orinoco-doorChannel 5 announced today that a brand new series of the children’s classic The Wombles will air on its popular pre-school strand, Milkshake in 2015.

Jessica Symons, Head of Children’s Channel 5 said “This show was so loved by generations of children and the time is right for it to gain a whole new following. The stories and characters are as compelling as ever and we’re excited to welcome The Wombles to Milkshake.”

Dramatico Animation Ltd will be creating a series of 52 x 11 minute episodes. Mike Batt, who now owns the rights to The Wombles and wrote the programme’s original theme tune confirms that the new TV series will be CGI; “It will look more like stop motion but with great fur. We believe that there are audiences of new children who missed The Wombles the first time around and will be thrilled to see the brilliant high quality animation and new musical productions.”
