SNL (Andy Samberg) does Disney's Scrooge McDuck

SNL 10/10/09 - Drew Barrymore and Regina Spektor

Weekend Update: Scrooge McDuck

In a very negative review of that SNL episode, Andy's Scrooge performance receives one of the few positive comments: of all, Samberg as Scrooge McDuck. Maybe it’s just because I’m an unabashed Scrooge McDuck fan and The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck is a masterpiece, but I thought this was pretty awesome...


Yeah, I think Andy could work on his Scottish accent a little more, but other than that, it was a great way to bust out Scrooge McDuck and to put Scrooge up there in Andy's wacky impressions that include the Swedish Chef (Muppets), Cathy (comics), and now Scrooge McDuck!

The Swedish Chef spawned two full Muppet skits and Cathy spawned a full comic skit and a bigger Cathy ensemble (with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel jumping in).

Will Andy's Scrooge McDuck spawn a Duck Tales sketch or a Disney sketch? Time will tell!

Andy also has a little competition from Bobby Moynihan, who isn't afraid of busting out the cartoon and odd characters himself. He did a bad Garfield impression, but he nailed a Cats (musical) impression, Cogsworth (from Beauty and the Beast), and a Snagglepuss impression. Plus Bobby has been talking about doing a Hamburglar (do it Bobby!).
