The Bottersnikes & Gumbles are coming to a TV near you! This Friday, August 19th Netflix is releasing a new series for kids ages 6-9 years old! While it is geared for boys and girls ages 6-9, grownups will enjoy the show too. This delightful, yet funny show is based on a beloved series of children's books that were published in the UK and Australia between 1967 and 1989. Until now, this children's show was only available in Australia and the UK. Netflix has now made the "Bottersnikes & Gumbles" series available to all subscribers. The show has these unique characters who live in a fantasy kingdom of rusting junk and abandoned things from the human world.
So what are Bottersnikes & Gumbles?
The Gumbles are the good guys....mostly..... while the Bottersnikes are the bad guys. The Bottersnikes are pictured on the left and the Gumbles on the right. If my boys were to write a story, I think the characters would be very similar to these pictures.
My boys and I just love the descriptions of these "creatures" along with their names.
# The Gumbles are Tink, Willi, Bounce, Happi, Merry, Float, Jolli and Toot
# Gumbles live on The Junk Highway in a Gumble Tree with an old school bus on it
# They are fun loving, resourceful thrill seekers who can squash and stretch into any direction
# Gumbles like gumbling around which is an extreme and exciting cross between parkour, free climbing and base jumping
#Their favorite snack is grubs
# The Bottersnikes are The King, Chank, Weathersnike, Gubbo, Smiggles, Glob and Snorg
# Bottersnikes live in Snike Hill and are ruled by The King Bottersnike
# They’re mean spirited, selfish, lazy, stinky, mostly evil creatures
# They’re half the size of a human adult, with hard scaly skin, sharp teeth, claws and ears that glow red hot when they get angry, which is most of the time
# Bottersnikes eat junk, rusty nails, but their favorite food is mattress stuffing
# The Bottersnikes are afraid of water because they shrink when they get wet
