FunnyOrDie Video Features 'SNL' Presidents Reunion

Holy 'Saturday Night Live' presidents reunion, Batman!

FunnyOrDie.com is famous for its riotous celebrity videos, but this one featuring current star Fred Armisen and 'SNL' veterans like Will Ferrell, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Darrell Hammond and Maya Rudolph, as well as an over-the-top performance by Jim Carrey, may take the cake.

In a dream, Armisen's Barack Obama is visited by Hammond as President Clinton, Carvey as President Bush Sr., Aykroyd as President Carter, Chase as President Ford, Ferrell as President Bush Jr and Carey as President Reagan.

Catch the video after the jump.

'Saturday Night Live's' Hall of TV Presidents

by Gabrielle Dunn, posted Feb 15th 2010 9:00AM
Fred Armisen as Barack Obama on Saturday Night Live'Saturday Night Live' is notoriously in top form during an election year, and the best part of any political sketch is a spot-on impersonation of the commander in chief.

A joke-ripe George W. Bush gave two Wills (Ferrell and Forte) their chance at playing presidential but we especially love oldies like Phil Hartman's sly Bill Clinton and Dana Carvey's eerie George Bush Sr. We can even suspend our disbelief to buy current cast member Fred Armisen as a faux Barack Obama.

In honor of President's Day, we bring you some of SNL's best presidential impressions. Hail to the chief(s)!

Happy 60th Birthday, Meet The Press

Meet The Press

Today marks the 60th birthday of NBC's Sunday morning news program, Meet The Press. It's the longest running TV show in history.*

It's funny because when Meet The Press started, there weren't that many TV news shows on the air. Now one could argue that there are too many. Meet The Press isn't really that special anymore. Past hosts have included Lawrence Spivak (who also created and produced the show), Ned Brooks, Bill Monroe, Marvin Kalb, Roger Mudd, Chris Wallace, Garrick Utley, and current host Tim Russert. Some people have said that the show isn't the same anymore because Russert has on guests like Stephen Colbert. I think that's ridiculous, because they've had comics on before. Though I do think the way that Russert conducted most of the interview, faux serious and trying to be jokey too, was odd.

* Longest running show period? Guiding Light, which debuted on radio in 1937 and then switched to TV in 1952.

President Palmer did a good job on 24President's Weekend is upon us, and besides looking forward to all those nifty sales being offered at your local car dealership, how else should you best commemorate this day?

Sure, our real president may be less than desirable to revere at the moment, but at least we have our TV presidents to look up to!

How well you know your TV presidents? Wonder no more and check out this quiz. I personally do not know my TV presidents because I got a 4/10 on the quiz, but maybe you'll do better. Maybe.

family guy bill clintonIt's the TV Squad Presidents' Day Blow Out Sale! Everything must go! We've got a warehouse full of lava lampshades, knee whitening kits, puppy dehydrators, hand-knitted welding masks, helium-powered baby goggles, and aisle after aisle of Mrs. Picklebutton's Homemade Mayonnaise-Flavored Waffle Syrup. Did I mention free giraffe rides for senior citizens? 

Anyway, I listed five of my favorite television appearances by presidents in puppet or animated form. Hail to the chief and all that. If you think of others, please share. Taft would have wanted it that way.
