Good.
15 January 2002 | by (Balfast, N.Ireland) – See all my reviews

The wombles are a group of rubbish collectors that have lived on earth since Adam and Eve. They've been collecting litter and have been dedicated on cleaning up ever since.

This is a fun look at the wombles and is enjoyable at the things they get up to in their little home, but it isn't really for adults but they may find some amusing. It really depends on your age.3 out of 5
