"I'm trying to find out some details of the Wombles Christmas Show, live on stage at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, in 1974, produced by Bill Kenwright (now one of the most successful British theatre producers)...I went to see the show as a kid, and now I'm trying to find a programme for it, with details of the cast and the songs used...I found a souvenir brochure for it a few months ago via the internet, which is great, but doesn't give any of those details! I even heard that they may not have printed a cast list, because of some legal problem based on the fact that they were advertising it as the Wombles, but it wasn't actually Mike Batt and co that appeared in this children's show... Can you or anyone else help me?! Many thanks" Rob Norris
"I read in a book about English comedian Jasper Carrot dressing up as a Womble and running around at a Wimbledon tennis match to promote his new single 'Funky Moped', sometime in the seventies. I don't know if this is true or just one of his stories, and have lost the book (sorry), but the book was called 'A Little Zit On The Side'"
