CBBC - The Wombles - 1,973 - 1,975
The Wombles is a stop motion animated British television series made in 1,973--1,975. Further animated episodes were made in 1,996--1,997. After the first Wombles book, published in 1,968, was featured on the BBC children's television programme Jackanory. the BBC commissioned producer FilmFair to create a television series of the books. The series was produced by Graham Clutterbuck and directed by Ivor Wood using stop-motion. The characters were all voiced by actor Bernard Cribbins. Sets and model making were by Barry Leith. Two series of 30 five minute episodes were produced, with the first series airing in 1,973, animated by Ivor Wood, and the second in 1,975, animated by Barry Leith. In all, sixty episodes were made. The original television series remained popular with children in the eighties. After FilmFair was acquired by the Canadian company Cinar Films in 1,996, a new series of episodes was released in 1,997, with a number of new Womble characters. In the UK, the series was purchased by ITV.
