Kevin Somers goes on the
Make A Million game show ("The show that
gives away a million dollars every week!"),
and almost wins the money, but in a desperate
act, Mr. Dime cancels the show before Kevin gets
the chance to answer the question and then the
opening credits occur.
Later, Kevin brags about being a star after
receiving a single (unstamped) piece of fan mail,
which Marc talks him into letting him answer.
Kevin continues to brag when Ross comes on the
set, and dumps a big bag of fan mail on the set
... all for Jono, who must answer all of it by
that night. Kevin, embarassed, asks for just one.
Unfortunately, it's from the phone company.
Meanwhile Kevin Schenk is sent off to summer camp
and asks his drunken father if going to summer
camp is a time for enjoyment and relaxation and
assures him it is. But he tells his father he's
not enjoying himself and feeling relaxed about
going to camp as it's not his idea of a good time
and his father said the enjoyment and relaxation
isn't for him, it's for himself and his wife.
Then Schenk and his mother (The same character's
that were used in the pilot episode when the
mother desperately was trying to get him into the
show cause he was in a Glitto soap pad
commercial) arrive at the camp and see one of the
kids chained up in the cabin Schenk is staying
Another time there are three of the kids that
shares a room but there are only two beds. The
camp counsellor tells them that one of them will
either drown, get food poisoning or fall into
Then when breakfast is served all they get is
bacon from the slobby cook and Schenk tells them
that according to the papers that they were
supposed to get other breakfast foods and the
cook tells them the paper is correct as they got
the rest of the meals individually.
Towards the end of the show Schenk realises that
his Aunt Agatha is coming to visit and tries to
hide in order not to be kissed but then he
realises that she wants to kiss Marc and when he
walks to the set she tries to kiss him when he
asks Schenk to all her off.

upcoming 1981 season of You
Can't Do That On Television. Plus the skits at the
summer camp were reused for the sister show.
the show was taped from a YTV broadcast and the person
stopped taping it when Ian
Thomas came on as a musical guest
someone else from Kelowna taped it on YTV
showing the whole show except for the musical
guest and in good quality too. Oh well we can't
win everything. This is one of the most memorable
shows of the series and one of the best one's
