Anyone who grew up in the 1980’s is sure to remember the green witch called Grotbags.
She starred alongside Rod Hull in Emu’s World and later on in Emu’s All Live Pink Windmill Show. The plot of the show was rather simple actually. Every week we watched Grotbags try to steal Rod Hull’s arm length puppet Emu!
The actress who played Grotbags in 1981 was Carole Lee Scott and was introduced to kids TV at the time. The show was replaced in 1984 with Emu’s All Live Windmill Show which was very similar to the original show.
Do you remember Hull’s catchphrase: “There’s somebody at the door, there’s somebody at the door?” This was recited every time we heard the sneezing doorbell. And how about the camp crocodile who used to suck up to Grotbags on every show.
Here she is singing “The Money Song” back in 1983!
