THE TRUMPTONSHIRE TRILOGY
Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley.
T3 - Home to Windy Miller,PC McGarry No.452, & Pugh,Pugh,Barney McGrew and friends.
BBC kids animation from the era of the Clangers,Pogles Wood,The Herbs,Mary Mungo & Midge
These were 3 seperate,but inter-connected,animated BBC tv series designed for pre-school children.
First broadcast in the Beeb's famous "Watch With Mother" lunchtime slot between 1966 and 1969,still being shown on NickleOdeon and now digitally restored and available on both dvd and Blu Ray.
Each series title was a seperate location within the fictional English county of Trumptonshire.
There were no talking animals,mythical beings or magical forces at work here.Just normal people going about their normal,everyday business.
But never mundane,as each 15 minute episode threw up a new mini crisis,which was always met head-on with a cheerful "can do" attitude and frequent bouts of song
A world that benefited greatly from the 3D reality of actual models & sets and the life-giving powers of stop motion animation.And one that's kept millions of kids happy over the years,whilst achieving a
lasting place in many an adult subconscious.With characters like Windy Miller and the Trumpton Firemen now enjoying cult status.
And this site is a celebration of their impact -both then and now
A chance to relive some memories and to sort your Pugh's from your Barney McGrew's.
And if it raises the odd smile along the way then so much the better.
This is a non-commercial reference site purely designed to enlighten and enthuse.And clearly all rights remain with those concerned.
On the other hand,all rights to inherit the earth remain with those of a happy,kind and selfless disposition. And my thanks to Trumptonshire for reminding us.
