As the world mourns the passing of actor and comic legend Robin Williams, his best scenes are being replayed on computer and TV screens everywhere.

A hidden gem is his February 11, 1984 "Saturday Night Live" appearance -- his first hosting gig for the show -- which happened shortly after he became a first-time dad.

A minute and a half into his monologue, Williams exclaimed, "Ladies and gentlemen, the best news for me ... is that I am a father!"

He went on to joke about celebrity parenting, breastfeeding, and, of course, a superhero called "Father Man."
