Beldar Conehead, "Saturday Night Live" (1977): So, uh, what's with that head? "We're from France." That was good enough for most of the casually curious back in 1977-79 when Beldar Conehead (Dan Aykroyd) and his brood from the planet Remulak tossed their senso-rings at "Saturday Night Live" viewers. After "Close Encounters" and "Star Wars," that audience felt the power of the farce -- and looking back there's something about Beldar's beer gut and hapless plots that made him the Homer Simpson of the Jimmy Carter era.
