Mr. Dressup to go off the air: "

CBC Arts: Mr. Dressup to go off the air: "

The tickle trunk will be closed for the last time in September, as CBC officially retires Mr. Dressup.

Ernie Coombs with Casey and Finnegan — no more reruns for the much-loved show.

As of July 3, the show moves from every weekday at 11 a.m. to Sunday morning only and the last broadcast of the much-loved children's show takes place Sept. 3.

The late Ernie Coombs began the show in 1967, delighting children with puppets Casey and Finnegan and a tickle trunk full of costumes and intriguing objects.

The last episode of the show was made in 1996 and it has been rerun ever since. Coombs died in 2001 of a stroke."
