    Emu.

    The genius of Rod Hull was that when emu attacked people, they tried to fight off the bird, not the man.
    No longer "resting"

    I agree, Rod's struggles to control him seemed so realistic.

    I wonder whatever happened to Emu after Rod's death. He did of course sadly die after falling off his roof, while trying to adjust his TV aerial.

    I had a replica Emu puppet when I was at Uni. Oh, we had hours of fun down the pub with that!

    I’m pretty certain I watched a programme the other week that had Emu on it in a glass case, he still looked menacing even without Rod attached
