THE TRUMPTONSHIRE TRILOGY
Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley.
This site is a reference library for all things Trumptonshire.
A factual look at this iconic bit of kids' tv fiction. Sorting the Pugh's from the Barney McGrew's.
New to Trumptonshire ? .... here's a thumbnail version of the "overview" page ....
3 series. Seperate,but inter-connected,animated BBC tv series for pre-school children.
Each one a different location within the fictional English county of Trumptonshire.
Just normal people. No talking animals or magical forces. Day-to-day problem solving tackled with a cheerful "can do" attitude,and frequent bouts of song to help things along.
Forget CGI This was a world created with the use of actual models & sets,combined with the life-giving powers of stop motion animation.
First broadcast in the BBC's famous "Watch With Mother" lunchtime slot between 1966 and 1969.
Along with other iconic animated contemporaries like the Clangers,Pogles,Herbs,Bagpuss et al.
Also shown throughout Europe. Repeated ever since. And still available on both dvd and Blu Ray.
Cult status now enjoyed by characters like Windy Miller and the Trumpton Firemen.
Parish notice .... Trumptonshire reminds us that all rights to inherit the earth should indeed remain with those of a happy,kind and selfless disposition. But all rights to Trumptonshire remain with those concerned.
And still very much alive
.... and singing !
