Worzel Gummidge is a British children's fictional character who originally appeared in a series of books by the novelist Barbara Euphan Todd. A walking, talking scarecrow, Gummidge has a set of interchangeable turnip, mangel worzel and swede heads, each of which suit a particular occasion or endow him with a specific skill.
The books were adapted for radio and television a number of times, most successfully with former Doctor Who actor Jon Pertwee taking the lead role in 1979 on ITV; originally produced in the UK, but later in New Zealand
Crazy, Wacky and Hilarious, Worzel Gummidge was a great part of my television viewing youth.
Wow the Walton's. It was so dry it almost went on fire. I remember Richard Thomas who played John-Boy Walton being in a two part film of Stephen King's IT that was shown on Sky One years ago.
