You may not know who Les Lye is, but if you watched “You Can’t Do That on Television” then you know. Mr. Lye died a couple days ago. TCDTOTV was a favorite of mine growing up. I remember the first time I saw it at a friend’s house: they had cable, we didn’t. Because of that show, I wanted to get cable TV.
Kids today watch Nickelodeon and see all this green slime being dropped all over the place. Ask them if they know how the slime originated and I’m sure their response will be “I don’t know.” 🙂
