Forever Sheneneh, Ms. Trinidad, And Chilligan’s Island: The Funniest Moments From “Martin”

July 22, 2013 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines

If you ask me, Martin is by far my favorite television show from the ’90s. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t laugh at syndicated old episodes and who can’t name at least one line they’ve taken from the show over the years (“Call me, almond!”). After watching my season one DVD I decided that I wanted to share some of my favorite episodes and moments from the series with you, and you could share yours too. Shall we?

“Romantic Weekend,” aka, Chilligan’s Island

Season 3: 1995

It was supposed to be a simple vacation, but when you plan a vacation off of the back of a cereal box, things never end up going right. After being jealous of Tommy and Pam’s upcoming trip to what is supposed to be a fancy resort, Martin plans a vacation of his own for Gina to “Chilligan’s Island” in order to one-up Tommy and calm Gina. In the end,  Martin and Gina would end up boxing a huge rat that Gina confuses for a puppy and run into Tommy and Pam at the bootleg resort in most hilarious fashion. Was anyone else in tears when Martin was straight punching the stuffed rat dead in the face?

  • pickneychile

    Chilligan’s Island is one of my favs but you need to add the 2 part wedding episode and the Thanksgiving cook off episode!

    I love the episode where Martin and Gina are stuck in the bus station during Christmas and they ask the attendant for change so that they can get hot chocolate. The episode was called holiday blues.

  • Jell

    My favorite episode is when someone stole Martin’s walkman and he called everyone over and threatened them with a stuffed German Shepard dog. I still crack up every time I see that episode.

  • Preshest

    You named pretty much ALL of my faves. I also wanna add the Variety Show where Martin slapped Tommy with the sandwich b/c it had tomatoes on it and Gina sang “you got to push… you got to push it til you get it right.” Also “Arms Are For Hugging” where they go on the marriage retreat and Martin and Gina get put in the angry corner, “Martin, baby, I think your radio show suuuuuucks…” And “Holiday Blues” when Martin fights Ms. Jerrie at the train station lol.

  • ron thegentleman

    Old Otis is one of my favorite characters, I need Netflix to get MARTIN

  • kierah

    I also like the episode when Martin and HustleMan try to sell t-shirts at a Whitney Houston concert – only the T-shirts say WHITTY HUTTON and the pic is HustleMan in a wig!

  • sammi_lu

    #1Chilligan’s Island, #2Tommy Hitman Hearns episode, #new jack city episode…but on every episode the digs Martin and Pam throw back and forth at each other are what made the show.

  • Guest

    What about when MARTIN ran away to find himself @ that cult retreat? Half his head was braided, & the othe half was an afro! Sometimes I’d rather watch that, than any of the garbage on!

  • Stacy L

    what about the Thanksgiving episode when Momma Payne and Gina have the cookoff!! *I say, pass the peas like we USED to do, HEYYYYYYYYYYYY*

    • Stacy L

      OR the one when Martin doesn’t pay his rent, and Hustle Man tries to sell him those pigeons on a branch, lol.. actually– I could go on for DAYS abt this show.. every episode is funny!!

  • Yvonne Watkins

    KC and Jo Jo with Martin singing nick nack paddy wack give a dog a bone KC and Jo Jo style!

    • Man, Marty Mar came out like “K-CI, JO JO!!” lol and when Tommy Davidson sang that song in Martin studio and both of them kept laughing about the catfish pond…I love every episode except the final one cuz I was sad it was over:(

  • AncientSpiritNewDay

    I’m not clicking through all of those pages. The funniest episode of Martin is ‘No justice No Peace’. The courtroom scene still has me rolling and screaming with laughter. Hilarious!!

    • Preshest

      Yaaaaaassssssss. “My mommy said…she’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes. She’ll be coming round the mountain when she…**barks**” LMBO!!! and “Beetie Bead, show the judge ONE shoe…”

      • AncientSpiritNewDay

        LOOOOOOOOOL Martin is something else……truly funny man….

    • Jell

      LOL!!! That was one of my favorite episodes! I love when Martin looked thru Tommy’s adress book and asked what GTD meant. Tommy tried to mumble what is was, but Martin made him actually say he Got The Draws and the whole court went wild. Too funny.

      • AncientSpiritNewDay

        LOOOOOOOOL oh my goodness yes!!! That part is hilarious……

  • Kenedy

    Wasn’t there an episode where Martin & Shenenah were supposed to get married or something like that? & then Martin got cold feet & ran off & then Shenanah turned into Godzilla & started biting off the wood off the church benches, Lol!

    • Kenedy

      Actually nevermind, I think it was Martin & Gina getting married, but Martin’s mom (played by Martin ofcourse) went haywire & started chomping off church benches

    • Guest

      LOL Nah, that never happened.

      • Kenedy

        Lol! I swear I didn’t imagine it!! Haha, I’ll look it up

      • Kenedy

        The episode called “Wedding Bell blues” I guess they eloped or something, but somebody was chomping of church benches!!

    The plumber episode w/ Tommy preaching.”Say it for me 4xs, creep creep creep creep.” The one where Martin and Pam gang up on Gina’s friend (Merrin Dungy) and they play her on his show. My other faves are on the list.

  • Realityh03$Anonymous….ohwait

    How about the Christmas episode when Big Red had the studio on lock down? Or the talent show when Sheneneh and Keylolo did their song? OR the one when Tony Cox and all his friends beat up Martin, Cole, & Tommy? OR the one when Cole was the house guest who NEEDED to leave and was clippin his toe nails and hit Gina in the forehead? When Gina killed Momma Payne’s bird? I think i added enough for a part two, lol..

    • dee17

      That Sheneneh and Keylolo song “Ain’t nobody know me like my homie” is one of the funniest things ever.

    • Deena

      the Christmas show was funny and when CeCe and BeBe sung and Tommy told the robber that he had to go to work and the robber told Tommy you probably dont even have a job!!!!! that was funny ,too.
