A Canadian Kids Game Show,Japanese style hosted by Yoshi Amao.

I've seen Almost Anything Goes,It's a Knockout and Wipeout,but has anyone here ever seen this wacky show? :roll: :x

On ABC 23 about 12,for 3 shows for an Hour or so.

I stand corrected.

Seems like it went for 3 Hours,with about 8 or 9 shows going to Air.

The other thing I observed was that the Cast and Audience was Japanese.The competitors all seemed to be Canadian.

Interesting! :shock:

It has become so expensive to produce some TV shows, that it turns out to be much cheaper to build the set in one country and fly over the competitors and on-air talent from other countries. Amusingly, they have to employ a couple of additional locals to hold up signs that say "Laugh" or some such in the local language, though the audience is supposed to include English speaking locals and ex-pats.
A local example of this was "The Wall" which was filmed in Warsaw (along with the Polish, Russian, Hungarian and Czech versions and some USA episodes).
