SNL’s Land Octopus sketches never proved as popular.

    I liked the sequel where he fought Ssssss.

    I finally saw this one or at least tried to sit through it, not exactly Marx brothers. I didn’t realize the gag about everyone being a member of a different crime/spy fighting agency was so old.

    So may I ask, what was the title of this movie? ‘Sssssshhhh! The Octopus!’ but I’m not sure I’ve got the right number of ‘s’s or the punctuation right!

    Ssssss- I just call it ‘The Snake Movie With Dirk Benedict…’

  • Ken_Begg

    Actually, it’s just Sh! The Octopus.

  • Gamera977

    Ahh, so that’s why I couldn’t find it on IMDB- too many ‘S’s!

  • Rock Baker

    Didn’t this one make MOTD some while back? It may have been a different photo, but still…..

  • Ken_Begg

    Possibly. I’m shooting for a 1% duplicate rate, which I believe I’m safely under.

  • Rock Baker

    True, of all these posts (allowing for the few weeks I missed when the computer died last year), I can think of only two repeats, and that includes this one!

  • Eric Hinkle

    Looks more like they’re saying “Oh, sh**, an octopus!”

  • Flangepart

    Funny, to me it looks more rubber snake than rubber octopus, but hey…

    I am proud to have shown this at T Fest in Texas.
