Wombledon is the rubbish parts of Wimbledon and Wimbledon Common, where the messy dirty Wombles live.
Wombles spend a lot of their time recycling rubbish, which is why its such an untidy area and an eyesore.
The Wombles are fictional characters created by British author Elisabeth Beresford,originally appearing in a series of children's novels from 1968. The characters later became nationally famous in the mid 1970s as a result of a popular BBC children's television show using stop motion animation. A number of spin-off novelty songs also became major hits in the British music charts.
The Wombles are pointy-nosed furry creatures that live in burrows, where they help the environment by collecting and recycling rubbish in useful and ingenious ways. Their motto is Make Good Use of Bad Rubbish. This "green" message was ahead of its time in the 1970s. Although Wombles live in every country in the world, the stories focus on the life of the burrow in Wimbledon Common in London, England, which is the original Wombledon rubbish tip.
