WORZEL GUMMIDGE SEASONS 1-4
Worzel Gummidge (Jon Pertwee) is a walking, talking scarecrow that lives on Scatterbrook Farm, where he stands in Ten Acre field. He was made by The Crowman and he is able to convince other people that he is human. Worzel has a collection of different heads for his different moods and he lives with his Aunt Sally (Una Stubbs), a giant doll , also able to pass as a real person. Worzel befriended children John and Susan Peters who came to stay during the holidays on the Braithwaites fram.
Worzel lands John and Susan in trouble when he is being mischievous, as he goes into a sulk and becomes a normal lifeless scarecrow. This lead others to blame the two children for all the trouble Worzel causes. Worzel Gummidge originally appeared in a series of books by Barbara Euphan Todd. The series ran for 4 seasons on ITV between 1979 and 1981 and immediately became a cult classic
A CUP O’ TEA AN’ A SLICE O’ CAKE
Wily old Worzel looks destined to spend a cold christmas alone in Ten Acres field when The Crowman bans him from scarecrow celebrations because he deserts his post. However, Worzel does not stay put for long and as he searches in the snow for Aunt Sally to invite to the Scarecrow Ball, he meets his old friend Saucy Nancy (Barbara Windsor) travelling on a pirate ship to star in pantomime. He is challenged to a hilarious sulking contest by a belligerent Scottish scarecrow, Bogle McNeep (Billy Connolly) who, with his men, is heading back up north because he hates christmas. Worzel eventually wins his reprieve from The Crowman and joins in the festive frivolity and fun of the Scarecrow Ball. Now fully restored from the original film negative, get to see this classic Christmas Special in its full glory once again!
WORZEL GUMMIDGE DOWN UNDER SEASONS 1-2

The show ran for a further 2 seasons totalling another 22 episodes, with the first series being written by the original writers Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall.
