Episode Four 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.
The 'Opposite Sketches' were beginning to take form in this episode as a result of a joke told by one of the kids at the roving camera on the last show.
Christine says that 'Moose' is her nickname, but she doesn't say why.
The lockers for the locker joke sketches were not yet painted in the familiar YCDTOTV colors, but were still the original dark green color.
Performances include Eddie Money - "Two Tickets to Paradise", Johnny Rivers - "Slow Dancin' (Swayin' to the Music)", and Atlanta Rhythm Section - "Imaginary Lover".
There were no green slimes or waterings in this episode.
