An abridged version of the original Gummidge, not the one re-written for television. This is the first story in which John and Susan discover that Worzel the scarecrow is alive. Mrs Bloomsbury Barton's snobbish bossiness, the Village fair and Worzel's tricks are the stuff of these adventures. Jon Pertwee, the original (wonderful) TV Worzel, creates all the voices from the quavering aristocratic tones of Mrs Bloomsbury Barton to the rustic language of the gypsies. Best of all are Worzel's sulks, his mischievous moods and his scarecrow dialect. A classic recording.
