Wombling Free ★★ 1977

An English girl makes friends with a race of tiny, litter-hating furry creatures called Wombles. The creatures are visible only to the little girl because she is the only one who believes. Together they try to clean up a dirty world. British society is less cutting-edge about social roles, etc. than our enlightened one; be prepared for retrograde characterizations. Fun scene with Kelly/ Astaire-style dance number. 86m/C VHS . GB Bonnie Langford, David Tomlinson; D: Lionel Jeffries; M: George Bassman.
