Overview

This children's fantasy is about the "Wombles," borrowed from a British TV series, who are furry creatures actors in suits, normally invisible to anyone but themselves, and whose mission in life is to clean up after humans -- their first chore was to pick up the forgotten apple core in the Garden of Eden. The British Wombles know something is wrong when humans start to notice them, beginning with little Kim Frogmorton Bonnie Langford and then her parents. In a series of vignettes, Wombles alone, or humans alone, or both together handle disconnected misadventures -- such as saving the Womble burrow at Wimbledon, fighting against pollution, and moaning over adult topics like an oil shortage, and a theater shortage, for that matter. A few Wombles are professional beasties such as Kenny Baker of R2-D2 fame, but for the most part, the scenarios are conventional and range from ordinary to insensitive.
