1995 (Canadian?) kids' show name
March 8, 2012 9:12 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to remember the name of a children's TV show broadcast on (I think) YTV around 1995, I think it was in the slot after Camp Cariboo. It was probably Canadian, and it had a mailbox puppet that said "YOOOOOOU BET!" when asked if there was any mail, and one of the men on the show used to dress up like a bee, which I remember terrifying me as a child. It may have been broadcast on TVO, but I'm fairly certain it was YTV.

When I try to describe it to people my age who grew up in Ontario, they ask me if I mean Camp Cariboo, but no, it was a different show, but I think it came on right after. The set as I remember it was plain, mostly just stark white backgrounds, not like Camp Cariboo which was set in a cabin/outside. It was "sketch" style, I don't think there was any storyline.

andreapandrea, when I was little I had the biggest irrational hatred on for that stupid record with its stupid spoon. Still don't know why.

Gosh it's amazing how that flooded back.
Crazy Mr. Twister is crazy you see! One day he's a cowboy, the next he's a bee...

Was it Size Small that had the record and spoon? Given the picture on that Wikipedia page, it must have been, and I remember that show, but not the record.
