The Land of Gorch sketches on Saturday Night Live were performed live and filmed in front of a live audience by the show's traditional camera crew. As a result, several puppeteering gaffs were captured and broadcast.
|October 11, 1975||George Carlin||Two mistakes occur during the sketch. The first occurs when Queen Peuta walks offscreen; the camera cuts, and she is seen being pulled down while still in frame. The second mistake happens when Vazh hands Ploobis his food, when her sleeve gets caught on Ploobis' arm. Ploobis exclaims, "Let go of it, would you?" Later, after Vazh falls to the ground, it is believed that the puppeteer was the one who fell down, and that Ploobis' line, "Excuse me, ma'am," was actually Jim Henson apologizing to Hansome.|
