Weekend Update: Scrooge McDuck





In a very negative review, Andy's Scrooge performance receives one of the few positive comments:

...best of all, Samberg as Scrooge McDuck. Maybe it’s just because I’m an unabashed Scrooge McDuck fan and The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck is a masterpiece, but I thought this was pretty awesome...

======================

I think this was the Andy highlight of the episode. I was disappointed with the digital short.



We had no Andy Samberg digital short this week, and the Drew Barrymore and Fred Armisen short was kind of a flop. (Great concept, but it had no legs; it was too repetitive.)

(While I think Fred is funny, I would prefer it if they stopped letting him write and star in digital shorts. If he wants to be in digital shorts, I think he should collaborate with Andy instead. Sort of like their Party Guys one, but they could do better than that.)

What do you think?

Yeah, I think Andy could work on his Scottish accent a little more, but other than that, it was a great way to bust out Scrooge McDuck and to put Scrooge up there in Andy's wacky impressions that include the Swedish Chef (Muppets), Cathy (comics), and now Scrooge McDuck!

The Swedish Chef spawned two full Muppet skits and Cathy spawned a full comic skit and a bigger Cathy ensemble (with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel jumping in).

Will Andy's Scrooge McDuck spawn a Duck Tales sketch or a Disney sketch? Time will tell!



Andy also has a little competition from Bobby Moynihan, who isn't afraid of busting out the cartoon and odd characters himself. He did a bad Garfield impression, but he nailed a Cats (musical) impression and a Snagglepuss impression. Plus Bobby has been talking about doing a Hamburglar (do it Bobby!).


Enjoy!

Andy was hilarious as Scrooge McDuck from Duck Tales, reminded me of when I was little, loved that show. Love to see Andy play Scrooge again. Bobby should definitely play the hamburglar! Agree the digital short was a huge disappointment last week, sure it was a little funny, had some laughs, but it wasn't worth it to be a short, a commercial would have suited it better, they could have done better with Drew Barrymore she's amazing. Fred should have collaborate with Andy like you said.

Thanks Tisha!

I would love to see Andy's Scrooge bit turn into a full DuckTales or Mickey Mouse skit with all the characters. =^)
