“A kid's show made by adults who would really rather be doing an adult show.” - the creators of COWBOY WHO?
“It's as anarchistic as the Marx Brothers, as psychedelic as "Pee Wee's Playhouse" and as innocent as "Winnie the Pooh," and produced on a shoestring by some very clever and creative folks who appear to have broken into some second rate TV studio somewhere in Ottawa.” - Rolly Veloman, Amazon
On the Ottawa airwaves from 1990 - 1994 there existed the strangest children's show ever conceived: COWBOY WHO? It begins as another show entirely, COWBOY PAT, an innocuous riff on the HOWDY-DOODY SHOW, only to gradually transform in to satirical deconstruction of all forms of entertainment as if Douglas Adams, Mark Frost and The Kids and The Hall were remaking HILARIOUS HOUSE of FRIGHTENSTEIN with the resources of the first season of Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Perhaps the greatest piece of four seasons of television our country has ever produced.
Experience the most memorable episodes of the series while eating as much cereal as you can, and then meet series creators Jeff Green and Mike Cormier, as well as some of the characters from the show live and in person!
Marathon begins at noon, with the panel taking place at 2:30 PM.
