In 1963, Rogers moved to Toronto, where he was contracted by CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) to develop his debut in front of the camera, the 15-minute children's program Misterogers, which, though popular with children, ran for just three seasons. Many of his famous sets: Trolley, Eiffel Tower, the "tree", and "castle", were created by CBC designers. While in Toronto, Rogers brought to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood his friend and understudy Ernie Coombs, who would go on to create Mr. Dressup, a very successful and long-running children's show on CBC, and similar in many ways. Mr. Dressup also used some of the songs that would be featured on Rogers' later programs. Coombs was a puppeteer and voice actor on Misterogers. When Rogers returned to the United States, Coombs remained in Canada and was in the cast of the CBC's replacement for Misterogers, Butternut Square, on CBC TV between October 19, 1964, and February 10, 1967. He then starred in his show, Mister Dressup, from 1967 to 1996.
