As biography writers dig into their book of unconfirmed facts to pen obits about the elusive dictator Kim Jung-il today, following his death from a heart attack, here at PopWatch, we’re watching Team America.
The North Korean dictator’s contribution to pop culture might be a small one (and, to be clear, we’re okay with that) but — at least, most of the time — hilarious. So enjoy these bits from his “appearance” in Team America, “The Kim Jong-il Show” from MADtv, and if you can find a clip of Amy Poehler doing her impression on SNL, share with the rest of the class.

Oh! Don’t forget “Johnny Mountain” from 30 Rock.
