HBO Hands Over Saturday to '80s and '90s Comedy

HBO Hands Over Saturday to '80s and '90s Comedy

Calling all Coneheads fans and folks who thought Buffy was funny even before she got a regular TV series: HBO has a movie lineup just for you. Starting bright and early tomorrow, the network is declaring a Classic Comedy Day, airing a half-dozen movies from the late '80s and early '90s back-to-back.

The day kicks off with Coneheads at 6:30 a.m. EDT and PDT then stops through the likes of The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! and Weekend at Bernie's before finally wrapping up with Mrs. Doubtfire at 5:45 p.m.

Of the six, I think I'm most excited about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which airs at 10:30 a.m. and which I haven't seen since some junior high-era sleepover. Don't worry, I have no illusions that it's good — I just can't wait to see if I still remember any of the best lines (and cheers). Any of these hold a special place in your heart? To see the full schedule, just


6:30 a.m. — Coneheads
10:30 a.m. — Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Noon — The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!
2 p.m. — Parenthood
4 p.m. — Weekend at Bernie's
5:45 p.m. — Mrs. Doubtfire

i love 'buffy the vampire slayer'. i have to admit that i actually have it on dvd. :) ok, so it's not the best movie in the world, but that's what makes it so much fun to watch!

Plus then also, the Pee Wee Herman dying scene during the credits. Not that I'm a fan of the movie or anything...

Ohh, I have nomination for best Buffy line: "What's your name?" "Pike." "Pike's not a name, it's a fish." OR! When they're talking about prom themes and Hillary Swank's character (I know right?) says, "Yeah. I hate bugs." OK, I guess you have to watch it. :)
