Two more pages in the Morphicon 2007 diary: 2-3 and 2-4.
It was indeed a sort of Laugh In for kids. The first season of YCDTOTV even had one of the Laugh In cast. Some of the music was if not the same, very similar. I only saw what turned out to be cut up episodes of Laugh In on Nick At Night in the late 1980s. There was also an attempt at a clone of YCDTOTV entitled Don't Look Now that aired on PBS and wasn't as good - it only lasted about 4 or 5 episodes. I saw that, and watched as I could get PBS and there was no cable.
