Bottersnikes and Gumbles 2015 series - publisher film/TV children's fantasy

'Based on the original seventies Penguin books our series tells the story of our three Gumble heroes Tink, Bounce and Willi. Gumbles can squash and stretch into any imaginable shape without being hurt. They love nothing more than to 'gumble' all day long, which means crazy, stretchy, jack-ass style capers around their junk valley. They just have to avoid capture by the Bottersnikes - the stinkiest, ugliest, laziest and most mean spirited of creatures. They eat mattress stuffing and rusty nails and like to put the gumbles to work whenever they can lay their claws on them.'
