YMMV: Hey Hey Its Saturday
  • Dude, Not Funny!: On the 2009 reunion special, the "Red Faces" segment featured a notorious Michael Jackson tribute act called the "Jackson Jive", featuring five white dancers in blackface, and a black singer in whiteface singing "Can You Feel It?" Guest judge Harry Connick Jr. was appalled, and the network had to go into damage control. The remaining Jackson brothers were offended, but conceded that the act "probably wasn't trying to offend anyone".
    • Actually, only two of the "Jackson Jive" performers were of "White European" stock. Not that this excuses the offense they caused, mind.
