Great Uncle Bulgaria is very old indeed and his fur has turned snow white with age and because his eyes aren't as sharp as they used to be he has two pairs of spectacles. He feels the cold a bit too these days so he wears a MacWomble tartan shawl. Great Uncle Bulgaria can be rather strict at times, but he has a very kind heart and he is very wise. The young Wombles believe that he knows everything. Great Uncle Bulgaria sometimes thinks he does too.
