Remembering Phil Hartman - "Colon Blow"

May 28, 1998 marks the anniversary of the tragic death of Phil Hartman. I was watching CBS Sunday Morning today and caught a glimpse of a skit Phil performed on Saturday Night Live, a fake ad for a cereal named Colon Blow. Thanks to the folks at Hulu, here is that skit.

Summer is almost upon us and "Disney Girls" reminds me of my youth and simpler times. The first version is performed by its creator, Bruce Johnson. The second is by Art Garfunkel and the third is by "Mama" Cass Elliot
