    Default Ruth Buzzi

    I wonder why Ruth Buzzi, who appeared in the YCDTOTV spin-off "Whatever turns you on", didn't returned for the 1981 YCDTOTV season?

    Probably wasn't in the budget. You saw how they had to cut out a lot of the '79 kids for WTYO. They couldn't afford to keep all of them (or most). Ruth Buzzi was expensive to have, as far as I know.

    I'm also willing to bet Ruth had simply moved on to other things after WTYO bombed. I think the whole point of getting Ruth for WTYO was that it was going to be a national show and they wanted a big-name star to convince CTV to go ahead with it.
