Squawk Box ran on YTV in the mid 90's, airing for one season before leaving rather quietly. Starring most notably, Dov Teifenbach (Cheaters, Delicate Art of Parking), the cast was multi-sexed and multi-aged, ranging from about 12-40ish. The show was essentially a skit show aimed at kids, though the humour (while not necessarily highbrow by any means, take for instance the Les Connoisseurs segments) was in no way childish. Spoofs on Cop Shows, The Godfather, 50's sitcoms, International Politics, Sports trades, relationships were all tackled with gusto. There are simply too many great moments of this show to mention.
This show rests in my memory and my heart as my favourite show of all time. Sadly remains largely unknown other than as a cult-favourite of a few...myself included. This show, more than anything else, has influeced my sense of humour to what it is now.
