'''Get Set For Life''' was a children's programming block on Creator/{{CBC}} that ran from January 2000 to September 2003. It featured Creator/AlysonCourt (of ''Series/TheBigComfyCouch'' fame) and Michael Clark as hosts. They would hang out in Alyson's attic, do activities and [[BreakingTheFourthWall interact with the viewers]]. Their segments would frame programming such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', ''WesternAnimation/CliffordTheBigRedDog'' and ''The Save-Ums''. The block was named for a partnership between CBC's childrens programming department, the Invest in Kids foundation, and Canadian Living magazine. It's fondly remembered by Canadian late 90's-early 2000's kids, but there's hardly any information ''at all'' about it circulating online, let alone any footage from the block.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: It's hard to find so much as a ''mention'' of the block online, and footage from it didn't even make its way to Website/YouTube until April 2015 ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxGKinzOUlo here]]). If you have at least some of the segments recorded on VHS during its lifetime, you'd better hold on to those recordings, and having them converted into computer files and then uploaded to [=YouTube=] is strongly recommended!
** According to ThatOtherWiki there was also a rare CD pressed during the block's run entitled ''Get Set to Sing With Alyson and Michael''. Hopefully there are a few copies of that CD floating around the yard sale and/or thrift store circuits. (One cut from the album, "Teddy Bear Search", is included as a music video in the linked bumper collection.)

* TooGoodToLast: Although the ''Kids CBC'' block that followed was arguably an EvenBetterSequel. ''Kids Canada'', on the other hand, suffered the opposite, due to having an array of puppet hosts in place of the human hosts (puppet hosts which as of 2015 have been largely phased out).
