A Polka Mockumentary: The Shmenge Brothers

Did you ever watch Saturday Night Live in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s? If so, then you are probably familiar with SCTV too. A set of characters from SCTV that I wasn’t aware of are the Shmenge Brothers, but thanks to my friend Aren (who is not from Leutonia), I’ve now seen the entire mockumentary. If you’re like me and Strange Brew is one of your favorite B-rate movies then you’ll probably enjoy this too, even though it’s quite a bit slower, but does have some good subtle humor in there.

Some Shmenge one liners I liked:

  • “We didn’t have much, just music and cabbages”
  • “The military needed jars”
  • “Three microphones for three lovely ladies; the Lemon Twins”
  • “How long can you sit around and do nothing? You get itchy to work and make the money”

The entire set of videos:
