The characters became nationally famous in the UK in the mid-1970s as a result of a very popular BBC children's television show using stop motion animation. A number of spin-off novelty songs also became hits in the British music charts. The Wombles (band) was the brainchild of British music writer and composer Mike Batt.
The Womble motto is "Make Good Use of Bad Rubbish." This environmentally friendly message was a reflection of the growing ecology movement of the 1970s.
