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' farm. 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 comedy ran for 4 series on ITV between 1979 and 1981 and immediately became a cult classic.
