You know, Barth runs a pretty clean place here.
Clean? You call this place clean? Why even the rats wouldn't be caught dead in here!
Yeah, and even if they did they'd end up in the burger mix anyway.

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. See more »
I was too young to realize it back then, but this is hilarious...
From the Python-esque opening cartoon to the end credits, "YCDTOT" is easily one of the best sketch comedies ever made. It's faster and more frenetic than "Roundhouse," "All That," or even SNL, and it resorts to current events and pop culture less frequently than other sketch comedies.
A talented young cast is led by Les Lye (arguably the star of the show) in routines satirizing the ins-and-outs of kid life: school buses, cafeterias, arcades. Sometimes it gets even wackier - the Mexican firing squad routines and slime/water/etc. gags are priceless.
See it if you can find it.
