Worzel Gummidge was a long running children's TV series about an animated scarecrow (played by former Doctor Who star Jon Pertwee) popular in the early 1980s . Marvel UK published Worzel's comic strip adventures in first a short lived monthly title and then a weekly aimed at a younger age range, over the space of a couple of years. Grandreams, who published the Marvel UK Annuals, also published a Worzel Gummidge Annual with some strip content in 1982. Worzel's adventures also ran for a time in Look-In, drawn by Mike Noble.
