YouTube channel encore+ has resurrected several classic Canadian TV shows including The Littlest Hobo, Degrassi Junior High, Mr. Dressup, and Are You Afraid of the Dark?
The new YouTube channel arrives via the Canadian Media Fund and Google Canada. Fans of these classic Canadian shows have been asking for an avenue to watch them for years, so this partnership is here to deliver.
“We discovered that there are about 22,000 titles of Canadian content, financed by the public sector, that was not available to the public because it was stuck in analog,” said Canada Media Fund CEO Valerie Creighton.
“We can’t let Netflix rule everything,” said 45-year-old actor Pat Mastroianni, who played Joey Jeremiah on Degrassi. “By having this channel available to fans, it’s going to be high quality. You get to see my pimples in high definition.”
Everybody get ready, The Zits are here.
