The Coneheads sketches that aired in the first years of Saturday Night Live were classic. Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman played a family that only wanted to fit into the suburbs ... notwithstanding the fact they were aliens.
Somehow, I did not know that there were plans, or at least hopes, to turn the Coneheads into a series in its own right. Rankin Bass produced the pilot below in 1983, and when it didn't find a buyer, it went to air as a special.
That was not the end of the Coneheads, of course; a decade later, Aykroyd and Curtin reprised their roles, with Newman playing another part, in a feature film. It bombed, however, which is a pity for those who like things in mass quantities.
