The Clangers are unique, imaginary creatures; a family who live on a blue planet in space.
They are inquisitive, adventurous creatures who are very loving and supportive of each other and their friends, communicating with their now famous high-pitched Clanger whistles.
The original Clangers are fondly remembered and are viewed by many as a cult series.
A brand-new series of 26 episodes, commissioned by CBeebies, is in production now. These will join the BAFTA award- winning first series of 52 episodes of stop-frame which launched in 2015 and regularly hit the #1 ratings spot on the channel. Contributors include Peter Firmin, the original designer/co-creator and Dan Postgate, son of co-creator Oliver Postgate, who has written several scripts.
Series 1 has already sold to the USA , Australia, Canada and has several sales pending via its international distribution partner BBC Worldwide.
