Did this show have a talking moose on the wall? If not which show on CBC had a talking moose on the wall. I believe there was an old guy in it who wore a red and white pokadotted bow tie and an apron, it took place in a corner store?

i think you're thinking Puttnam's Prairie Emporium which aired on CTV
