Launched in 1976, the Emmy Award-winning SCTV, or Second City Television, followed the exploits of an aspiring fictional television station, led by Owner and President Guy Caballero (Flaherty), and the inimitable personalities who starred in its local programs. Spoofing TV programming staples like game shows, talk shows and film shows, famous sketches featured in SCTV Golden Classics include “The Great White North,” “Monster Chiller Horror Theatre,” “Farm Film Report,” and parodies of Jeopardy!, The Merv Griffin Show and The Dick Cavett Show. Laugh-out-loud celebrity impersonations and musical numbers include Candy as Pavorotti in a chewing gum ad; Levy as Perry Como singing disco hits; O’Hara as Katherine Hepburn and washed-up singer/actress Lola Heatherton; Short as Jerry Lewis and pointy-haired nerd Ed Grimley; and much, much more.
