Due to music clearance issues, some of the episodes on the DVD sets of the show are edited. Some sketches simply have music replacements, while a few sketches had to be trimmed to exclude certain musical performances by the cast (such as Andrea Martin as Edith Prickley singing a line from "Whistle While You Work" in a sketch, or Catherine O'Hara as Dusty Towne and Rick Moranis as Merv Griffin having to cut out various songs they perform in their sketches). As of Volume 3, none of the actual guest musical performances have had to be cut. As of Volume 3, the only full sketch to be cut is "Stairways to Heaven;" A Compilation Album of various artists performing "Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zeppelin refused clearance of their song.

A must-see pioneering program for fans of sketch comedy
Thanks in large part to Comedy Central, sketch comedy is all over the place now. SCTV's influence can be seen in many of these new shows. Look at the cast -- just about all these talented actors have become household names and legends in the world of comedy. Their second to last season was their best; at that point, the writing was simply amazing and the ensemble work of the cast was at its best. Every character the many-faced actors came up with was hilarious and strangely believable.
