I was walking by the CBC building on Front St. and decided to pop in to see if there might be something of interest and to my surprise there was the free CBC Museum. I had no idea what to expect and when I walked through the door it was like a flashback to my childhood. Remember Mr. Dressup? The Canadian version of Mr. Rogers who would come onto our tv’s every weekday morning from 1967 to 1996 singing songs and rummaging around in his tickle trunk? To you non Canadians that isn’t a dirty joke. And don’t forget Casey his creepy little puppet friend and Finnigan the dog who lived in the treehouse. Unfortunately the puppets aren’t there but you can take a trip down memory lane and see the original treehouse.
