Vacation Time (Series) (1962-1968)

A summer replacement for regular children's programming, Vacation Time presented films, cartoons, and live broadcasts with special guests.

In 1963, the show expanded and was produced in a number of cities. Toronto on Monday, Vancouver on Tuesday, Winnipeg on Wednesday. Thursdays the show alternated between Ottawa and Montreal. On Fridays, the show returned to Toronto for the first seven weeks, and then went to Halifax for the remainder of the season.

The final summer, the show concentrated on productions from outside Toronto, and included St. John's among the contributing centres.
