Not Canadian, but living only 7 miles from the border gives me an advantage. While not familiar with all of them, I do know the meaning of many.

Great!! I don't know them all(?Frings,FestiveSpeical..?)-as I am from the West Coast.
We love Stompin' Tom's Cdn.places music CD-took it out from the library this summer-we will have to get it . I know someone who went to his concert this summer and said it was Great!! Also Mr.Dressup is the BEST!(who needed Mr.Rogers??)
Don't forget: BTO and since RD put in some kids performers don' t forget Raffi & Al Simmons-kids performers extraordinaire (altho.Raffi has gone a bit too 'green').
I will try and think of some more old,typical Cdn.things. CC where are you from?

Sorry Brenda, how could I forget Raffi?? Been singing his stuff for MANY years in daycare! Also, since you're from the West Coast, I should've mentioned Charlotte Diamond as well, even some Americans might be familiar with her as she does alot of stuff in Spanish for kids.
BTW, CC is from the Montreal area too, we discovered we grew up in the same area, went to the same school, although several years apart!

I grew up with Mr. Dress-up, Casey and Finnagin. My kids loved him too. Loved it when he went into the Tickle Trunk! My kids still watch Degrassi Reruns. They love the Coffee Crisps, while when I go up north I stock up on Cherry Blossoms. The families favorite chicken is of course, Ste. Hebert, two within an hours drive from here. I go to the Costco in Sherbrooke to buy the sauce, just cuz you've gotta have some when that craving hits.
Of course, there is also the sugar pie and meat pies, that we are lucky enough to get once in awhile when the French Canadian side of the family bakes some up. Poutine is the best, as is the smoked meat sandwiches, you just can't get those in the states.

I better get a shopping list together and head to Quebec.
