Video: Wolfman - A Tough Hide to Fill

Clark's Trading Post

Lincoln, New Hampshire

Clark's Trading Post is a unique New England tourist attraction. Where else can you see bears play basketball for ice cream rewards, then ride on a steam train that's attacked by a demented mountain man in a Mad Max hot rod?

That crazy guy is called the "Wolfman," and he's been part of the show for decades. We hung out with two Wolfmen over the years -- the first in 1991 (played by Frank Aurelio), and then the long-lived Wolfman played by Bill Farrand. Farrand retired from the role in 2009 (and passed away in 2018).

This video offers a brief look at both Wolfmen.

The job requirements call for "Wolfie" to be at least 18, and this is a position where youth is no advantage. In our view, a competent Wolfman should be at least 40, eschew exercise, smoke heavily, and able to repress the natural urge to shout obscenities at children.

Wolfman - A Tough Hide to Fill (2001)

Hello pigeon lickers! You know something? I don't like Oh dags your plat mutt lapping marlin bopping yellow-bellied long nose geezers. What are you doing on my turf? I told you I'll take you and I'll take your heads and I'll stick it right down those jaws down there. My car runs offa flatlanders - If you doublecross me you'll become varmint stew, especially kids, little kids with skunk cabbage and rat tails, that's my favorite. De-de-duh-diyahhh!.

When you enter my zone, you've entered the danger zone, never you ever take a train ride and you ever come back alive your lives will never be the same again. You will live in nightmares for the rest your lives

[unintelligible ranting]

My car runs off of flatlanders and you can run that for me [vomit cackling sounds]

[Wolfmanmobile accelerating sounds]

What are you doing here? C'mon, give me a break, folks bothering me, want some peace and quiet around here y'know. [vomit cackling sounds]
