Western Animation / Chorlton and the Wheelies

Left to right: Fenella and Chorlton.

Chorlton and the Wheelies is a British stop-motion program, created by Cosgrove Hall, that aired between 1976 and 1979. It was about Chorlton, an orange happiness dragon, that lived in Wheelie World, a strange world populated by round creatures with wheels instead of legs. It was Chorlton's duty to protect these wheelies from the evil kettle witch Fenella, who wished to create misery and depression for the world.


  • Dumb Is Good - Chorlton isn't the brightest crayon in the box, but at least he's happy.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar - In "Some Like It Hot", Fenella taking off her raincoat (just her raincoat) is performed as a striptease.
  • Negative Continuity - In some episodes, Chorlton is immune to Fenella's magic, but in others, Fenella can successfully cast a spell on him.
