Chorlton and the Wheelies DVD Release Date Announced

The release date of the complete series of Chorlton and the Wheelies has been announced. The title, reissued by Fabulous Films, was recently officially added to the company’s website.

In 1976, the television show Chorlton and the Wheelies was first broadcast. Produced by Cosgrove Hall Productions for Thames Television, the show ran for 40 11-minute episodes over 3 series. It followed the adventures of Chorlton, an anthropomorphic happiness dragon, in “Wheelie World”, a place where people move around on wheels. The villain of the show is Fenella the Kettle Witch.

The series was written by Brian Trueman, with voices by Joe Lynch. Music, including the catchy theme tune, was composed by Joe Griffiths.

An extra on the release is the 1977 Christmas special Chorlton and the Ice World. There is also an interview with Brian Cosgrove.

This release follows other Cosgrove Hall Productions onto physical media via Fabulous Films. These include Count Duckula, Wind in the Willows and Jamie and the Magic Torch. There was also a reissue of 1989’s The BFG.

Jamie’s Thoughts: It is great to see yet another title from the Cosgrove Hall stable represented via Fabulous Films. Like other releases, it is unlikely to be remastered due to the available materials. This doesn’t matter at this point, as it’s just amazing to see this quirky animation out on a physical release in 2024!

The complete series of Chorlton and the Wheelies will be released on the 17th of June 2024. Please see the Fabulous Films website for more information.
