A guilty pleasure!, 26 August 2007
Author: BlackJack_B

I was in my late teens and early 20s when I watched UTUT. It wasn't really to see Gloria Gopher, Iggy Iguana or Jacob Blue Jay's adventures but to ogle Holly Larocque. Ms. Larocque may not be (insert man-made babe here) but her outfits, demeanor, acting ability and enthusiasm was a turn-on for me. I had a massive crush on her. She was a true understated beauty; kind of like Marcia Strassman and Julianne Moore.

Still, there were some great episodes on occasion and Gloria, Iggy and Jacob were great characters. My favorite episode was the one where Iggy envied his friends for being taller than him. He did everything he could to get over. When they were being measured, he greased his hair up. Then he built a stretching machine that nearly killed him and finally starting wearing block shoes. In the end, he got over when he went to a magic show and was just the right size for aiding the magicians and getting a T-Shirt. Lessons were learned but unlike Diff'rent Strokes it wasn't done in a heavy-handed manner.

Then and now, Canadians can make great children's T.V. This was a true classic. DVDs are out now so check this one out.
