In the early 1980's That's Life, hosted by Peter Feniack, was a popular Canadian magazine show that covered stories of the day. In this hort video segment the show pays a visit to John Candy and his young family at their home near the town of Newmarket, just north of Toronto. SCTV loomed large in the public mind, and with the smash comedy Stripes under his belt, John was on his way to wide acclaim.

Not only is this 1970 production considered one of the seminal moments in the creation of Canada's film industry, but SCTV's version, Garth And Gord And Fiona And Alice, is considered one of the best parodies in Canadian comedy history. Directed by Don Shebib, this film is the story of two hard-luck Maritimers who, like many before them, head west to "Hogtown" (Toronto) in search of work, women, and a new life. In a wonderful twist, actress Jayne Eastwood appears in both versions and in an added interview with Joe Flaherty.

These educational public service announcements began running on Canadian television in the early 1960's. They were produced by the Canadian Wildlife Service (a division of Environment Canada) to promote knowledge and respect of Canada's vast wilderness. In the process the spots and their haunting theme music (used in the SCTV spoof) have taken on an almost cult-like status in Canada. In 2003 CWS relaunched the program in cooperation with the Canadian Wildlife Federation.

So where did the concept of Fishin' Musician and its host Gil Fisher come from? Before the days of specialty TV networks, about the only good fishing and camping on TV in Canada and the northern U.S. was a little independent show called The Red Fisher Show. Short on polish but long on heart, it ran for 21 years starting in 1968 and followed Red and his celebrity guests as they traveled all over the world in search of adventure. Each episode opened with Red setting up the story and telling a few tales on the studio set porch of what became his famous Scuttlebut Lodge. Red's show was also partially the inspiration for another Canadian hit comedy series, The Red Green Show. For those of you that miss Red's show, here is some great news, at 88 years of age he is still reeling in the big ones.
