Les Lye, the other grown-up, from You Can’t Do That On Television apparently died on July 21, 2009. I’m going to go ahead and say this has been the most devastating year of TV-related deaths EVER.
And can I just say- after watching a bunch of these old clips, I am beyond amazed that this show was on for ten years, not because it wasn’t funny or original but because, it must be said- you really can’t do this on television anymore. Especially Nickelodeon. Talk about devastating.
Tell me you don’t feel a nostalgic jolt when you see the opening credits for the show. It’s like being reunited with a long-lost little brother.
