Let's Go was a Canadian children's TV series taped at the CKY-TV studios in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It premiered September 1, 1976 and ran for 214 episodes through 1987.

The series was developed through the Manitoba Theatre Workshop, some of whose students, including Michael Hearn (as Mikey Simpson) were featured in the cast.[1]

Each 30-minute episode starred host Janis Dunning and a rotating cast of five children. Alumni include actor Scott Bairstow, former Shooting Star Theatre, NYC owner Scott Witty, film director Noam Gonick, and Aqua Books owner Kelly Hughes. Skits were written and performed by Janis and the kids. Songs were pre-recorded at 21st Century Sound in Winnipeg, and later lipsynched by the cast.

The music on the program was written by Victor Davies, who for Let's Go and The Rockets (Janice's next project) wrote more than 600 songs. The theme was co-written and performed by Chad Allan.

This program was broadcast throughout Canada on CTV and ATV.
