The Muddle-headed Wombat

Looking for some adventurous souls.

I recently received an article from a dear friend, entitled “Muddled Up” by Jon Casimir.  It appeared in the 5 JAN 11 issue of the Sydney Morning Herald’s “Summer” supplement.

The article is about Ms. Ruth Parks and her creation “The Muddle-headed Wombat.”  Whilst almost unknown outside of Oz, it was a very successful radio show, 3139 episodes over about 3 decades, and 13 books detailing the adventures or misadventures of WOMBAT, TABBY, & MOUSE.

I have a couple of the books sent to me by wonderful friends.  They are delightful.

In his article Mr. Casimir wonders if anything can be done to save WOMBAT, TABBY, & MOUSE.  My friend was desirous of the same outcome.

Now  would it not be possible to, via internet radio, do new episodes, in conjunction with Ms. Parks estate, of “The Muddle-headed Wombat.”  Today, the shows could originate from almost anywhere.

So is there anyone out there interested in giving it a go in order to save WOMBAT, TABBY, & MOUSE from oblivion?

I’m trying to contact Mr. Casimir.  He may well be able to provide some assistance or publicity on this.

    Well, Mr. Wombat. I’ll admit you say some dumb things here, like when you insult Republicans.
    But I wouldn’t exactly say you’re “Muddle-Headed”.

    If you don’t mind Wombat, Tabby, and Mouse turned into Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham type characters, then I’ll do it.

  2. The Wombat Says:

    No politics now. The MHW is a delightful series of stories for kids.

    It is a shame to have the characters lost to time.

    Some of the books are available on Amazon.
