Coneheads



Back when Saturday Night Live was still watchable, there was a running sketch featuring the Coneheads. The Coneheads are a family of three “from France” with cone-shaped heads. The concept was developed by Dan Akryod (from Ghostbusters). The idea came to him when he was doing drugs and thought it would be funny if the people on TV had heads so tall they went off the edge of the screen. Unfortunately for Dan, the show was shot so the at-home-audience could see the tops of the cones.
