I remember watching his Christmas specials when I was very young. That was one laid-back guy! There was a sketch on SNL (I think) where someone portraying him (Hartman?) lounged on a couch half asleep while singing & doing the Christmas thing. I had no idea that he sang "Hot Diggety." That's some up-tempo stuff, there!

Actually, sheep, I think you might be thinking of SCTV. According to The SCTV Guide, he was played by Eugene Levy.

So, we have a #1 and a #2. Who's going to complete the triad?
