    Wow, I used to love this show as a kid. My favorite kid was Christine she was so cute had a crush on The skits were so funny espically at Barf's Burgers. When someone said "I don't know" the green slime would fall on them, ahh the memories .....great stuff

    I miss the original slime. It truly looked gross and had all those clunks in it. Blarf (or whatever the creepy cook's name was) was my favorite segment cause it was so damn gross!
    aqua1976 Posted 3 years 3 months ago
    it looked like it oatmeal in it

    I loved this show! I discovered it when I first got cable T.V. in 1984...I loved how Vanessa and Doug fought with each other all the time!
    EZR09 Posted 10 years 25 days ago
    I love this show because it's funny and I didn't know that Alanis Morrisette was You Can't Do That On Television before she began her singing career until I was in middle school. I began listening to her music when I was in 5th grade.
    YCDTOYT Posted 10 years 1 month ago
    Hi We have brought the show back to life as You Can't Do That On YouTube! or YCDTOYT . You can see it on youtube or our website
    EZR09 Posted 10 years 1 month ago
    I used to watch this show when I was little with my family and I saw it for Nickelodeon's birthday when I was in middle school. I also saw it during Nickeloden Old School picks four years ago. I have it on dvd now.

    Nothing like watching the dad sit at the table and drink a beer over supper. Blip's arcade would always rip everyone off. Alastar would get so ticked off because he would be winning and Blip would pull the cord. Lisa was always getting yelled at by Moose because she would never Shut the F*** up.
    infaredsinsor Posted 10 years 2 months ago
    What a trip in time!! I would never miss an episode of this show. As I am older now, I see how messed up these skits really were. God, I love it!

    Does anyone remember a skit called "The Connoisseurs" where two of the main characters (a guy and a girl) would be sitting on a bench in a park and they would take turns farting and rating each others' farts by odor and texture?

    "the intro is just like the robot jones intro!"


    The show debatedly takes place in the 80s so it makes sense
    Newcreature584 Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    NickelodeonFan97 Posted 10 years 9 months ago
    The intro was creepy. Especially the 1981 version where the guy at the end is as white as a ghost/statue with some weird ":O" look on his face...*shudder*

    Great show though.
    YeahSonic Posted 10 years 9 months ago
    In my opinion, one of the greatest opening sequences in the history of television. But maybe that's because I like Monty Python so much.

    And, hey, JMan1975! DaaaaaaaaIIII heard thaaat! Spongebob Squarepants is an awesome show! I thought it was stupid, too, until I actually gave it a chance.
    ducktalesfan1977 Posted 10 years 9 months ago
    The last time I saw You Can't Do That on Television was the year 1990. This show is the best Nickelodeon show to date. Too bad Nickelodeon went downhill after this show was cancelled.

    It's long overdue for this show to be on DVD.
    flanfan1 Posted 10 years 10 months ago
    the intro is just like the robot jones intro!
    JMan1975 Posted 10 years 10 months ago
    Great show! Great into and funy things. This show was the greatest Nickeloden show before this crap that they got out now like spongebob squarepants and all of that other crap that nickeloden show. They need to get this show on DVD.
    blueluigi Posted 11 years 3 days ago
    That's right, I watched it during Nick's 25th anniversery. It aired during Nick's old school pick. My sister (who is Redyoshi by the way) said to me that this show was weird not to mention when one of the cast members was stepping on the person's foot I remembered she said was pretty stupid.
    rustyshackleford01 Posted 11 years 7 days ago
    hey redyoshi,was he watching on Nick's 24th anniversary special, cause that's the last time it was on that I remember
    Redyoshi Posted 11 years 13 days ago
    I remembered one time back in 2004, I saw my brother watch this show and asked "What on Earth are you watching?" and then he said he was watching You Can't Do that On Television. After watching part of it, I thought it was kind of weird.

    The intro to this show kind of remind of the intro to "Monty Python's Flying Circus."

    Nick HD? Wait a minute, are you telling me that Nickelodeon is gonna start airing their shows in HD with YCDTOTV being aired on there?

    comming soon it will be in nick hd.
    blueluigi Posted 11 years 6 months ago
    There was going to be a DVD release that they were going to release in Nick's Rewind Collection along with Clarrisa Explains it All, Pete and Pete, and Salute Your Shorts but it got cancelled for now. It was announced when the first season sets of Pete and Pete and Clarissa were released. But then they cancelled it before they could release the third and final season of pete and pete and release the rest of Clarissa and before YCDTOTV and Salute your Shorts could make it to DVD.

    I agree with Tracy and ducktalesfan I totaly miss thoes shows. I guess the kids grew up and they never put new kids on.

    Absolutely amazing. This is one of my all time favorite shows on Nickelodeon before they started airing garbage.

    they need to revive this show for the next generation, I don't think there's a kids' sketch show on TV these days
    hsmith98 Posted 11 years 10 months ago
    Great show. I remember Barf, and the mom always asking the kids if they had on clean underwear.
    retroguy78 Posted 11 years 10 months ago
    I thought this show was so funny as a kid, and Alanis Morisette went on to become a huge rock star years after the show ended.
    Celeste Posted 11 years 11 months ago
    YCDTOTV was filmed in Ottawa. Most of the cast lived there except for Jamie Burning who had to be flown in from out west and he hated flying according to his profile on
    Nano512 Posted 12 years 9 days ago
    This was one of my faves too. As I grew up I did notice the Monty Python references.

    I LOVED this show, but the intro scared the living shit out of me when I was little. The music and the face at the end... *shudder* I used to have to leave the room.

    To this day, if I see it and am caught off-guard, I still jump inside a tiny bit, lmao. I'm a dork, lol.

    I Hope this show comes to DVD I liked the show. I liked the oposite sketches the most.
    JabarR Posted 12 years 5 months ago
    Lisa Ruddy was such a cutie pie and Christine "Moose" McGlade was great as well. When those two left, the show just wasn't the same anymore. They were the essence of YCDTOTV.
    Barth Posted 12 years 6 months ago
    The chef's name is Barth..Not Barf

    The "Backwards world" was called the opposite sketches

    The Mom and Dad's names were Lance and Vallerie Prevert
    xenocrisis0153 Posted 12 years 6 months ago
    Why is this show not on DVD??? This was like THE show to watch on Nickelodeon back in the day. I never knew it was Canadian, guess I was too young to care. I remember the skits of the executioner who always yelled "fire" at the wrong moments, Barth's Diner, the locker kids, and something about Backwards World where the kids were in charge and the adults were whiny and bratty.
    diggidy28 Posted 12 years 6 months ago
    I watched this show all the time as a kid, I don't know why. All I remember is getting slimed from saying "I don't know" and that old guy that was really weird. Wasn't he named Barf in the family sketch? Or was it when he was a chef? I don't know
    G UNIT Posted 12 years 7 months ago
    yeah man...that happened to me too..the intro scared me because i had no idea what was goin on...i just watched it now and i totally remember being weirded out as a kid
    DieYuppieScum Posted 12 years 8 months ago
    This is where the Nickelodeon trademark of "sliming" was born in all it's gooey glory.

    And Y.C.D.T.O.T gets none of the credit because they are too buzy coming out with crap T.V. shows like Catscratch and Spongebob.
    Sneakers00 Posted 12 years 8 months ago
    This show must have been on somthing

    (1) Yes it was Canada but I'm not sure of the City.

    (2) Alanis Morissette was on the show. She played "alanis".
