Calling Alligator Al. Coombs Celebrated by Google.

Google Canada recognized a great icon of children’s culture in this country by featuring Ernie Coombs on his 85th Birthday. Coombs was a regular part of my two channel experience as a child in the 70s – known to be the father figure we all wanted. Ernie Coombs starred as Mr. Dressup from the show’s launch in 1967 until the final episode was taped in 1996. The show, which also featured Casey and Finnegan, was rebroadcast until 2006.

Loved that old tickle trunk.
