Episode Eight of the 1979 season.
These 1979 episodes ran one hour.
These early shows were not produced by Carleton Productions but, rather, CJOH Productions. 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". These episodes featured disco dancing by local kids. The background for the dances looked similar to the link set and was full of metallic paper and disco lights.
More great prize giveaways.
This episode features a repeat broadcast of the "Weather" sketch with Les and Jono. Geoffrey Darby reports that the "Weather" scene was the actual very first sketch that was ever taped.
The catch phrase "I don't know" now causes the green slime to fall.
Watch for the shadow of the boom mic on the back wall. It was visible a lot.
There were no Sketches on the Link Set (except for when Moose goes in and interviews Ruth Buzzi as Ruth is cleaning up. The kids were not allowed in the studio because the network version was being made in Studio D.
Performances include Atlanta Rhythm Section - "I'm Not Gonna Let it Bother Me Tonight", Trooper - "Round Round We Go", and Kiss - "Hard Luck Woman".
