Another Gem From Canada!
6 August 1999 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Before there was Barney, Sesame Street, or even the latest sensation Arthur there was a children's program that entertained generations of children. This show was called "Mr. Dressup" and entertained children for 29 years. As a child I remember fond memories of this series. This show was one of the truly greatest in not just Canadian television but internationally as well. This show may be gone from the networks but if you live in Canada you can still catch it along with another great Canadian children's gem that is "The Friendly Giant" back to back on the Canadian cable channel SHOWCASE.
