MADCAP puppet Emu is making a TV comeback — with Rod Hull’s son.
The giant bird with the huge beak, which notoriously attacked Michael Parkinson, is getting his own show — an ITV sitcom for children.
In the 1970s Emu and Hull senior became a national institution with prime-time audiences of more than 11million.
But Hull grew to loathe the infamous bird.
He died in 1999 aged 63 after falling off the roof of his house while fixing the TV aerial.
His son Toby, 28, an actor, took over as the puppet’s sidekick and has appeared with Emu in pantomimes.
Emu will return in a 26-episode sitcom, aimed at six to 11-year-olds.
The series will be broadcast in 2007 and is made by the company behind Big Brother.
Executive producer Christopher Pilkington said: “Having worked with Rod Hull in the past it is a particular thrill and pleasure to be reacquainted with the extraordinary Emu.”
He added: “I am delighted to be working with Toby and Emu. Chat show hosts be warned — the beak is back.”
Rod, whose career begain in Australia, became a multi-millionaire thanks to Emu but went bankrupt in 1994.
