Description: Oor Wullie is a mischievous wee Scottish laddie who lives in the fictional Scottish town of Auchenshoogle. He is instantly recognisable, sitting on his metal bucket, wearing his black dungarees and stout boots.

Oor Wullie and The Broons are cartoon strips that appear every week in the Sunday Post newspaper. Both strips have achieved legendary status and in 2016 they celebrate their 80 th anniversary!

Oor Wullie is the iconic wee Scottish laddie from the fictional town of Auchenshoogle. The image of Wullie sitting on his upturned bucket, wearing his famous black dungarees is as familiar to Scots as Edinburgh Castle. Wullie wages a constant war against boredom and he includes attending school in his list of boring things to do. He is a great righter of wrongs and will bravely tackle bullies to protect his lifelong pals Fat Bob, Soapy Soutar and Wee Eck. His occasional girlfriend Primrose Patterson is the only one allowed to call him William.

Wullie loves life, fun and laughter and even the figures of authority in his world; Ma, Pa and long suffering PC Murdoch have to smile at his energetic pranks. He speaks a unique brand of Scots language which includes his famous sayings ‘Jings!’, ‘Crivvens!’ and ‘Help Mah Boab!’

The marvellous artwork and well observed storylines means that everyone recognises a little of themselves in these classic tales.  The strips often feature celebrity appearances and the famous faces that appear in Oor Wullie or The Broons see it as a great honour.
