About Dennis Anthony Leonard Simpson

Denis Simpson (born Dennis Anthony Leopold Simpson in St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica, November 4, 1950, died October 22, 2010) was a Canadian actor and singer, best known as a host of the TV series Polka Dot Door. He was also an original member of the singing group The Nylons.

"He's sort of skinny, his eyes are too big, and he's black - not what one would assume as attributes for a television celebrity in Canada," noted The Globe and Mail in 1984. "Yet for thousands of youngsters, Denis Simpson and TVOntario's Polka Dot Door are the highlights of their day. He sings, he dances and talks to those stuffed animals - and the kids love him for it."
