 Christine McGlade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Her "character" on the show frequently had to deal with annoyances and interruptions while she tried to host, mainly from her chatty sidekick, Lisa Ruddy, and from Ross the stage director (played by Les Lye), who would often and gleefully place her in unfortunate situations.
Moose's younger sister actually played a younger version of Moose herself in a detention sketch, and her younger brother was written into a sketch in the doctor's office in which he was brought into the office with a stomachache after eating all of Christine's makeup.
Les Lye has said that he suggested to YCDTOTV co-creator Roger Price that Moose's sister could replace Moose herself on the show once Moose got too old, because she looked quite a bit like her older sister, but Price immediately nixed the idea.
