In this precursor to the syndicated TV show Mad Movies With the L.A. Connection, a vintage episode of The Cisco Kid is completely redubbed with voices provided by SCTV writers Martin Short (soon to become an on-camera regular), Steven Kampmann, Peter Torokvei, and Don Dickinson. Also seen on this final broadcast of SCTV's third season are promos for "Neil Jung Psychiatrist," with Neil (Rick Moranis) analyzing Tony Orlando (Tony Rosato), and "Marlon Perkins' Wildlife Dinner Restaurant." And while still exiled from the SCTV building, "Kanadian Korner" hosts Bob and Doug McKenzie (Moranis, Dave Thomas) begin building their own studio. Although never syndicated in complete form in the U.S., this episode appeared in fragmented fashion on NBC's SCTV: Network 90.
