In this series, Ernie Coombes hosts this simple formated TV as Mr. Dressup. With his puppet friends, originally Casey and his dog Finnegan, he teaches pre-school subjects with games, music and simple activities. To add to the fun, Mr. Dressup would always open up his tickle trunk that contains any costume for any role he wants.Written by

One of the great Canadian icons of my youth was Mr. Dressup. I forgot all about Mr. Rodgers and Captain Kangaroo and Uncle Bobby. Mr. Dressup was where it was at when I was a kid. Ernie Combs was truly a gem to kids who were born between 1967-1996. He seemed to know exactly what kids would relate to. I always related to Casey and Finnigan. I was quite upset when the puppeteer who voiced Casey and Finnigan retired but I knew that everyone, no matter what the profession, retires when the time comes. The thing that I'll miss the most about Mr. Dressup is his smile and the way that he made me feel everytime I watched the show. I'll miss you Mr. Dressup and I hope that you'll still be doing your show in heaven. :)
