Guess the Actor

The video above is from the TV show The King of Kensington. You haven't heard of it? It was a Canadian sitcom that ran from 1975 to 1980. The clip is from an episode called "Scout's Honour" that aired on December 18, 1975. Can you recognize who played the "boy scout"?

Yes, this was Mike Myers when he was only 12 years old. He had already appeared in quite a few TV commercials, which he'd been doing since the age of two. This was his first role in a TV series. Myers later joined The Second City Canadian touring company right out of high school, and from there the sky was the limit. By the time he joined Saturday Night Live in 1989, he'd already been working in show biz for 23 years.

He was a cute kid! I don't remember this particular episode, although I watched this show for its entire run. I did a post on it a few years ago, found here:
