CONSPIRACY THEORY ROCK: Banned Segment from SNL

Robert Smigel

The 1998 Robert Smigel animated short film CONSPIRACY THEORY ROCK, part of a March 1998 TV FUNHOUSE segment, has been removed from all subsequent airings of the SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE episode where it originally appeared.

Michaels claimed the edit was done because it “wasn’t funny.” The film is a scathing critique of corporate media ownership, including NBC’s ownership by General Electric/Westinghouse.
