Emu's Pink Windmill Show
This show was based in a Pink Windmill. Emu and Rod would always be trying to outwit "Grotbags", a very large witch and her helper, Croc.
The programme had a live studio audience that were always yelling things to help Rod and Emu out.
Rod Hull made a number of programmes with his Emu, of which The Pink Windmill Show, EBC1: Emu's Broadcasting Company and Emu's World are probably the best remembered. There was also a spin-off series for the character Grotbags.
Rod and Emu's UK debut was on an episode of Saturday Variety on 22nd November 1972. Emu was an instant hit, so got a regular slot on Happy House during 1973, finally getting their own series in 1975 with EBC1: Emu's Broadcasting Company.
Sadly, Rod Hull died in 1999, falling off his roof whilst trying to adjust a TV aerial.
