MrdressupCBC has announced today that Mr Dressup will air for the last time on September 3, 2006.  No more reruns, no more tickle trunk, no more imagination, no more Mr Dressup.

Way to go Canadian Broadcasting Corporation!

Apparently Mr Dressup encouraging imagination isn’t good enough for today’s kids.  Obviously you can tell that I am somewhat sadened by the loss.  The show has been in reruns since 1996, but I’m still a fan.  Ernie Coombs died of a stroke in 2001.

You can buy a box set of Mr. Dressup Tickle Trunk Treasures.

So long Mr Dressup, so long Casey, so long Finnegan…
