With only thirty-nine episodes Going Great was a short lived but interesting magazine-style series program hosted by Chris Makepeace. The premise of the show was simple, every Tuesday and Thursday viewers were given the opportunity to meet talented and creative young people.
In each episode Chris Makepeace would introduce viewers to extraordinary kids all over Canada. Sometimes he would get a little help from his roving reporters, Megan Follows (Matt & Jenny / Anne of Green Gables) and Keanu Reeves (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures), racking up three episodes each.
In America Going Great aired on Nickelodeon from October 4, 1983 to February 14, 1984.
