Check out this classic Eddie Murphy sketch about Christmas in a rough neighborhood Youtube/Saturday Night Live

It’s Christmas in Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood. You read that right: it’s not Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood — it’s the wrong neighborhood.

Christmas is a special time in Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood! It’s a time for giving. And look what Mr. Landlord gave me, an eviction notice. That’s why Mr. Robinson needs to wear this Santa Claus suit to sneak in and out of his building.

Eddie Murphy stars as Mr. Robinson, a cynical black character who lives in a dilapidated urban row house, has a criminal record and supports his tangibly miserable life and depicted drug use with a series of scams and crimes. Just wait for the word of the day!
