SCTV personalities Earl Camembert (Eugene Levy), Floyd Robertson (Joe Flaherty), Johnny LaRue (John Candy), Lin Ye Tang (Dave Thomas), Lola Heatherton (Catherine O'Hara), and Dr. Cheryl Kinsey (Andrea Martin) host an affectionate look back at the network's first three decades. Highlights include a clip from the 1952 Hearing on Unamerican Activities, in which Earl's father sells his grandmother down the river. Also featured: a roundup of classic Westerns canceled because of too much violence (including "Yellowbelly" and "Liverboat"); and a lengthy vignette from the classic panel show "What's My Shoe Size?," with host John Charles Bailey (Levy) presiding over a panel consisting of Dorothy Kilpatrick (O'Hara), Bennet Cerb (Thomas), Arlene Franklin (Martin) and special guest star Kirk Douglas (portrayed by Joe Flaherty).
