Yes You Can was a Canadian children's television series broadcast on CBC Television from 1980 to 1983. Hosted by singer Kevin Gillis, and co-hosted by Trevor Bruneau and Tammy Bourne, the half-hour live-action series was sports-themed and encouraged fitness and good health. Also featured were the comedic Coach Cuddles Ford (played by Patrick Ford), and two animated characters, "Harry Hog" and "Body Man", voiced by Michael Magee.
The show was written by Jack Hutchinson and Jamie Wayne, produced by Bill Hunt, directed by Ron Piggott and executive produced by Michael Lansbury.
Kevin Gillis went on to create and produce The Christmas Raccoons animated special - which led to The Raccoons on Ice and the Raccoons animated series. Many of the songs Gillis used the Yes You Can series were later re-recorded and used in the Raccoons animated series.
