Episode Summary

EDIT
The main plot for this episode is unknown, but it featured a Panasonic radio as a prize for one of the phone-in competitions, as most of the episodes from this 1979 season. This episode also featured a segment on baton twirling. The episode contains the well-known scene where Ross (before a major costume revamp) teaches Jono Gebert how to do a weather forecast on an actual CJOH news/weather set.moreless

      • The opening animation is completely different from the 1981 and the 1982-90 intros. It features the Parliament Buildings instead of " The Children's Television Sausage Factory" and ends with a pastel shot of Les before being stamped with You Can't Do That on Television.

      • Special Note about the Season 1 episodes:

        Episodes from this season were one hour long and in a variety show format, as opposed to the 30-minute pre-taped sketch format of seasons 2-10. Also, these episodes were aired live and never re-run, thus info on the plot of many season 1 episodes is unavailable. The masters of the season 1 episodes have long since been destroyed by CJOH productions, and VCRs were not common in 1979, so it looks as if the first season of YCDTOTV is lost forever.
