Mr Dressup

Show Summary

Mr. Dressup (Ernie Coombs) and his puppet friends enjoy a mixture of stories, crafts, songs, drawing and dressing up. Daily, Mr. Dressup invites children into his creative world, and makes them feel safe, important and valued. Mr. Dressup teaches children about morality and tolerance, and opens up a world of imagination for them to enter and explore. Mr. Dressup was a long-running children's show in Canada on CBC-TV, which originally started as a short spin off of the children's show 'Butternut Square'. When Butternut Square was cancelled due to budget constrains, Ernie Coombs presented a new improved (and much more budget friendly) version called Mr. Dressup. The show went through a major change after Judith Lawrence, the main puppeteer responsible for Casey and Finnigan, went into semi-retirement. After that, 'Casey and Finnigan' episodes were filmed only for a couple weeks each year, leaving the rest of the year to welcome in a host of new puppets and characters like Chester the crow, Alex, Truffles, Granny and grand-daughter Annie, and Lorenzo the raccoon. The show successfully ran for 30 years (1967-1996)moreless
