Reviews

All seven episodes from the first series of the TV show about the amiable, head-changing scarecrow. In 'Worzel's Washing Day' Worzel (Jon Pertwee) meets John and Sue, a young brother and sister on holiday at Scatterbrook Farm. 'Home Fit for a Scarecrow' sees Worzel attempting to furnish his home by stealing from the nearby village. 'Aunt Sally' has Worzel set out to rescue a forlorn Aunt Sally (Una Stubbs) from the village fete. 'The Crowman' finds Worzel asking for a 'handsome head' so that he might start courting. 'A Little Learning' sees Worzel attempt to retrieve his 'clever head' from John and Sue's school. 'Worzel Pays a Visit' has John and Sue discover that Aunt Sally is working as a maid for Mrs Bloomsbury-Barton. Finally, in 'The Scarecrow Hop', Worzel and Aunt Sally go out dancing together.

Pertwee in a magnificent role. This series was great. Period. The fact that it looks a bit grainy (due to its age and probably poor storage) just adds to its charm. Geoff Baildon is also fab in his role of The Crowman. All the acting is great (espec. the late and lately great Charlotte Coleman) and if you remember this being good as a wee child in short pants, then you'll think it's even better as an adult. And Una Stubbs really deseved a bafta or something for her work on this. Brilliant!!!!! AND, if you have kids on the premises, they'll lap it up just as you did two decades before. You just can't keep a classic down, you know.....

Our daughter, who is now 31, loved Worzel Gummidge immensely in the 80's, so I bought this not only as a happy reminder, but also for her own kids, and our grandkids, to enjoy today.
And after enjoying an episode and a half, (just to check the DVD was OK, you understand), I must say the characters have become immortal, the actor's played their roles so well it is no wonder Worzel was such a huge hit and enjoyed so many series'.
Indeed, there was a Worzel 'bendy' figure, (which Motorhead's guitarist, also a Wurzel, had fixed to his amps whilst with the band), and even Worzel Annual's, which would always be on the daughter's Xmas list.
Geoffrey Baildon as The Crowman, Una Stubbs as Aunt Sally and every other performer were chosen extremely well, and I feel sure when reports are returned the grandchildren will have fallen in love with them all over again.
Wonderfully nostalgic as these episodes still are, I can't help but agree with my fellow reviewer's comments about the transfer quality. The colour has suffered somewhat as the copying may have been carried out on a low budget, (or whatever?), but it definitely needs attending to; perhaps this will take place if the DVD's are released at a later date on Blue-Ray?

As an interesting (?) aside, Worzel visited our town of Poole, here in Dorset at the height of the '80's Worzel-mania, to appear on the then flattened old gasworks site in the town, upon which Sainsbury's now stands. Daughter, Natalie, was beside herself with glee at seeing Worzel arrive in a model T Ford car, and get himself on board a real live elephant!! The day was crowned when Worzel walked around the small arena to shake hands with as many kids as possible, (there were hundreds!), and I captured him shaking her hand, and the best parts of the remainder of his PA, on an 8mm silent movie - I wonder if it's still tucked away somewhere?

Worth every penny.
Watching Worzel Gummidge again brings back all my childhood memories from when I was a young lad.
There is a whole generation of youngsters out there who have never heard of Worzel Gummidge and they simply don't know what they are missing.
My 5-year-old daughter remained glued to the T.V screen for all 7 episode's and this DVD hardly ever leaves my DVD player.
My only grumble is the DVD still has the original TV footage which is sometimes a little grainy and the colours are somewhat washed out (hence the 4 *'s).
A must for anyone with younger children and there is plenty of adults who will love this DVD too.

I am now 30 and Worzel Gummidge was my favorite program as a child ao could not resist having another watch. Not only are the stories as good now as they were then the moral to the stories are right on. Aunt Sally is even more horrible to Worzel than I remember!
I introduced it to my 9 year old Step-Daughter and she loves and watches it over and over and has perfected Worzeleez and The Scarecrow hop!

Now first a brief outline of the story..... First there was a little Scarecrow called Worzel Gummidge (played by the late and great Jon Pertwee) who's job as it happens is to be a scarecrow in Ten Acre Field but he on the other hand has other ideas. He takes every opportunity to leave the crows to have the field and he gets up to many adventures with the help of his two titchy human friends (Sue is played by the late Charlotte Coleman and John played by Jeremy Austin). Worzel was made by his father figure "The Crowman" (played by Geoffrey Bayldon of Catweazle fame) who makes all of the Scarecrows in the land and with a little country magic names them and they come to life. All the scarecrows are very respectfull of the Crowman for giving them life and never lets him down (all except Worzel that is).

Worzels adventures are peppered by great characters such as the love of his life Aunt Sally or to give her full name "Aunt Roll Up Roll Up Three Balls A Penny Sally" who whilst being Worzels true love is also cruel and spiteful to him at every oportunity, but they do say love is blind and that is surely the case with Worzel. The characters in the adventures are played by now famous actors and actresses such as Aunt Sally (Una Stubbs), Saucy Nancy (Barbara Windsor), Sue and John's Dad (Mike Berry) Sergent Beetroot (Bill Maynard), Dolly Clothespeg (Lorraine Chase) and the lovely Meg Jones as Mrs Braithwaite the farmers wife and even some small roll's for the likes of Bill Pertwee, Joan Simms, Mike Read and Billy Connolly. So a Star Studded cast in a very enjoyable story and littered with a moral undertone to a majority of the shows.

Now who would enjoy the show ?
