Was the one where Will Ferrell was a doctor telling a couple he lost their baby a 1255 sketch?

No, it was in the middle of the show

What was the 1255 sketch?

An old woman was on her deathbed, and her final words to her son(?) were the lyrics to Nickelback's How You Remind Me... and then things went crazy from there

Looks like you're right!

As a qualifier, it has to be the last thing before the credits, thereby happening after the second musical number. That sadly means I can't use the ridiculous Jackie Chan sketch about a bunch of guys independently burrowing into the center of the Earth at the same time.

Was the first appearance of Stefon (a sketch where he and Ben Affleck were brothers, before he ever appeared on Weekend Update) a 12:55 sketch? It seems like it should have been.

Nah, that one was fairly early in the show. Definitely one of my favorite sketches in the last decade, though.

Oh, right. I had completely forgotten the name of the product. As penance i submit that Brian Fellow's Safari Planet first aired as a 12:55 skit, after the character was introduced during a weekend update.

Also, would you count the entire cast singing So Long, Farewell as a goodbye to Phil Hartman?

Me too. But NBC sucks, so there isn’t much old SNL content on Youtube. Much of it can be found on their own site. But even then, some is missing. I found the Monster Trucks and Funny Cars clip on a Facebook page.

Here's a couple off the Yahoo site, which unfortunately means a bunch of ads:

Outrageous Clown Squad. This was a parody of that ICP "Miracles" video that kind of had to be the final sketch because few people would get the reference.

MacGruber was a runner, and the first Roxbury sketch wasn’t Carrey, it was on the Phil Hartman/Gin Blossoms episode a couple months earlier. It aired right before WU

You just kind of blew my drat mind here. I haven't missed many SNL's since the early 90's and I don't remember that first Roxbury sketch. I always thought the Jim Carrey ep was the first appearance.

It's been brought to my attention that the Steve Martin/Bill Murray "What the hell is that?!" sketch was a 12:55. That's like the founding father of 12:55 weirdness.

I got a few good ones for ya.

Seth MacFarlane in 2012, woodenspoons.com. Fat snake with a sex penis and the river what took my son.

Blue Jean Committee, Jason Segal in 2012.

Goodnight Saigon. Will Ferrell May of 2009.

Lonely Islands Sloths! Forrest Whitaker episode of February 2007.

My personal favorite. Jack Black's happy birthday song. January of 2002.

Oh! And Forte’s Spelling Bee from Black’s 2005 episode. Technically, the last segment of the night was Neil Young’s second song, but that was a technical necessity, so everyone would have time to get downstairs to the skating rink for the goodnights. It is definitely the spirit of 12:55 though

I feel like I've got enough ammo, but are there any good 80's 12:55 sketches worth talking about? All I really have is the original Wayne's World, which, by the way, features a couple of jokes that would absolutely not swing these days.

There's actually a good AVclub article written in 2013 that has a good list of 10 to 1 sketches. They specifically mention several 80's sketches.
