I was a ten-year-old pioneer of Canadian comedy viewing.
It's sometime in late 1976 or early 1977. I'm curled up in a big chair, upstairs at my grandma's house, in front of my aunt's TV. I'm either babysitting my baby cousin, or they're babysitting me--I'm not sure which. Whenever I'm over here watching TV, I see all these cool shows I've never seen at home. The Rockford Files. Upstairs Downstairs. And tonight--I come across something so funny it makes me practically spit my Kool-Aid all over my Fonzie t-shirt.
