Mr. Dressup Would Be 85 today


In Google's tradition of continuing to acknowledge birthdays of someone after they are long dead, today they honoured Ernie Coombs (1927-2001) who would be 85 if he were still alive.

Weird...He always seemed that old when I was a kid. Anyway, the show was never the same once Casey and Finnigan left. Also, I always thought Casey was a girl.

And so far he hasn't been outed as a pedophile!

And yet my requests for a Google Doodle of Buck Shot continue to fall on deaf ears...

When I was a kid I thought my grade 2 teacher was old as dirt, in hindsight, she was likely about 23 years old. When your a kid, all adults over 20 may as well be 50.

I grew up in provinces far east of Alberta and never heard of Buck Shot until now. He does deserve a google doodle. A shout out from the Calgary Herald falls a little short!
