"You Can’t Do That" was wholly composed by John Lennon[1][2][3]and recorded on Tuesday, 25 February 1964, in Abbey Road Studios in London, for the flip side to their single "Can’t Buy Me Love". With filming due to begin on A Hard Day’s Night, director Dick Lester needed the Beatles to provide him with new material ahead of production, and "You Can’t Do That" was used for the Scala Theatre "live performance" portion of the film, but dropped for the final cut. John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980), (born John Winston Lennon, known as John Ono Lennon) was an iconic English 20th century rock and roll songwriter and singer, best known as the founding member of The Beatles. ...

Run for Your Life is a song by The Beatles which first appeared on the 1965 album Rubber Soul. ...

Influenced by the then relatively unknown Wilson Pickett,[5] the song is essentially a twelve bar in its structure, but Lennon introduces a sung discordant flattened 3rd (F) passing note on the D7th chord, pointedly emphasising "…I told you before…" and then pushing the same note for the exasperated “Oh!” before ultimately resolving to the song's key of G[6]. Wilson Pickett (March 18, 1941 – January 19, 2006) was an American R&B/Rock and Roll and soul singer. ...

While in New York for The Ed Sullivan Show guitarist George Harrison was presented with a Rickenbacker 360 Deluxe electric 12-string guitar worth (in 1964) $900 [7][8]. Only the second one produced, it was heard for the first time on "You Can’t Do That" (although actually used for the first time on "Can't Buy Me Love" but lost in the mix) and gave the song its distinctive chiming sound.[9] It would be played extensively on the A Hard Day’s Night LP, greatly influencing Roger McGuinn, who would later form The Byrds.

YCDTOTV.com - You Can't Do That On Television (910 words)
You Can't Do That On Television was still doing okay on CJOH, and an up-and-coming children's network in the United States called Nickelodeon took interest in the show and began airing the Canadian series once a week in a line up with a plethora of other Canadian-based television programs in 1981.
You Can't Do That On Television continued as Nick's number one television show until Marc Summers began hosting another hit for Nick called Double Dare (which gave away Green Slime Shampoo and Soap as prizes) in 1986.
Although YTV stuck to a Whatever Turns You On (1979) to You Can't Do That On Television (1981-90) rotation, Nickelodeon (most of the show's source of money) aired mostly 1989-90 shows during the week with older episodes being shown on the weekend, dropping the shows ratings even more.
