Episode Five of the 1979 season.
These 1979 episodes ran one hour and were live with lots of lines flubbed by the kids.
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.
These early episodes had great prize giveaways including a date with Sarah and a date with Jim. They were giving away a portable television set which was sitting on the Link Set picking up the show live!
Jim Johnson does an 'Opposite Sketch' as a DJ at the radio station.
The lockers for the Locker Joke Sketches finally were painted!
Performances include KC and the Sunshine Band - "Do You Feel All Right" and Donna Summer - "Once Upon a Time".
There were no green slimes or waterings in this episode. Tim said 'I don't know' twice while on the Link Set with Elizabeth, but he didn't get slimed!
production: You Can't Do That on Television was repeated live from Ottawa, live from Ottawa, live from Ottawa
