Casey and Finnagen


What the *beep* happened to Casey and Finnagen? you know the little girl puppet and her dog that lived in the treehouse in Mr. Dressup's backyard... they were significant characters on the show and then one year they just disappeared and never mentioned again, it kinda freaked me out when I was a kid.

I always thought Casey was a boy. I guess they replaced them because, maybe, the show got tired of them and wanted a change.

The puppeter wanted to retire, so they gradually phased Casey and Finnagen out so that the children wouldn't be scared for life. I however immediately noticed their dissapearanc... it made me very sad

I was a fan of the show in the very early 80's.... I was watching it with a year old girl my Mom day-cared and asked her where Casey and Finnagen went. Her answer was simple "They died." I hardly doubt they were killed off, I guess it's like polar 20 said, the puppeteer wanted to retire.
Still, I wish they found someone else. To me it would be like replacing Ernie after Jim Henson died. You
just don't!

I know this is 4 years old but I believe my father told me the way they officially did it on the show was that eventually Casey went to school. But the puppeteer wanted to retire, but that is how the characters were written out.

Casey and Finnagen's puppeteer moved to Hornby Island in the Gulf Islands in BC.
