Mr. Dressup to Degrassi: 42 Years Of Legendary Toronto Kids TV @ Myseum on Tuesday, May 23,2023

By A.J.Lam

Myseum presents the wonderful playful story of legendary and influential Toronto Kids TV since the 1950’s from which many stars have emerged, including Drake, John Candy, and Tonya Williams.

“The TV shows of your childhood hit closer to home than you might think.

From 1952 to 1994, Toronto was a global player in a golden era of children’s television programming. For over four decades, our city brought together innovative thought leaders, passionate creators and unexpected collaborations – forming a corner of the television industry unlike any other in the world.

Toronto etched itself into our collective consciousness with shows like Mr. Dressup, Today’s Special, The Friendly Giant, Polka Dot Door, Degrassi, and more.

Journey through Toronto’s heyday of children’s TV shows in this playful exhibition.”
