Twinkle's friends included Fulton the camel, Sanford the boastful Parrot, Wilbur the mischievous Monkey and Herman Hyena. The cartoon segments were ninety-seconds in length and told stories aimed at preschoolers.

Twinkles magically transforms his trunk into any object, (a trumpet, a hammer, etc). To activate his magic trunk Twinkles says, "Nose, Nose, anything goes..."

In the episode "Twinkles and the Haunted House" Twinkles needs to break down a door to escape a haunted house so she says "Nose, Nose, anything goes, knock down the door with hammer blows" and his magic trunk changed into a sledge hammer that he used to break the door down.

The Twinkles character was also a cereal box mascot for General Mills' Twinkles Cereal: "The Star-Shaped Cereal." Its cereal box opened up like a book to reveal such stories as "Sleepy the Baby Kangaroo" and "The Lion Who Loved Himself."
