There’s a new TV show that is making my kids stop in their tracks each morning – no easy feat when there’s a few to please. They are loveable and pink – and appear every weekday morning at 745am on ABC Kids.
Join the peace loving Clanger Family from February 1 and enjoy some good old fashioned family values. A huge hit in the UK when it launched last year, this recent remake of the classic 1960’s stop-motion series is narrated by Michael Palin (Monty Python) and is as charming and kookily surreal as ever.
The Clangers are a family of pink, long-nosed, inventive and inquisitive mouse-shaped creatures who live on a small blue planet, out in the starry stretches of space not far from our world.
The planet’s surface is peppered with craters topped with metal dustbin lids. These flip open and shut with a “Clang!” – hence the series’ name – and the craters they cover reveal steps and tunnels to warm, inviting caves and burrows. The family have many friends (the cast regulars) that participate in and make up their community. But space is also filled with all manner of weird and wonderful objects and creatures that can visit the planet too. These visits are often the catalyst for a brand new adventure for the Clangers and their friends.
Kind creatures, the Clangers are welcoming, warm and generous in the way they behave. They are inclusive and quirky, which often results in comedy from both characters and the situations they find themselves in.
They are problem solvers too, usually discovering that the help of others is the solution to any problem! They communicate with distinctive whistles and a Narrator assists the audience by commenting on their everyday events and adventures – rather like a knowing wildlife observer.
A gorgeous, gentle and quietly entertaining show for preschoolers which will also be a treat for grandparents or parents that love a dose of nostalgia as they remember the original series.
