Of all the things to remake who decided to make this!
It was creepy the first time as a child (many many years of nightmares)
Why would anyone want to watch a sinister scarecrow with multiple personality disorder, hardly festive.
What next? Freddy Krueger and Mr Tumble do Lapland?
YABU = Worzel is lovely and Aunt Sally a feminist icon.
YANBU = it was terrifying then and we should never EVER revisit it.
fucking scary scruffy bastard
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I LOVED Worzel Gummidge. My mum even took us to some sort of Worzel exhibition somewhere in the 80s. I used to borrow the Worzel Gummidge LP from the library, featuring classics like “A Cup of Tea and a Slice of Cake”. Think I was an odd child.
The remake looks horrible!

I loved Worzel Gummidge as a kid but was a little bit scared when he changed his head. It was a classic though!
I still say to my kids "let's have a cup of tea and a slice of cake!"
Also vaguely recall the song where he spells out Worzel.
I saw a brief clip of the remake and OMG! he looks effing terrifying!!!! I think if my kids watch it, they'll get nightmares just from looking at Worzel. At least the old Worzel just looked like a scruffy old man, not bloody creepy!
Would love it if Sean Pertwee took on the role. A very sexy Worzel!

My DS was about 2 and absolutely loved Worzel we took him to some country show and he was there in person talking to everyone and he was soo nice.
Son closed his eyes buried his head in my shoulder and was terrified.
I hope he doesn’t get flashbacks now it’s being redone
