When Hollywood Meets Wiffyville

Hilary Barraford collage

This is L. A. based actress Hilary Barraford (Go For Sisters, The Ice Cream Truck, Hot Dog). We last saw her in Wiffyville in 2013 until now that is. It was great to get another photo of her, this time  with book 2 – Princess Pumpalot: The Super-Farting Bean Mystery and compare and contrast with the original photo 7 years earlier. What can we say? Hilary hasn't changed a bit and is still a good farter!

Farty New Year!

Happy New Year from the Royal Household of Wiffyville (and the Toilet of Truth). Wishing everyone a Farty 2020. To celebrate we have raised the Wiffyville Royal Flag. AND... we now have a new hashtag as we move from last year's #Fart2019 to this year's #Fart2020.  Hooray.... it's #Fart2020!

Merry Christmas from Wiffyville!

Merry Christmas from the Royal Household of Wiffyville (and Guffy). I hope everyone is having a fart-tastic Christmas.

A Quarter of a Million views!

This is an odd one.

We posted an eight second video on YouTube in April 2017 of Princess Pumpalot (Julie Heatherill) farting Guffy (David Mairs) off the stage during one of our Edinburgh Festival Fringe performances and this video has been viewed more than 250 000 times.

Here is the link. Princess Pumpalot demonstrates her amazing farting skills

It just shows... farting is universal.

A Farty Thanks

Well, that was a blast. We'd like to thank everyone who attended Princess Pumpalot: The Ghostly Farting Monk Hunt at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It was the first year of our new show (the 7th year at the Fringe in total) and we introduced two new characters to Wiffyville – Prentiss the Plumber and Rat Atat – who joined regulars Steve the Werewolf, FAQ and The Bearded Witch.

The response was overwhelming including a number of very positive reviews.

It's great to have our new show - Princess Pumpalot: The Ghostly Farting Monk Hunt - up and running. It's always an exciting time to see a new production take shape AND what a positive intial response we've have had to our new adventure. 

"Lots of silly fun for an hour, with enough asides to the adults to keep it fresh". Sam Moore

"A lovely mid-morning show for any family with little ones who appreciate smelly jokes and giggles". All Edinburgh Theatre

A Real ★★★★★ Review

note handed to Gillian

We love this.

After one  of the 2019 Princess Pumpalot stage shows this note was handed to Princess Pumpalot (Gillian Goupillot) by a young girl.

Very good show.

Loved the farting.

Some very inspiring farts.


Absolutely tremendous to get this note.  THANK YOU.
