Ernie Coombs, Mr. Dressup, has died (CBC News):
"We think they're more sophisticated because their toys are a lot more sophisticated. I mean they have toys now that can do things that expensive machinery couldn't do when I was a kid. If we ever saw one of these we just wouldn't believe it. But I think the basic thing is still kids still enjoy it, they like to dress up, they like to sing simple little songs that are timeless. And they like to try to make things out of junk material. So I don't think they've changed that much."
Goodbye, sir. Thanks for providing wholesome Canadian content that I was always allowed to watch.
