Emu (puppet)

Emu is a puppet emu given to Rod Hull in the 1960s while he was presenting a children's breakfast television programme in Australia. Hull adopted the mute puppet for his cabaret act, and took it with him to the United Kingdom when he returned in 1970. While on stage, the character had a mischievous persona and often attacked the celebrity guests for comic effect.Rod and Emu appeared on several episodes of The Hudson Brothers' comedy show in the United States.[citation needed]
