I found this rhyme about Quatermass II. I'm trying to find out who wrote it and whether there's an expanded version somewhere. Does the rhyme have a real-world origin?
There was a man from outer space, He had a scar upon his face, The scar was caused by poisonous gas, His name, Professor Quatermass.
This rhyme certainly seems to link up with the film and the series, except for the first and second lines suggesting he was from outer space and was also infected (of course, out of four lines two being incorrect doesn't bode well).
I can certainly remember it from the mid 1960's, some ten years after the 1957 Quatermass II film starring Brian Donlevy (and also, of course, the 1955 series).
