Tuesday Is Theme Tunes Day – Chorlton And The Wheelies


We’re back in the realm of kids’ TV this week, in the company of a friendly dragon with a Lancashire accent, a witch who lives in a kettle and a world filled with beings who have wheels instead of legs.

Yes, it’s the classic Chorlton and the Wheelies, which ran in the UK for three seasons (40 episodes) between 1976 and 1979. It was the first show made by animation studio Cosgrove Hall, which went on to create the legendary Danger Mouse and a host of other icons of UK kids’ TV.

  1. Third & Bird. Wins hands down! Not to mention the regular big musical numbers mid programme!
