Always a precocious lad; his demise is a tragic loss to parents Obadiah and Verrucca. From the age of 8 months he showed a predilection for dressing as a washerwoman, and the cause of the suspicious-looking bulges under his apron was a matter for much speculation in his home town of Cridling Stubbs.
He is shown here demonstrating how you can play tennis using a fat ball nicked from the bird table and a hand mirror.
Unfortunately a toad virus which had been affecting the local amphibian population saw the washerwoman's outfit, mistook him for the owner of Toad Hall, and done him in. The name didn't help either.
