Welcome to the Fun Zone (1984)

Dr. Demento hosts three other hosts who host Welcome to the Fun Zone, originally aired in the SNL time slot.  The show peaks early with the best of Dr. Demento, which is of course Weird Al.  John Candy and John Carradine are in a weird horror parody short film which feels like it was unfinished footage of an abandoned project.  There's a perverted version of MST3K doing It Conquered the World, and various other novelty comedy acts.  Also with Santana playing with Booker T and the MGs playing with the Fabulous Thunderbirds.  None of it is funny, but it's a time capsule for this kind of thing.  Dr. Demento is wisely almost completely absent.
