Does anyone else here remember this show? I remember CBC reran it but that was years and years ago like the late 1970's. Butternut Square is worth watch alone just for seeing where Mr. Dressup's character came from. Ernie Coombs was so great as Mr. Dressup and it's great to see him in this show so young and new to the character. This show was a typical low budget Canadian show but the characters were great and it was such a good show for kids (like me at the time it first came out). I wish this show would be re-run again so that I can tape it for my grandkids to watch one day. If you get a chance to see this show, or tape it, or buy it on DVD if it ever comes out which would be great, do it, you won't be sorry, it was a very good show that the whole family will enjoy.
