You Can’t Do That On Television: Pop Music

June 22, 2016
Join Shawn and Scott as they take a look back at a magical time in the history of Nickelodeon, back in the early 80's when a low budget Canadian sketch show for kids dared to defy convention, prompting many to say its title: "You Can't Do That On Television"! Listen as they break down the episode entitled "Pop Music", which most notably, was the television debut of a young Alanis Morrisette! They'll talk about Alanis' short run on the show, the history of the infamous green slime, and how it ended up becoming intertwined with Nickelodeon's identity as a network, how the longtime kid host, Christine McGlade, pretty much got the job accidentally, and how this show was heavily influenced by Monty Python's Flying Circus and Laugh In. So many sketches, so many that wouldn't be aired today! So relax in your dungeon, avoid saying "I don't know", and enjoy this slice of 80's nostalgia along with us! I heard that!
