The Clangers

The Clangers are small, pink mouse-like creatures who live in the caves under their home planet. On their adventures they encounter creatures like iron chickens and sentient musical instruments. The Clangers share their world with a number of other beings: First is the Soup Dragon, who uses the volcanic wells at the heart of the planet to make her delicious soup. Second are the Froglets, small orange blobs with eyes that move through the universe in a top hat. And the Glow Buzzers, whose glow lights the Clangers caves.
