Mr Rogers & Mr Dressup

May 1, 2008

When I was little I used to love watching Mr Dressup and Mr Rogers. Honestly, they both kind of creep me out now..but at the time I thought they were the best shows ever.

I remember loving when Mr Rogers would leave his house to show us some kind of random few minute video of him doing something or whatever…and my FAVORITE was one where they showed you how crayons were made. I thought it was one of the coolest things I’d ever seen. I can still see the end of the clip where a little kid holds up a crayon to their eye when it was all finished. I hated when the trolley would show up and the stupid puppets would take over the show though. Was that what most of the show consisted of? I don’t really remember anymore..but if it was..I’m not sure why it was still one of my favs. Hmn.

As for Mr Dressup..I also was an avid watcher…well, the older originalish ones at least. When there was a little kid puppet named Casey and a gray dog that lived in the backyard. My favorite part was when he’d go inside and sit at his easel and draw. I would pull out my paper and crayons and try to copy what he was doing..but never ever made anything resembling what was on his easel. I was envious of his skillz. I never liked the new puppets that took over the show in later years. They were poosackish.

I’m not sure why I’m blooging about this, but I was bored waiting to go to sleep…and just thought you’d like to know. Good night!

PS~ I’ll update my cam image soonish. I’m a slacker. Nyeh.
