Title: The Worst of You Can't Do That On Television


In 1987, Nickelodeon and Carleton Productions began working on a compilation tape, splicing together the best (or worst) moments from 1979 to 1987. The tape was hosted by three of the 1987 regulars -- Vanessa Lindores, Adam Reid and Doug Ptolemy -- and the finished product was 50 minutes. Sadly, however, before the product hit the market, it's assumed that Nickelodeon lost interest in the project, most likely due to the fact that YCDTOTV went on possible permanent hiatus in 1988 after creator and producer Roger Price left to work on other endeavors.


  • Thanks to bootleg copies, this version does exist today.
  • This hour-long version of the special was never commercially distributed as originally intended. Two years later, a 30-minute version was released by Elektra Home Video under the same name but with Chris Bickford, Jennifer Brackenbury, and Christian Tessier hosting footage from 1979-1989.
