A children's entertainer
. He is best remembered for his act involving his emu
, and probably not his balancing act.
Rod Hull and Emu was an act that involved Mr Hull putting an emu shaped puppet over his arm, and then attacking people with the puppet. This caused much hilarity during the seventies, and even up to the eighties. Rod Hull and Emu memorably appeared on Michael Parkinson's chat show, causing the predicatable chaos, and also had their own show, which for some reason was set in a pink windmill.
Rod Hull died recently, falling off his roof whilst attempting to adjust his television ariel.
