Canadian Children's TV Show WIKI

As a lover of history, and my nostalgia of children's tv shows I watched as a child (early 90s mostly) midway through last year (2023) I created a Wiki page on Canadian Children's TV Shows so that anything known about these show is not lost to history even more than already has been. I try to give synopsis of the shows, episode plots, screenshots, character pages, links to episodes that can be found on youtube, other websites, or how the information is known, and references. And try to include recent news regarding these shows. At this time, the site can't be found through google (I'm not sure how to do that) and I am the only one slowly editing it. Any help or support would be greatly appreciated as it is a slow process.

Shows listed, some of which I have been working on so far include: Mr. Dressup, Under the Umbrella Tree, Today's Special, The Elephant Show, Fred Penner's Place, The Friendly Giant, The Big Comfy Couch, Bookmice, Butternut Square, Join In!, misterogers, Polka Dot Door, ReBoot, Road To Avonlea, The Buck Shot Show, The Edison Twins, and The Racoons.

Thanks mom

I am looking for a commercial from the 80s where a boy is comforted with hot chocolate (Nestle Quick?) by his mother after losing a hockey game. At the end he says, “thanks, mom”

Anyone remember this promo that used to air between shows on Family Channel?

I mentioned this recently and no one had any idea what I was talking about.

In 2003, when Pirates of the Caribbean and Finding Nemo came out, I remember there being short videos on TV about how they did some of the effects. The pirates one talked about the CGI of the skeleton pirates. The FN one talked about how they animated Dory's nose blood. I remember in the Finding Nemo one, a guy showed them dropping ink(?) into a fish tank to show what that would look like underwater.

It wasn't Movie Surfers or Mike's Super Short Show. I've looked up the episodes for both of those.

It was definitely on Family Channel and I checked youtube/the internet archive for bumpers from that time period and haven't seen anything.

Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

What Channel/Time Is The New Hudson & Rex On?

I’m trying to figure out when the new episodes for the new season of Hudson and Rex are on for a few family members that want to watch.

I keep getting different info from different websites about what day it’s on. I know the new season started early January, but every time we tune in to watch, it’s a rerun.

Even the CityTV website now says it’s on Wednesdays at 9:00….I dont see it scheduled on my TV Guide tomorrow night. It’s on tonight (Tuesday) at 8:00, but it’s a rerun.

I’ve also seen it on other channels on other days throughout the week but they are always reruns. We cannot for some reason figure out when the new episodes are on. Does anyone know??

What is the cheapest TV package I can get?

Hey all, I’m not very tech savvy and I don’t know how to get cheap cable tv. My partner says it would cost at least $50 but I feel like there has to be cheaper options? Ty

Animated holocaust movie from 1990ish

Hello! My brother and I are trying to identify a movie from our childhood that we're pretty sure we had recorded onto a VHS from Canadian TV. We're down in Washington, but lived right by the border and growing up our only 4 TV channels were Canadian :) This would have been late 80s/ early 90s. Our memories of the movie are vague, but disturbing lol. Here's what we've come up with:

  • It is an animated movie set during the holocaust. The protagonist was a child who may be named "Sasha" or something similar, and she had short dark hair and wore a tattered blue shirt. I don't remember any of the plot.
  • I remember the animation style as being kind of reminiscent of stop-motion-meets-anime. It was very dark and had an over-exposed quality (if that makes any sense)
  • There was a scene (I think it may have been the opening scene) of running through this creepy forest in a first-person perspective. I also remember a train featuring prominently.
  • If you've ever seen Watership Down from around the same era, it's just a similar "how the f did anyone think this would make a good children's movie" vibe to that.

I know this is almost nothing to go on, but it's worth a shot! We've both exhausted our googling abilities at this point. Anyone have any ideas?

Need help identifying a (possibly) Canadian TV show

Hey everyone, about a decade ago I remember watching a few episodes of this tv show where people who have some kind of disagreement agree to fight in a boxing ring to settle it. The show looked like it was possibly late 90s/ early 2000s, and had some guy doing voice-over commentary.

I’ve tried to find the name of the show for a while now, but I keep turning up blanks!

Does anyone know what show I’m on about, or did I possibly hit my head and imagine the whole thing? Thanks!

How do you stream Canadian television without a cable login.

I used to be able to put on my vpn and enjoy some north of the border tv. Now every tv station website wants me to login with my Rogers or other telco credentials. Is there a way around this?

If you want to watch 'BlackBerry' rent it, because it's great. Slogging through it on CBC Gem is awful.

I love CBC and I loved this movie. But between the three part dissection, and the incessant advertisements it was absurd. For each 1 hour segment it was 20 minutes of recap, repeat credits, and stupidly repetitive ads. It was impossible to get immersed in the story. I'm not sure who would ever respond to 16 advertisements for 'Depends' (no judgement) but this was over the top. A movie does not deserve to be treated this way.

Can anyone tell me why Global TV is so delayed with SNL episodes going live?

I understand that we're the bottom of the barrel when it comes to streaming in general. I put up with a lot (compared to when I lived in the US) like relentless ads, and them completely removing musical acts and sometimes even the monologue, but why in the hell am I waiting days for the latest episode to get on the service (I'm a subscriber by the way)?

I know I can watch it all on Instagram immediately, but I am stubborn. What the actual hell is going on?!
