In a faraway forgotten valley, heaped with long abandoned junk, a timeless battle rages between good and evil… and between squashy and scaly, happy and grumpy, clever and wily…handsome and plain old ugly.

This is the land of Bottersnikes & Gumbles.

Based on the original seventies Penguin books our series tells the story of our three Gumble heroes Tink, Bounce and Willi. Gumbles can squash and stretch into any imaginable shape without being hurt. They love nothing more than to ‘gumble’ all day long, which means crazy, stretchy, jack-ass style capers around their junk valley.
They must avoid capture by the Bottersnikes – the stinkiest, ugliest, laziest and most mean spirited of creatures. They eat mattress stuffing and rusty nails and like to put the gumbles to work whenever they can lay their claws on them.
