In 1979, a Canadian TV station in Ottawa, Ontario (the nation's capital) produced the first episode of You Can't Do That on Television, a popular children's live-action comedy series. Two years later (1981), Nickelodeon in the US carried the show, and was a successful hit series lasted until the early 1990s. Nickelodeon, followed by the Disney Channel (began 1982) and Cartoon Network (premiered 1992), owes a salute to YCDTOTV, for making children's television what it is. The show's adult male actor, Les Lye, died in 2009 at age 85, surely deserves a Maple Leaf-star on the Canadian Walk of Fame in Toronto.

I think I remember this show, but the introduction used to scare me as a child, so I never watched the episodes. It'll be interesting to look over this first one, now that such graphics can't scare me as an adult, lol. I love the idea that children produced this show. Did you watch it growing up?

Yes I have, when I first had cable when I was around 5 or 6. YCDTOTV reruns continued to air until 1994 and was replaced by All That, Nickelodeon's attempt to bring 1990s styles to children's television. There is an article on YCDTOTV on Wikipedia and on IMDB, the top source for information on legendary TV shows.

Wow, such nostalgia.  I had no idea Les Lye passed.  What a shame.  I hope he gets a place on the Walk of Fame.
