Preview: Worzel Gummidge (The Complete Restored Edition Bluray)

Jon Pertwee stars as Worzel Gummidge, the lovable scarecrow of Scatterbrook Farm. When children John and Sue move to the countryside, they learn that life is never dull with Worzel around.

The restless scarecrow dreams of a life away from his post in Ten Acre Field and often wanders off into mischief. Whether getting his heart broken by the creaking fairground doll Aunt Sally (Una Stubbs) or disobeying his maker, the eccentric old Crowman (Geoffrey Bayldon), Worzel is lucky to have his young friends on hand to help rescue him from trouble.

Based on the stories of Barbara Euphan Todd, Worzel Gummidge was produced by Southern Television and ran for four series between 1979 and 1981, enchanting audiences of all ages. Enjoy the first time the entire series now fully restored from the original negatives and packed full of incredible bonus material, both old and new….
