    Default Worzel Gummidge

    Forgetting Dr Who, did anyone see Worzel Gummidge over Xmas with Stephen Merchant and Michael Palin.

    I thought it was brilliantly PC, ecologically sound and a great new reboot, albeit Aunt Sally was a bit crap. Plus these league of gentlemen guys get everywhere.

    Can't wait for a few more to be made.

    Not forgetting Whorty's cameo appearance as Soggy Boggart and OG's Aunt Sally. His magnum opus.

    I also believe that kicking the crutch away from a poor disabled gypsy child is now 30 years in prison as opposed to the guffaw you gave 20 years ago when she fell through that glass table.

    You were the one who laughed your tits off. Although the gingham dress might have had a bit to do with that...

    Careful MF. Mordac is triggered by kid's TV. Probably traumatised by the Telly Tubbies.

    25 years ago during the last bits of filming of Telly Tubbies we went to the set on a production day.

    Believe me the rabbits used could traumatise anyone. They needed to use Flemish Giant rabbits to ensure scale was maintained and you haven't seen anything until you've seen 10 of them in close proximity to each other
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    NLyUK would be happy! She likes a giant rabbit.

    25 years? Thanks for the reminder...

    Not a Telly Tubby, it was a long time ago and he doesn't like to talk about it, but needless to say it was a drunken night on Hampstead Heath when a man dressed as a womble took advantage. He never uses a bin anymore either.
