The Wombles in space, well who would have thought it!
I was raised on The Wombles, back in the early 1970s which looked pretty much like this but with all the characters voiced by the great Bernard Cribbins. Consequently, watching bits of this episode online, with lots of new Wombles and lots of different actors doing the voices, well it all seemed a bit off and not quite right! There's cars, helicopters and rocket ships...its all so "modern!"
Still who am I to deny another generation the pleasure of those furry little litter pickers..... and I do enjoy a really obscure find for this blog.
...by the way, they don't really get into space, they just think they do. A bit of a spoiler there but it makes me feel better to know The Clangers remain safe from discovery.
