British stop motion animated children's television series. The first episode was broadcast by the BBC on November 16, 1969 and a further twenty-five episodes were made. The twenty sixth episode was broadcast on November 10, 1972 and the final Clangers programme was a four minute election special on October 10, 1974. The programme featured a number of small creatures living in peace and harmony on - and in - a small, hollow planet far far away, nourished by Blue String Pudding, and Green Soup harvested from the planet's volcanic soup wells by the Soup Dragon. The Clangers looked similar to mice and anteaters, though they were pink, wore clothes, and spoke in whistles. These whistles (performed on swanee whistles)followed the rhythm and intonation of a script in the English language, including swear-words!

A vintage Jimmy Jet in action. Deluxe Reading sold these in grocery and drug stores and their toys were place on the top shelves to keep grubby little hands like mine from them. I remember bugging the heck out of my parents for this toy and many others. Most of Deluxe's toys were big and fanstastic! The grocery and drug stores had lay away for the items because most of these toys cost a week's salary back then. Please excuse the filming. I was sick when I was doing the filming and looking through a view finder. The lights were dimmed so you could see how it operates.

From the movie "The Wackiest Wagon Train in the West"(1976)
...which simply strung together three episodes of the not very popular "Gilligan's Island" remake "Dusty's Trail" (1973)
Here's how it goes:
Produced by Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of Gilligan's Island, this series took the
character of Gilligan, changed his name to Dusty, placed him on a wagon train and dared him
to try to find the west! They surrounded Dusty with very recognizable characters -
The wagon master played by Forrest Tucker (Skipper);
a rich couple, Ivor Francis and Lynn Wood (Mr. & Mrs.
Howell); saloon girl Jeannine Riley (Ginger);
school marm Lori Saunders (Mary Ann); and an
engineer played by Bud Cort (Professor). With Dusty
as guide, the wagon train wandered all over the place,
and it was a sure bet that this group would never
make its way west, in much the same way the
castaways were never able to get off the island thanks
to the lovable, well-meaning Gilligan...Starring:
Bob Denver - Dusty,
Forrest Tucker - Wagonmaster Callahan, also
Ivor Francis - Mr. Carson Brookhaven,
Lynn Wood - Mrs. Brookhaven,
Jeannine Riley - Lulu McQueen,
Lori Saunders - Betsy,
Bill Cort - Andy
