5.0 out of 5 stars Kids TV doesn't get any better than this!!!, 20 Nov 2002
Worzel Gummidge 'Down Under' was originally written as the 'Irish Adventures' of Worzel Gummidge but the contract fell through and the series was filmed in New Zealand instead. Worzel and Aunt Sally are still superbly played by Jon Pertwee and Una Stubbs, the only real character difference is that the Crowman is played by Bruce Phillips and not Geoffrey Bayldon. He is the Crowman for New Zealand and credits the English Crowman as his superior so the storyline works perfectly. The major difference in this series is that there is far more of a plot being established throughout. The evil travelling Scarecrow maker kidnaps Aunt Sally and Worzel has to go to the rescue. The evil Scarecows and the scenery are quite frightening but the comedy element lightens the darkness. I cannot recommend this enough, the acting is superb. The only downside is the lack of the real Crowman as the new one needs a crystal ball in order to find out where Worzel is, the real Crowman needed no such object!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome acount of the Calgary legends life and times., 22 May 2002
The first half of the book is a fascinating look at Stu's life. Fom his childhood to growing up to being a wrestling Outlaw. The first part of the book is endorsed by Bret Hart but towards the end of the book the family politics come into play. A fascinating read and the pictures included are worth the price of the book alone. Pics include Bret, Owen, Bulldog, Pillman all the calgary greats.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Kids TV show of all time!!!, 29 Aug 2001
Anyone who loved Rainbow as a kid should buy this DVD. Highlights include Zippy & George in the bath, Zippy & George dressed up as Batman & Robin, Ernie Wise teaching Zippy how to tell jokes and sadly Rod, Jane & Freddy get a look in as well. Highly recommended!
