Each week Grotbags tried to steal Rod Hull’s aggressive emu puppet so she could use its special powers to control all the “brats” in the world. She was assisted in those shows – most incompetently – by Croc (a crocodile) and Redford (a robot).

Receiving her own show in 1992, Grotbags had new puppet friends, including Doris the Dodo and Colin the bat.

Carol Lee Scott passed away in July 2017, aged 74.
