And lord knows WHAT triggered this memory flasback for me, but does anyone else remember the show Turkey Television? It brought us such classic television segments as "Day in the Life of a Food."

I'd rather you got a room. :>

I used to watch that from time to time on Nickelodeon. Day in the life of food was awsome! I usually missed it though, I can't remember why (practice of some kind probably.)

And to continue strange old shows on Nickelodeon, what about "You can't do that on Television!" or "Out of Control" with Dave Coulier.(sp?)

How about "Today's Special"...the show with the mannequin who came alive when you took his hat off. I can still remember the theme song...

"Today's Special!! Shout it loud and clear!!"

Turkey television has got me stumped though...

I remember that show on Nickelodeon (Turkey Television). It was the first place I had seen Dana Carvey. There were different bits and pieces of a show he did and they would spread them through the episodes. In one of the bits he was singing the ever popular song "Choppin Brocoli" (later used by Kenny Mayne on sportscenter).

I remember Turkey Television as a lame attempt to cash in on "You can't do that on Television." YCDTOT was cool among my gang, while Turkey Television was most definitely not.

I was just thinking about all those old-school Nick shows the other day: Pinwheel, Today's Special, Out Of Control, Turkey Television, YCDTOT, Lights Camera Action, Mr. Wizard, The Tomorrow People, The Third Eye, that sports show with Reggie Jackson.

Ahhh memories...

Dude, The Third Eye -- specifically "Under the Mountain" (I believe it was called) scared the ever-lovin' bejeezus out of me when I was kid.

The only things I remember about Pinwheel were that the show was like 12 hours long, the theme song was catchy as hell, and there was this wacky inchworm on the show.

I also loved "You can't do that..." religiously.

I must correct you on Today's Special. The mannequin came alive when you put the hat on him. He'd revert to mannequin form when the hat would fall off.

I'll confess that I'm creeped out whenever I see Nerene Virgin showing up in newscaster form on CBC. It taints my childhood via the fact she isn't really Jody. She definitely has a new look:

And here's two phrases for all the fans of Canadian kiddie TV.

"The Polkaroo was here? And I missed him again."
"What's that Dumpty?"

And now I'm trying to recall Math Patrol and Cucumber.

Dear Lord I can't believe you remember that show! That show rocked the house. I believe A.I. was a pale imiitation to our god in the chckered hat. BTW was there a series finale or somethin? I wanna know if he ever became human.

Spongebob is the only thing worth watching on Nickeleodeon these days. Damn Rocket Power.

OMFG. Best. Thread. Today.
Jesus, this takes me back to being... 8-9 years old in 1982-1983. I loved all those Nickelodeon shows. Pinwheel was a great show, if for no other reason (though there were plenty of other good things about it), for:
"IT'S CAP-TAAAIN MINUS!!!" (dun dun daaaaaahhhh, dun nuh nuh dun nuh nuh daaaaaaahhhh!!)

A "Hocus Pocus Alamagocus!!" for the "Today's Special" fans out there. And "Turkey Television" fucking ROCKED. C'mon, Ivan Tellalye, Hero of Soviet Union, 85th Class; Thurman T. Turkey; and skits from "The Uncle Floyd Show" (such as "A Day In The Life Of A Food") in the same show?? What more could you ask for??

I even remember some of the short cartoons with Thurman and that pilgrim guy who used to hunt him - the one where Thurman's playing the piano and the guy asks Thurman, "Do you know... 'I'm in the Mood for Love'?" ("No, I don't. Even if I did, but I don't!")... well, you had to be there, I guess, but I would LMAO at that one...

I wish I could find Tomorrow People on video or something. God, the market for all those old Nick shows would be massive, I'd bet. Anybody care to license and distribute?

Hey, if the Sid and Marty Krofft shows can get collected on DVD, anything's possible, I bet. Rhino's probably already on the case.

Just fo the love of God. . .no one must license "The Great Space Coaster." That show hurt like a bullet in the kneecap.

Ah, The Tomorrow People. The show that officially put the word jaunt in my vocabulary.

Damn, I watched Nick religiously as a kid. Tomorrow People was my favorite since it was sci-fi aimed at a younger audience that didn't insult your intelligence.

Too bad the only thing "You Can't..." is known for nowadays is the fact that Alanis Morrisette was on it breifly. Just thinking of my makes we want a Barth Burger.

I even remember when their logo was the silver ball and they had a jingle for the channel when it signed off.

Look around, we can find a world of magic.
Look around, we can make the world your freind.

*sigh* Only thing worth watching on Nick now is Invader Zim.

And the heart patient girl from "Airplane!" Credit where it's due.

Which they've already good and axed before they ran all the episodes. Damn Sept 11th for giving 'em the excuse.

At least they didn't pervert it like "Ren and Stimpy" and allowed them to do a final episode for X-mas.
