You Can’t Do That On Television was a sketch TV show, by young amateur actors, in true classic Nickelodeon style. It featured pre-teen and teenaged actors in a sketch comedy format similar to that of the United States Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In and Saturday Night Live. Each episode had a specific theme normally relating to pop culture of the time. The show was notable for launching the careers of many performers, including alternative rock singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, and screenwriter Bill Prady.
