When are we going to get another one of these guys?
22 July 2005 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

Mr dressup is the greatest guy I know. when he died in 2001, I may not have been crying on the outside, but on the inside, i was bawling like a 3 year old.

So, Mr. dressup is your average neighbor who loves children (And not in the way we automatically assume today) he lives in a house, and he knows tons of people, including puppets, children, and other people. He usually invites them over (or they just pop up in his house) and they make crafts, dress up in costumes from the tickle trunk, or sing. and even sometimes watch a short video that was filmed in the 70's. all in all, Mr dressup ends the show with the legendary line, "till next time, bye-bye, from, whoever is with him, and me, Mr. dressup! bye. then we get to hear a jaunty piano tune which fills any Canadian with joy.

10/10
