Remembering SCTV

Born in 1975, I grew up during the 1980s, and to this day there are certain shows from that decade that never fail to bring a smile to my face as I reminisce. Among them is SCTV, which began as a Toronto-based sketch comedy program in 1976 and was later picked up by NBC in 1981.

SCTV’s ensemble cast included Joe Flaherty, who portrayed such characters as Count Floyd, Guy Caballero, William F. Buckley (!), and Sammy Maudlin. Old-time Ricochetti will recall the time when @pseudodionysius discovered that Mr. Flaherty was a member of the legacy site. What a moment that was.

Anyway, what brought SCTV and Mr. Flaherty to mind today was this clip from a 1982 episode of the program. Watching this reminded me of simpler, happier days in my life. And I think you’ll love the surprise that comes just after the 3:40 mark.

Good times. 😎
