Chorlton and the Wheelies

Chorlton and the Wheelies was an animated stopmotion series that ran from 1976 until 1979. The series was created by Cosgrove Hall films for the ITV station Thames Television, and named after the location of the studio, Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester, England.

This strange show takes place in Wheelie World, which is inhabited principally by the “wheelies”, a race of anthropomorphic creatures who locomote by means of wheels. They have three wheels each: two large ones at the front, and a smaller centred one at the back. The wheels are replaceable, and suitable wheels grow on vegetation found in Wheelie World.
