Ernie Coombs (a.k.a. Mr. Dressup) was a staple of CBC's morning schedule for an incredible 32 years. Along with TV pals Casey and Finnegan, the kindly Mr. Dressup entertained generations of Canadian children with simple crafts, sing-alongs and trips to the "tickle trunk" for costumes. The program was produced from 1967 to 1996 and was rebroadcast for another decade.

They decide to make a magic picture and Mr. Dressup demonstrates how to make one. Mr. Dressup decides to make pasta for lunch. He shows the different kinds and shapes of pasta, and then he makes his own pasta from dough using a pasta maker. Casey invites his friend George over for lunch, and Mr. Dressup shows how to make fancy placemats out of paper towels and food colouring. Mr. Dressup, Casey and Finnegan play Simon Says.
