Dooneese (played by Kristen Wiig) is one of the Maharelle Sister from Finger Lakes, who performed on THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW, a popular musical program whose reruns aired on the PBS Network. The Maharelle Sisters were a parody of the Lennon Sisters (Dianne, Peggy, Kathy, and Janet) who frequently appeared on the show.

Unlike her other sisters, Dooneese is not the most attractive gal in the group. She sports a protruding canine tooth, a very large forehead, and tiny hands the size of an infants.

When it comes time for the sisters to perform on stage, each sister takes their turn singing, with Dooneese singing last. While her sisters are always very lady like, Dooneese often makes sexual advances toward any men on the stage.

Dooneese also appeared in a musical remake of THE SOUND OF MUSIC where she appeared as a member of the Von Trapp Family.

Played by comedian Kristen Wiig, Dooneese was a recurring character on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE from 2008-2013. Her catchphrases were: “Is that bad?” and “And I’m Dooneese.”
