wombles1 *singing* "Underground, overground wombling freeeeee.....the Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we.....making good use of the things that we find....things that the every-day folk leave behind"

OHHHH I'm in such a happy place now!  You can keep Underground Ernie and The Fimbles give me the old classics any time and particularly one that comes with an environmental message - can you believe that The Wombles have been showing us how to go 'green' for the best part of 40 years!!

wombles2Just in case you've just arrived from Mars and have no idea what I'm talking about here's the skinny on the wonderful Wombles:  well, they're....Wombles, funny long-snouted little guys, and a gal - Madame Chalet - who live undergound on Wimbledon Common and they love to collect and recycle the junk and rubbish that humans leave behind; I wish there were Wombles for my teenagers' bedrooms!

There were 60 5-minute-long episodes made in total, with the first one airing in 1973, and they are ALL on this DVD set that has an rrp of £14.99 but is practically being given away by HMV for just £5.99 with delivery thrown in for good measure too!

Thanks to andywedge over at HUKD!
