Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

True, this isn't about the 70's, but hey it's my site:

I've always considered the early to mid-80's to be pop culture's vanilla years - bland, white bread, etc. One exception was Nickelodeon's "You can't do that on television". I watched it when I came home from school. The character i liked best was Lisa Ruddy (the motormouth. She's the one in the bottom pic on the far left, next to "Moose"). I had a minor crush on that chick.

I loved when they dumped the slime and buckets of water on people!

joe said...

Remember the line "Don't encourage him, dear"..

Hairball said...

Yep!

Some Guy said...

This show was a classic, full of gross-out humor!

joe said...

Remember Barf Burgers?? Or was it Barth burgers. Either way I don't think I'd ever order one.

Jeve (aka John and Steve) said...

HA! That's awesome. Thanks for the trip to memory lane.

teri said...

I caught this show every so often, too. Even though I was older, it was intriguing.

joe said...

Jeve: You're welcome!

Teri: Hey, it's okay to admit that you liked this show! Go ahead, admit it! Say it. Say, "I'm Teri, and I loved this show". Go ahead, you know you want to...

The show did debut in 1979, so technically it does qualify as 70s nostalgia.

That being said, I loved that show...too bad kids programming is nowhere near as funny and creative like YCDTOTV.

joe said...

Thanks JB. Yes, kids today don't know what they're missing. I wouldn't want to be a kid today for anything.

Gilligan said...

Moose was m'lady. Don't let the name fool anyone - she was a fox.

teri said...

I didn't LOVE it. the characters were interesting and of course I loved the green slime.

joe said...

Gil: She seemed the most intelligent of the bunch.

Teri: I loved the slime. I wonder if that's what inspired the green ghost character on ghostbusters that slimed people it touched.

Kimberly said...

Love the show...what was the phrase that = slime? "I don't know"?

joe said...

Yeah I think so.. although it's been 24 years since I've seen it.

I Loved this show....this is back when Nickelodeon was a new thing! I agree....the part where they said "I don't know" and got slimed was the best. I also liked the sketches with the weird Mom and Dad. Nothing today compares to this!

joe said...

It was kind of like 'Laugh-In' for kids.

Hairball said...

I agree that "I don't know" was the phrase that got you slimed and saying "water" got you drenched.

*suddenly Hairball is slimed and a bucket of water is thrown on her*

joe said...

**Sigh** some people never learn..

Lynda said...

hahaha, I use to love this show.

I remember the episode where the kid would do something bad so his mom would make him practice the piano, because he secretly loved to play piano.

I thought that was such a great idea.

Wings said...

Oh man, my brother and I used to watch that show ALL the time. Loved it!

joe said...

Lynda: When I was in school and wasn't into homework, I'd tell my mom I had an art project to do. I'd spend the hour drawing. She was so gullible.. I still haven't told her.

Wings: Yeah I never missed a day watching it.

Charmed said...

OMG! I remember the green slime!!

joe said...

Who can forget the green slime...
