The character from the 'Saturday Night Live' "Celebrity Jeopardy" skit is played by Norm Macdonald.

A contestant on Wednesday's episode of Jeopardy! brought the game show's Saturday Night Live spoof to life.

During the final round, on Oscar-nominated songs, host Alex Trebek asked the three players to name the song "from a 1999 animated film about censorship."

Contestant Talia, who had banked $600 at that point, submitted an answer that referenced SNL's "Celebrity Jeopardy" character played by Norm Macdonald.

"What is the love ballad of Turd Ferguson. PS Hi Mom :)" she wrote, receiving a few chuckles and a "No, sorry," from Trebek after he read her answer aloud.

Macdonald, who portrays Burt Reynolds in the skit, refers to himself as "Turd Ferguson."
