    The MacKenzie Brothers sketch was originally created and included in the show as a protest against "Canadian content" governmental regulations that required a certain amount of Canadian "cultural" subjects to be included in the show. The network was demanding that the show adhere to the rules, the artists resisted and the MacKenzie Brothers resulted. Never meant to be anything more than satire, the routine became one of the most popular of the series and, ironically, was one of the most popular known Canadian acts of the period, both domestically and internationally.
