The Wombles were fictional television characters created by Elizabeth Beresford and were a popular 1980s childrens television series. The series was set on Wimbledon Common and featured the Wombles cleaning up and reusing the litter left behind by people.

The Wombles went on to score a chart success with "The Wombling Song", perhaps the first but not the last instance of fictional characters recording and releasing a popular song. All music for the series was composed by Mike Batt, perhaps best known for his work on Watership Down and with the folk group Steeleye Span.

Wombles continue to be popular to this day, still making public appearences and occasionally releasing albums of Christmas songs with Roy Wood of Wizzard fame.
