Welcome to the It's Alive! guide at TV Tome. This cuddly little creature is Al,the host of this show. Along with a group of young canadian actors, he would introduce the various sketches of the show. I like to call it a Spoof Variety show, because that's exactly what it was. There were parodies of all sorts of things from Body Break to The Young and the Restless. It started out with one-hour long episodes, including two game show segments, a live musical guest, and lots of sketches in between. It was later cut back to a half-hour.
