AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'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.'

'Australian children’s TV may have recently picked up an Emmy Kids award for the ABCME animation Doodles, but otherwise kids’ TV in this country is in a dire state.

'Free-to-air TV networks have to commission certain amounts of children’s programs each year. But in recent years there’s been a dismaying lack of new live action shows, or recognisably Australian content. Instead, local children’s TV has become dominated by animation with little sense of place.'
