Underground Overground Wombling Free!
11 July 2006 | by jackstnicholasSee all my reviews

I Love the wombles and I always have. My favorite character is Orinoco Because he is lazy and likes eating. I also like Bungo because he is Clumsy and over enthusiastic. Wellington is good because he is Scientifically inclined. He is shy but very clever. I love Tomsk Because he is ever energetic and athletic. I've always liked Great Uncle Bulgaria. He is the oldest and wisest Womble. Tobermory is an Engineer and is also a handy man. I admire Madame Cholet because she's The French Cook! I like the idea of them going around Wimbledon Common, putting litter in their tidy bags. They live in burrows. I like Superwomble and OOW!
