In this feature-length adventure, the Wombles protest against the pollution on their habitat in Wimbledon Common. They attempt to make the humans aware of the problem, inventing a pollution-free car and staging a musical in an abandoned theatre.

This is the story on Wombling Free

Based on the popular children's series, Wombling Free follows the adventures of the furry loveable litter-pickers from Wimbledon Common - The Wombles.
Only seen by those who believe in them, their work goes largely unnoticed until they are spotted by a young girl, who invites them to her birthday party to show her mother and the residents of Wimbledon that the cuddly crusaders do exist.

Meanwhile Orinoco, Tobermory, Bungo and the rest of The Wombles are up to Womble-ful things. They invent a pollution free car made of tin cans and mop handles, and stage a Hollywood musical extravaganza in an abandoned theatre - then launch the first balloon-powered aircraft!

The film on the DVD is alright, but they could of done better on the bonus features, the trailer is ok but the interviews are unedited from the Electric Winter Show and are too long and David Tomlinsons interview contains one or two bits of swearing, not sure that is suitable for a kids DVD.

Still, a good film for DVD but the bonus features could of been better,
3/5

I watched this many times when I was a child so I bought it for my own. They need to be a little older to properly appreciate/understand it(5 & 3 yro) but I loved watching it again with them all the same. The message it has about being environmentally responsible was lost on me as a child, but as an adult is very relevant. Love the music, love the quality.

Bought as gift for Grandson as he loved the Wombles song on another CD he was given. I was hoping it was going to be a set of the former TV programmes but it is more like a short film. My grandson loved it

Having watched this film, it makes me wonder why there weren't more made, the Wombles transfer brilliantly from Stop-motion to live-action, the vocal talents are fantastic, the Wombles sound just right, the guest actors are superb, especially Bonnie Langford in her first major role, the costumes are brilliant, the story wonderfully simple yet epic and Mike Batt's music is magical as always, in short, if you love the Wombles, see this film, and if you aren't a Wombles fan, still get it, it's likeable for all!

This DVD is part actors and part characters 'wombles'. No animation or CGI, it's as was when made. My children thoroughly enjoyed it and were excited to see what the wombles looked like having heard the story on CD. They were not disappointed that it wasn't 'modern' in its making at all. Would recommend for its gentle, funny storyline for children and parents that remember it fondly.

I was so excited when I found this as I've not seen it since I was little. It is a super harmless and perfect family film. I love it and so do my 4 children (17,12,9 and 2 years old)
