Over eight seasons and 200 episodes, That ’70s Show didn’t just launch the careers of Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, Topher Grace, Danny Masterson, Wilmer Valderrama, and Ashton Kutcher. It also basked in the glow of already-established stars and stars on the rise who often made brief but memorable cameos. Check out some of the show’s memorable guest stars below, and flashback with That ’70s Show Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

1. Alice Cooper

Many guests have sat down in That ’70s Show‘s “circle” for a hang. In season three’s “Radio Daze” episode, heavy-metal/eye-liner icon Alice Cooper shows up during a game of D&D to say, “Let’s get out there and slay that dragon.”


2. Amy Adams

One of Adams’ earliest roles was on a season two episode of That ’70s Show where she played Kat Peterson, “the most popular girl in school,” who — against the odds — is making out with Hyde. Or as he puts it, “She’s slumming it. I’m loving it.”


3. Billy Dee Williams

Donna and Eric get couples therapy from Pastor Dan (Williams), partly because Eric is too obsessed with Star Wars. Well, “it’s the greatest movie of all time,” says Lando Calrissian himself.


4. Bruce Willis

Talk about weird. Demi Moore’s former husband (sporting a bad wig and a worse mustache) appears in a scene with Demi Moore’s then-boyfriend (Ashton Kutcher) to talk about getting girls pregnant and not wearing wedding rings. Yikes.


5. Don Knotts

Reprising his iconic role from Three’s Company, Knotts plays an eavesdropping landlord who thinks Fez and Jackie are going at it when they’re just making fruit salad.


6. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

He’s not the Rock this time — he’s Rocky Johnson, a low-rent, side-burned wrestler who wears a black leotard and pile-drives midgets in the ring in the season one episode “That Wrestling Show.” Eric’s a huge fan, but it’s Red (Kurtwood Smith) who ends up getting Rocky’s autograph.


7. Isaac Hayes

Famed musician and future South Park chef Isaac Hayes stopped by during season eight to provide the funky “Work Fez” theme and let everyone’s favorite foreign exchange student dance out his own personal Saturday Night Fever fantasy.


8. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Before he kissed Zooey Deschanel in (500) Days of Summer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt locked lips with Topher Grace on That ’70s Show. Too bad Eric wasn’t into it. They would’ve made the cutest couple.


9. Lindsay Lohan

Sometime between Freaky Friday and her career meltdown, Lindsay Lohan filmed this season seven guest spot during which she portrayed Danielle, the love interest of both Fez and Kelso.


10. Gloria Gaynor

Who said that those who can’t teach? Clearly they didn’t know Mrs. Clark, Fez’s music teacher, who belts out Gaynor’s own double-platinum hit “I Will Survive” at the prom as a little pick-me-up.

Holiday Extra Special

Make The Holidays ’80s Again

Enjoy the holiday cheer Wednesday December 21 at 10P on IFC.

Whatever happened to the kind of crazy-yet-cozy holiday specials that blanketed the early winter airwaves of the 1980s? Unceremoniously killed by infectious ’90s jadedness? Slow fade out at the hands of early-onset millennial ennui? Whatever the reason, nixing the tradition was a huge mistake.

A huge mistake that we’re about to fix.

Announcing IFC’s Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special, starring Tony Hale. It’s a celeb-studded extravaganza in the glorious tradition of yesteryear featuring Bridget Everett, Jo Firestone, Nick Thune, Jen Kirkman, house band The Dap-Kings, and many more. And it’s at Joe’s Pub, everyone’s favorite home away from home in the Big Apple.

The yuletide cheer explodes Wednesday December 21 at 10P. But if you were born after 1989 and have no idea what void this spectacular special is going to fill, sample from this vintage selection of holiday hits:

Andy Williams and The NBC Kids Search For Santa

The quintessential holiday special. Get snuggly and turn off your brain. You won’t need it.

A Muppet Family Christmas

The Fraggles. The Muppets. The Sesame Street gang. Fate. The Jim Henson multiverse merges in this warm and fuzzy Holiday gathering.

Julie Andrews: The Sound Of Christmas

To this day a foolproof antidote to holiday cynicism. It’s cheesy, but a good cheese. In this case an Alpine Gruyère.

Star Wars Holiday Special

Okay, busted. This one was released in 1978. Still totally ’80s though. And yes that’s Bea Arthur.

Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special

Pass the eggnog, and make sure it’s loaded. This special is everything you’d expect it to be and much, much more.

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special premieres Wednesday December 21 at 10P on IFC.

It Ain't Over Yet

A Guide to Coping with the End of Comedy Bang! Bang!

Watch the final episodes tonight at 11 and 11:30P on IFC.

Posted by on

After five seasons and 110 halved-hour episodes, Scott Aukerman’s hipster comedy opus, Comedy Bang! Bang!, has come to an end. Fridays at 11 and 11:30P will never be the same. We know it can be hard for fans to adjust after the series finale of their favorite TV show. That’s why we’ve prepared this step-by-step guide to managing your grief.

Step One: Cry it out

It’s just natural. We’re sad too.

Step Two: Read the CB!B! IMDB Trivia Page

The show is over and it feels like you’ve lost a friend. But how well did you really know this friend? Head over to Comedy Bang! Bang!’s IMDB page to find out some things you may not have known…like that it’s “based on a Civil War battle of the same name” or that “Reggie Watts was actually born with the name Theodore Leopold The Third.”

Step Three: Listen to the podcast

One fascinating piece of CB!B! trivia that you might not learn from IMDB is that there’s a podcast that shares the same name as the TV show. It’s even hosted by Scott Aukerman! It’s not exactly like watching the TV show on a Friday night, but that’s only because each episode is released Monday morning. If you close your eyes, the podcast is just like watching the show with your eyes closed!

Step Four: Watch brand new CB!B! clips?!

The best way to cope with the end of Comedy Bang! Bang! is to completely ignore that it’s over — because it’s not. In an unprecedented move, IFC is opening up the bonus CB!B! content vault. There are four brand new, never-before-seen sketches featuring Scott Aukerman, Kid Cudi, and “Weird Al” Yankovic ready for you to view on the IFC App. There’s also one right here, below this paragraph! Watch all four b-b-bonus clips and feel better.

Binge the entire final season, plus exclusive sketches, right now on the IFC app.

Everybody Sweats Now

The Four-Day Sweatsgiving Weekend On IFC

Posted by on

This long holiday weekend is your time to gobble gobble gobble and give heartfelt thanks—thanks for the comfort and forgiveness of sweatpants. Because when it comes right down to it, there’s nothing more wholesome and American than stuffing yourself stupid and spending endless hours in front of the TV in your softest of softests.

So get the sweats, grab the remote and join IFC for four perfect days of entertainment.

sweatsgiving
It all starts with a 24-hour T-day marathon of Rocky Horror Picture Show, then continues Friday with an all-day binge of Stan Against Evil.

By Saturday, the couch will have molded to your shape. Which is good, because you’ll be nestled in for back-to-back Die Hard and Lethal Weapon.

Finally, come Sunday it’s time to put the sweat back in your sweatpants with The Shining, The Exorcist, The Chronicles of Riddick, Terminator 2, and Blade: Trinity. They totally count as cardio.

As if you need more convincing, here’s Martha Wash and the IFC&C Music Factory to hammer the point home.

The Sweatsgiving Weekend starts Thursday on IFC
