About This Quiz

Since first hitting the small screen in 1975, "Saturday Night Live" has become a late-night comedy institution. It's produced some of the most memorable comedic characters of all time, many of whom have gone on to star in their own successful (and not so successful — anyone remembers "Stuart Saves His Family?") feature films. And while some of the country's biggest celebrities have hosted SNL week after week, it's the show's wacky cast of recurring characters — from Wayne Campbell and Stefon Meyers to the Spartan Cheerleaders and the Target Lady —  that have kept us tuning in for more than four decades.

Sure, they’re hysterically funny, but perhaps another reason why we love these characters so much is that we can see a bit of ourselves in them. How many times have you headbanged to your favorite song while cruising in your car? Or felt overly enthusiastic about an item on your Target shopping list? And let's face it — we've probably all felt the need for more cowbell at least once or twice in our lives.
