This is what I grew up

^This is what I grew up on, and I think it greatly influenced my sense of humor: You Can't Do That On Television. Canada, you do it (comedy) and you do it well. See your invasion of the USA started with us as children. Another kids' comedy that was along the same lines was "All That!" later on, although good sketch comedies are rare in adult or teen TV – the Carol Burnett Show being, to me, the ultimate standard, which was not Canadian and Monty Python, which is not Canadian but could have been. The warning for 5 + under here is due to the Monty Pythonesque intro, which features cartoonized kids getting ground into sausage. Ahh, Canada. You can't do that on television – but you did. And we ate it up.^
