Worzel Gummidge

Worzel Gummidge is a TV series starring Jon Pertwee that aired from 1979 until 1981. It later had two more series (in New Zealand, titled Worzel Gummidge Down Under) in 1989.

It was about a scarecrow called Worzel Gummidge (Jon Pertwee) that could come to life. He then became friends with brother and sister John and Sue Peters (Jeremy Austin and Charlotte Coleman).  They often got themselves into messes and had to get themselves out of them. Worzel Gummidge could change his head and was in love with Aunt Sally (Una Stubbs).

Though this show is quite weird and creepy at times, it has a strong heart and is very funny. I suggest checking it out.

An app based on the series was recently made, which makes me wonder if there might be a reboot in the future…
