Eddie Murphy as Mr. Robinson

Memorable Quote: "Hello, boys and girls! We all alone today. You know why? My wife walked out on me! Isn't that nice? I'm so glad the bitch is gone!"

Picture Mr. Rogers in the ghetto and you have this gritty, and hilarious, sketch featuring the best: Eddie Murphy. He taught slang, he sang about wanting to be your neighbor (because he wanted to move to your neighborhood and out of his crappy slums) and was still really, really encouraging. Murphy's spoof on Mr. Rogers, regardless of his dodgy neighborhood, never lost that Mr. Rogers' "everything is safe as long as we're in our sweater" feeling.
