and the fact that condoms were being advertised on TV, which, back then, was considered shocking). These days, with Cosby being accused of drugging and sexually assaulting female celebrities, there is a bitter irony that lingers when watching this parody commercial today.

** In a ''Star Trek'' skit that poked fun at how old the original Star Trek cast was getting, Bones is portrayed as a skeleton. The actor who originally played Bones, [=DeForest=] Kelley, was the first of the original cast to die.

** The season five remix of the first theme isn't bad either (and is probably the only good thing people can say about season five).

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In the first season skit of "The Arsenio Hall Show", when Keenan!Arsenio was running around and rolling on the stage, you can see the padding used to make him appear to have a larger butt.
** In the season three skit of [[TheAce a woman who knew how to do everything]], one of the things she apparently knew how to do is solve the Rubik's Cube in seconds. However on closer inspection, you can see that it wasn't solved at all.
* ValuesResonance: While many of the segments tend to [[ValuesDissonance invert]] this trope, the topics about race relations (specifically the ones featured in the "Why?" segments, i.e., why do newscasters put accented emphasis on foreign-sounding names of minorities but not Caucasians, why even the simplest of products advertised by minorities have to include rapping, etc.) still have prevalence to this day.
