    I remember stumbling across SCTV after SNL one night. I hardly ever missed an airing from that point on. What an incredible ensemble they were. To this day I’ll still drop one liners from this show.

    SCTV was as much a part of my teenage years as Rush, Max Webster and Hockey Night In Canada- not to mention stubbys and a big bowl of weed. Some nights watching SCTV, I remember laughing so hard I was gasping for air.
    Thanks for posting.

    You ever watch Kids In The Hall?

    I was born in Hamilton Ontario but grew up outside of Detroit. After I got out of the US Air Force I moved back to Hamilton for 5 years and 1 year in Toronto in the early 80's. SCTV was the funniest and most entertaining show on the boob tube. What a talented cast. John Candy was my favorite comedian of all time.
    The humor may not be for all...but I got it.

    I try to explain SCTV to my younger friends. Unless you've seen it, how do you explain to them that it was as good or better than SNL?!?

    Oh geeze eh?, I'm a big SCTV fan. We used to watch it on channel 53 in Pittsburgh. My kids have been subjected to Count Floyd and Shmenge brothers videos. Night School High Q and What's My Shoe Size are fun, too. The historical footage at the start if the Shmenge Christmas show is unbelievably good. I'll have to go watch all these posted here, too...

    The Kids in the Hall was really funny too. Those were the days when you could poke fun at just about anything without folks freaking out.

    So good. I introduced my partner to Bob & Doug McKenzie when we sang "The 12 Days of Christmas" together at a work party last year. I sang Bob & Doug's lyrics, much to her confusion and amusement.

    If I have to demonstrate an object or graph during a presentation, I will often do the 3D effect from the Count Floyd sketches. If the audience laughs, I know they get the reference.
