Oor Rabbie Rides Again
Here Oor Wullie becomes the Scottish legend Tam O’ Shanter. Dressed in his tartan dungarees, Tam is covered in patches which use words and images from the poem by Robert Burns. He is seen here riding on his bucket with the head of his trusty mare Maggie at the front and the face of his ‘sulky sullen’ wife Kate at the rear. The character of Tam himself - being a cheeky, cheery, trusty scoundrel with a romantic soul and a wee bit of the devil about him - is not so different from that of Oor Dundee heartthrob.
