This Show was a Turkey!
16 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Turkey Television was a spin-off of the hugely popular "You Can't Do That on Television," another Canadian show from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Turkey Television or Turkey TV didn't last as long as it could have been. They would take skits, cartoons, and sketches that featured popular Christine McGlade and other alums of "You Can't Do That on Television" but without the green slime. Turkey Television was fine but it wasn't great as I remembered it. I don't miss it as much as I miss "You Can't Do That on Television" because there was really no cast of regular characters. The sketches and cartoons if I remember came from all over the world. They allowed cartoons and sketches and skits that the audience wouldn't normally see without it on Turkey Television. We could use some Turkey Television today with the increased animation industry and computer generated cartoons that we can watch and enjoy whether we are kids or adults.
