    Alternate Universe

    SNL writers played with the concept for years. The cast and crew had 14 individual test skits before hitting on the concept that would eventually storm the nation with mad cap science fiction whimmsey. Above is a photo of an early test skit with that week's guest host, Ralph Nader. The working title was the Flour Sack Head Kids Drive Wacky Cars. Below you can see the movie poster made for the well tooled and polished skit that appeared on SNL for 4 years prior to the movie and after 5 years of development.
