A few days ago, I did a “Before They Were Stars” feature on an old TVOntario show called Cucumber, which featured an early appearance from a young Martin Short. I remarked that John Candy had also made an early appearance on this show, but that no clips seemed to be available on Youtube. Well, a very helpful reader named Paul Robertson directed me towards the TVOntario website where they have a vintage clip posted. So without any further ado, here’s a young, slim John Candy playng a superhero called “The Weatherman” (and singing!) on Cucumber.
