Based on the children's books, this series follows the adventures of Worzel Gummidge, the talking scarecrow. Worzel is a bit of a rascal, but is still willing to help out his human friends from the nearby village of Scatterbrook.Written by
This series had a long journey to the screen. Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall intended to make it as a film and wrote a script. They asked Jon Pertwee to play the role but they were not able to raise the money or the distribution. Pertwee asked them to write a pilot for television but the BBC and Thames Television turned it down before Southern Television picked it up. See more »
In Series 1, during the closing credits, when Worzel falls backwards on his post, he has an umbrella hanging from it. From Series 2-4, during the closing credits, Worzel carries his umbrella and hangs it on his post. But before he falls backwards, forwards, or down, the umbrella is not hanging on the post.

This is a fantastic children's TV programme. It's about the title character; a walking, talking, messy, clumsy scarecrow called Worzel who comes to life in Scatterbrook Farm. This programme includes a fine cast including Geoffrey Bayldon, Charlotte Coleman, Mike Berry and Una Stubbs as the ONE AND ONLY Aunt Sally (Worzel's INTENDED!) Fantastic show and a 10/10 job no question!!
