Sketch TV by young amateur actors in true classic Nick-style. But whatever you do, never admit that you don't know or ask for water.
As it so happened, the series title was previously heard on television in a third season episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961). In 'The Return of Edwin Carp', which aired April 1, 1964, Buddy Sorrell (Morey Amsterdam) says "You can't do that on television" after Robert Petrie (Dick Van Dyke) asks "What's the one thing that's never been done on television?"
Valarie: Not that foil.

The 1985 "Fears, Worries, and Anxieties" episode had to be modified in one scene. The scene had Alasdair, Mom, and Dad talking about a bully at school called "Killer Curtis". When it was discovered that there actually WAS a murderer named Killer Curtis in the U.S., they decided that the bully's name should be changed, so the words "killer Curtis" were changed to "Crusher Willis". This was done very badly because between the time that the episode was shot, and when they made the recording, Alasdair's voice had changed.
