History

Oor Wullie is a precocious little kid who carries a bucket which he frequently uses as a seat. He lives in a Scottish town called Auchenshoogle, which he spends his days roaming with his gang, Fat Bob, Wee Eck, Soapy Soutar and Primrose Paterson. He frequently clashes with local policeman PC Joe Murdoch.
