|The picture shows a view of this Old Mr. Bill & Spot Saturday Night Live Character Painted Metal Pin. The pin is not marked or dated but believed to be from the late 1970s or early 1980s. The pin is white with green, red, blue orange, yellow, and black paint. It is of Mr. Bill the clay animation character being bitten by his dog Spot. It is marked as follows:|
The pin measures about 1-1/8'' tall. It is in near mint condition as pictured. Below here is some biography information on Mr. Bill:
''From his humble Super 8 beginnings that smashed him upon TV screeens nationwide on "Saturday Night Live," to the unique spot he now occupies in the nation's consciousness, Mr. Bill has, in 25 short years, become a legend. Like other great entertainers of the modern age, he's done it all: network, cable, movies, home videos, music videos, nightclubs, a best-selling book, college lecture circuit, tribute at the Smithsonian, Letterman...''
''Was it really 25 years ago that Mr. Bill was born? Oh, Nooooooo! Fresh from the can, he got his big break via "Saturday Night Live's" home movie contest. Submitted as a parody of bad animation, he took the prize and, with creator Walter Williams, went on to spend seven years at SNL, a period in which his role on the show grew to 10 appearances a season. A 15th Anniversary USA Today survey found Mr. Bill's popularity among SNL's characters excelled only by the late John Belushi and Gilda Radner, and he is still the character with the most appearances. Mr. Bill left in 1980 with creator Lorne Michaels and the original cast.''
