The Return Of The Wombles: first preview of the new CGI TV series

Mike Batt has released an 8-minute promotional video ‘update on the imminent return of The Wombles’, showing footage of the new CGI TV episodes along with a look behind the scenes at the Dramatico Animation studio.

He’s also revealed that - as many fans had hoped - Bernard Cribbins will be returning as the voice of Great Uncle Bulgaria.

However, the new series looks unlikely to be on our television screens until at least the end of this year. Mike Batt said on Twitter: “When I’ve finished the first series! (To a quality, not really to a date.) Maybe Xmas special 2016 then through 2017.”
