Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas play the characters of Bob and Doug McKenzie.
The fictional Canadian brothers hosted The Great White North on a sketch included on SCTV's third season. The duo became a pop culture phenomenon in Canada and the United States, partially because of its play on Canadian stereotypes - such as beer, toques and interjections of 'Eh?'.
The sketch was added to the SCTV lineup in 1980 when the show moved to CBC Television and executives asked that two minutes of each broadcast include specific and identifiable Canadian content.
