Bob & Doug McKenzie

This statue celebrates Second City Television (SCTV) legends Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, who played beloved characters Bob and Doug McKenzie in The Great White North segment of the iconic sketch comedy television show that aired from 1976 to 1984, as well as in the Canadian classic movie Strange Brew. Many seasons of SCTV were filmed at ITV studios in Edmonton, captivating viewers across North America and around the world with its irreverent and leading-edge humour. The Bob & Doug McKenzie characters educated a worldwide audience on humorous Canadian expressions and slang, eventually becoming beloved cultural icons. “Bob & Doug McKenzine” was generously donated to ICE District by the Allard Foundation, namesake of Edmonton business leaders and philanthropists Dr. Charles Allard and son Paul Allard, who founded ITV Studios in the 1970’s.
