    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    20-odd years later, Geoffrey Bayldon went on to do the voice interventions on Paul Hardcastle's The Wizard. Later still, he was the nutty professor character on bonkers game show, Fort Boyard.
    Mrs Ale here, Catweazel was a favourite of mine, but the absolute best was Worzel Gummidge with the brilliant Jon Pertwee, ah what a programme. And of course Geoffrey Bayldon played the Crowman in that too.

    ...and 'Q' in the original Casino Royale. Worzel Gummidge Down Under (filmed in New Zealand) was to kick start the career of the man behind the special effects, Peter Jackson.

    I can just about remember going to the theatre on a coach from junior school to see Worzel Gummidge with Jon Pertwee. Not sure which theatre to be honest

    Perhaps he hypnotised you with his glowing blue crystal?

    Indeed. These were good too:

    Batman
    Spiderman
