Truckers was a children’s stop frame animation series based on a trilogy of novels by the legendary Terry Pratchett in which a group of tiny sized Nomes (possibly of alien extraction but similar to Borrowers) have to search for a new home when the department store they live in is threatened with closure.
A classic slice of late period Cosgrove-Hallery, look out for the occasional scene of a human inserted into the proceedings ala The Secret Service.
