Mango (Saturday Night Live)
- For other meanings of "Mango", see Mango (disambiguation)
Mango was a character created and performed by Chris Kattan on the American sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live. Mango was an off-the-wall character who was sexually ambiguous (but ultimately male). He would always wear a spangled beret and extremely tight, short-shorts.
The concept was that Mango's sexual appeal was irresistible to anyone of either gender. The sketches would usually revolve around Mango being backstage at one of Mango's "shows" (which were never defined but likely burlesque in nature). The celebrity would then become obsessed with Mango, wanting to woo and make love to him, but Mango would resist until the celebrity was driven insane. Mango was shown in one skit to have a wife and child, and always ended his skits by telling his admirer, "You can't have-a de Mango!"
Though the character lasted for several years, it was never popular enough to spawn a feature film or any major catch phrases.
