Trollkins - "Trolltown Goes Trollywood" episode

Trollkins is a Saturday-morning cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera in 1981 for CBS. The characters and setting were reminiscent of Smurfs (and, to a degree, the Norfin, Russ and Damit Troll dolls popular in the early 1980s) albeit more colorful and with a marked Southern influence, while the plots usually were borrowed from The Dukes of Hazzard, albeit with broader comedy and episode titles playing on popular film releases of the time (e.g., "Escape from Alcatroll," "Raiders of the Lost Troll," "Dr. Frankentroll, I Presume," "Mirror, Mirror on the Troll" and "Pixlee and the Seven Trolls").

Wikipedia has an article related to:

The principal residents of Trolltown were:

  • Mayor Trolliver J. Lumpkin (referenced early on as Maxwell Lumpkin), the short, bearded mayor who tended to speak in spoonerisms;
  • Blitz Lumpkin, the mayor's son;
  • Flooky, Blitz's canine pet (usually saying but "Trolf!");
  • Sheriff Pudge Trollsom, Troll County's perennially inept sheriff;
  • Pixlee Trollsom, the sheriff's daughter;
  • Dolly Durkle and Flake Furkle, the sheriff's "deputrolls" (Flake having a rather inept weakness for invention and Dolly being the trash-talker),
  • Grubb Trollmaine, proprietor of Grubb's Diner, the local greasy-spoon, and
  • the Trollchoppers, a trio of bullies on motorcycles (Bogg, Slug and Afid) who often made trouble for Blitz and Pixlee (Bogg in particular, who had romantic delusions on Pixlee).

Just as the Smurfs are fond of the word "smurf", the characters in Trollkins use the word "troll" in a variety of contexts. Each half-hour episode consisted of two stories.

The "Trollkins Trot" is held on March 17, coincident with St. Patrick's Day.
