Oor Wullie

An almost legendary cartoon character appearing weekly in the almost as legendary "Sunday Post" newspaper, published by Dundee company of D.C. Thomson. This mischievous dungaree-wearing boy is known for uttering "Jings! Crivvens! Help ma Boab!". He was created by Dudley D. Watkins (1907-69), also known for The Broons and Desperate Dan. In 2016, Oor Wullie Bucket Trail involved individually-decorated sculptures being placed around Dundee and later auctioned for charity. This led to the Oor Wullie Bucket Trail across Scotland in 2019.
