The Fabulumperous Car
Top Gear meets Trumpton, as Wilf Weasel pimps Bungle Bunny’s ride
Animation & Artists Moving Image 1972 12 mins
Welcome to Woodsey New Town. Imagine the polar opposite of Milton Keynes and you’ve got the idea. In fact it’s so idyllic that its animal residents have all abandoned their vehicles and never want to leave. Not good news for mechanic Wilf Weasel, until Bungle Bunny decides he needs a special kind of car. George Moreno had worked with Tex Avery and the Fleischer Brothers in his native US in the 1930s, before setting up in the UK after the war. Sadly Woodsey was one of many projects that failed to make its mark, never getting beyond this pilot episode.
