Tree with Casey and Finnegan’s Treehouse

This set was the home of Casey, a mischievous and curious child, and the dog Finnegan, who never made a sound, but went along with everything Casey did. The treehouse was one of the show’s key elements, and was where most of the action took place. In 1986, it was replaced with a new tree and treehouse that were more ergonomic for puppeteers. Casey and Finnegan now live with their creator and puppeteer, Judith Lawrence.
