Bob and Doug McKenzie are a pair of fictional Canadian brothers who hosted “The Great White North”, a sketch which was introduced on SCTV for the show’s third season when it moved to CBC Television in 1980. Bob is played by Rick Moranis and Doug is played by Dave Thomas. The duo revived the act in television commercials for Pizza Hut and the Molson Brewing Company.
The [Pizza Hut] chain was founded in 1958 by Dan and Frank Carney. Additional restaurants were opened, with the first franchise unit opening in 1959 in Topeka, Kansas.
