Have your kids (or you) been watching the new Clangers series on ABC Kids?

The British animated show follows on from the original 1969 TV program, featuring an adorable family of space mice-like creatures.



Mother, Major, Tiny, Small and Granny, who live on a small, hollow planet, far-far away, talk to each other in whistles and eat a funny coloured soup from their planet's soup well.

Each episode follows the adventures of the small pink family, as they discover new things, and visit other friends that also reside on the blue planet; Soup Dragon, Baby Soup Dragon, the Iron Chicken, Sky Moos and Froglets.

A welcoming voice narrates the updated children's TV show; Michael Palin, who injects his British humour into each storyline.

The skills of Manchester-based stop-motion animation specialists Factory and award-winning puppet makers, Mackinnon and Saunders (Frankenweenie, Wes Andersonís Fantastic Mr Fox, Mars Attacks) have been put to good use to create the new Clangers series, which recently won the best pre-school programme in the UKís Broadcast Awards.

See the new Clangers air weekdays at 7.45 on ABC Kids.
