Many sketches on "Saturday Night Live" have become famous outside of the context of the show. "Wayne's World" spawned a set of popular movies that are still classics in present day. The original sketch premiered in 1990, but Wayne and Garth are still popular decades later.

"Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker" was one of Chris Farley's most popular sketches. Its blend of Farley's physical humor and hilarious warnings of living "in a van down by the river" make it memorable.

Bill Hader's character Stefon is one of the most popular "SNL" characters of the 21st century. Stefon appeared in many different skits, but his Halloween appearance on "Weekend Update" is a fan favorite.

"Behind the Music: Blue Oyster Cult" was a one-off sketch starring Will Ferrell, Christopher Walken, Chris Kattan, Horatio Sanz and Chris Parnell. Although it was not a recurring sketch, it became pop culture legend and spawned a popular catch phrase. Although not everyone knows what "more cowbell" means, "SNL" fans remember that the phrase first appeared on this sketch.

"Mr Robinson's Neighborhood" shows off just how funny Eddie Murphy can be. The parody of "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood" puts a dark spin on a children's classic.
