In addition to green slime and pre-taped comedy skits, the premiere season had hour-long episodes that contained music videos, dance contests, and segments that were aired live. The opening animation is completely different from the 1981 (syndicated) and the 1982-90 intros. It features the Parliament Buildings instead of " The Children's Television Sausage Factory."

Episode One
Mike jumps through Kevin Somers, as later remade in the WTYO pilot, and provides the show's first introduction. We see the very first slime scene with Tim in the dungeon, including some crew laughter.
Episode Two
After asking Cindy out, and getting rejected, Tim gets the advice from David to offer to help Cindy with her homework, but, unfortunately, her homework just happens to be dressmaking.
Episode Three
Kevin introduces the program, in conceited star fashion. The announcer is shown going through a list of shows that viewers could watch, or Kevin on the link set.
Episode Four
Still handcuffed from the previous week, Jono welcomes the new cast members and starts an ego trip (with Kevin Somers gone).
Episode Five
Kevin interviews the Executive Director of the Ottawa Boys and Girls Club, and the cast presents some of their activities.
Episode Six
The cast members model the Flash Cadillac custom attire, and share the show's Nielsen ratings.
Episode Seven
Just as Mr Dime introduces the episode, the Deputy Assistant Vice President of Engineering comes in and triumphantly tells him that he's stopped "that children's program he hates so much" from airing by pulling the studio plug ... literally.
Episode Eight
Christine walks around backstage, afraid that she isn't supposed to be on the network show.
Episode Nine
When Mr. Dime emerges from the executive washroom covered in green slime, he knows the kids have been using it, as opposed to the staff privvy washroom - which doesn't really appear to be the kind of place you want to go to the bathroom in.
Episode Ten
Ross gives the kids a present from Mr. Dime - pies in the face.
Episode Eleven
Mr. Dime mandates that everyone in the building on the weekends wear a straightjacket as a security measure, including Director Geoffrey Darby and the tech crew.
Episode Twelve
After receiving high ratings weeks prior, Mr. Dime praises the program and takes full credit.
Episode Thirteen
Mr. Dime is exercising at the beginning of the program to prepare for the Meters for Millions walk and throws out his back. Sarah spends most of the show trying to give him a dose of Geritol.
Episode Fourteen
Mr. Dime starts by saying that CJOH is waiting to see if CTV will "share the program" with the rest of Canada. Sarah tells him that his previous request for a court order to fire the cast and Producer has succeeded.
