Retired Charlie Bears
CHARLIE BEARS GUMMIDGE
Size: 14" (36CM)
Wurzel Gummidge is a British-New Zealand childrens sitcom, that began in 1979, based on books by the English author Barbara Euphan Todd. Jon Pertwee played Wurzel Gummidge, who is a walking, talking scarecrow, that lived in Ten Acre Field. He had a collection of interchangable heads and he had his own language called Worzelese, with famous catchphrases such as "a cup o' tea a slice o' cake", "I'll be bum-swizzled" and "Boccy Mcoo". He was madly in love with Aunt Sally, a vain, cruel-hearted, rosy-cheeked fairground doll, who thought that she was far too good for him.
So the Charlie Bears GUMMIDGE is named after the scarecrow and this really is a raggedy, scraggly bear!
The mid-brown and fudge-coloured fur is long, wavy and wild and looks like it needs a good brush. The muzzle looks slightly mottled, with a big hand-stitched nose and mouth and dark eyes peep out from under the fur. The paws are stitched and a lace collar is a great accessory.
He will enjoy plenty of strokes and you can rub him up the wrong way, as he will always have a bad hair day and is meant to have the "dragged out of a hedge backwards" look!
Look out for PERTWEE, who is a larger version of this bear.
Gummidge is from the Charlie Bears 2020 Collection.
