Timothy Hedgehog

I found this little chap wandering around in the garden, looking dazed and confused. He agreed to make this video if I fed him some extra snails for dinner.

Wow a supersonic hedgehog

You do realise Guiseppe, that this is what happens to Hedgehogs when they have been inhabiting a radio-active compost heap? Sorry to keep harping on about the compost heap, but it's true. If you shine a black light on Timothy, he'll probably glow too...good luck! xx

Dr Joseph McCrumble said...

PLum - He is indeed. I'm keeping him as a pet. Methinks he might come in useful

Hazel - I tested him out with my Geiger counter, but there was NO sign of radiation. I'm not sure what happened to him, but I'm glad I found him first!

Timothy Hedgehog. Hello and Welcome - for the first, and hopefully not the last time. But, what has happened to your voice ? I have sound, but I can hear not even a squeek coming from you. I don't know about radio active, I'm think laryingitis. Too many damp nights in the compost heap.

Dr. McC. A visit to Mrs. Tiggywinkles is on the cards. That, or some Strepsils.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT A HEDGEHOG COULD BE USEFUL FOR EXCEPT AS A SPARE TOOTH BRUSH OR BACK STRATCHER, COULD YOU ENLIGHTEN ME.

Dr Joseph McCrumble said...

Micky - Timothy has been reprieved. He'll be back, no doubt

Plum - Talking hedgehogs have a range of uses. I'll think of something suitable in due course.

Not sure about that lip-sync. Did you employ the people who do the Kinder egg commercials?

"I tested him out with my Geiger counter, but there was NO sign of radiation". This is the second time I've read that phrase this week. Did you feed him the polonium laced snails? Come to think of it he looks rather like a Russian hat with paws. I suspect foul play. You won't be seeing him again.

Sounds a bit like Brian Blessed after his drink's been spiked.
Not that I know what that would sound like. Look they never proved nuffin.
Good work on the book, Dr. Between you and Mr Gorilla Bananas that's Christams covered.

Dr Joseph McCrumble said...

Kim - the lip synch was a technical issue caused by using cheap software, and the fact that Timothy does not have an appropriately articulated jaw for the sounds he wants to make

Daphne - He's still here, with me now, chewing on a snail. I reprieved him, after realising that his deep voice has the authority I need to persuade people to buy my book

Kieran - Timothy doesn't have a clue who you mean. But thanks a lot for buying the book! May your Christmas be filled with joy!

Is it true. Is Denise and Timothy hedgehog starring in panto?

Dr Joseph McCrumble said...

Missy - True, he's cute. But he's also a bit lonely, what with being the first talking hedgehog ever.

Plum - where have you been? I looked at your blog to see nothing but a smattering of gibberish. I'll ask at the local village hall to see if they need any more performers for the panto. They are doing Dick Whittington this year. Maybe they could subsitute Timothy for the cat.

Dr JMC
My blog broke down however I have cover with the RAC so hope it will be up and running soon.
Now then. now then, Denise and Timothy the hedgehog cat what a marvellous idea for panto. Some of my residents at the home for retired cabaret artists would be willing to perform.
