2Has four children 2 boys and 2 girls: John, Harrison Thomas, Emily and Charlie and they live in Agoura Hills, California.
3Attended McMaster University.
4Older brother of musician/composer Ian Thomas.
5Thomas and Rick Moranis originally created the characters Bob and Doug McKenzie in protest against government requirements for "identifiable Canadian content" in domestically produced television programming. The skits, as an SCTV program "The Great White North" featured two dim witted brothers who combined as many negative Canadian stereotypes as possible. Despite this, they became so popular that the skits were included in the U.S. version of the program.
