Chris Kattan Brought His Old 'SNL' Characters to Seth Meyers' 'Late Night,' and They're Still Awful

I have no idea what kind of person might be interested in this, but I’m sure there must be someone who came of age in the 90s who has always had a weird, inexplicably affection for Chris Kattan and his terrible characters in what is literally the worst era of Saturday Night Live ever (literally, 80 percent of the worst episodes in SNL’s run were from 1996 to 2003, which are the exact years that Chris Kattan worked on the show).

Anyway, Seth Meyers is the new Adam Sandler, which is to say, he’s the guy who keeps his old SNL pals employed, even as the rest of the entertainment industry has given up on them. (Kattan’s biggest gig otherwise was as a cast contestant who was eliminated 1st in episode 2 of Guy Fieri’s Celebrity Cook-off).

Anyway, if you have a hankering to see Mr. Peepers or Mango (who are not the same character, no matter how much your brain insists otherwise), speed ahead to the 3:30 mark.

    You clearly have a personal gripe about Kattan being talented. And you might want to make sure what your saying is accurate because it's not He last appeared on How I Met Your Mother. Twice.

  • Jonas

    Same era as Will Ferrell was the worst? I think your an idiot.

  • stella

    Huh. I totally forgot about chris kattan...

  • cruzzercruz

    Yeah, I wouldn't say that anything is the worst based on IMDB ratings. That site is just where every asshole on the Internet goes to spam the ratings system for cult movies, attack things that moderately offend them, and be general dicks. Yeah, awful movies tend to sink and (mostly) great ones get high ratings, but it isn't a system to be trusted.

    The 90s era SNL had a lot of good episodes, and definitely is nowhere near as abysmal as the Lorne Michaels-less stretch in the 80s.

  • Andrew

    Wow, you're right. My brain was thinking that Mr. Peepers and Mango were the same character.

    Of course my brain hasn't thought of those two since the nineties, so thanks a fucking lot!

  • Wrestling Fan

    ....I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that I don't think Dustin cares much for the artistic stylings of Chris Kattan.

    Shut up Mango was awesome

  • But what usually made Mango great was how the male host that week interacted with him which is not what we get here. Also, it seems dated and somewhat homophobic now.
